Default I'm starting to hate working on my car, help please

Ok, so I changed my diff fluid last week and notice it was leaking a little. So I decided to re-do it and put some more of the gasket seal on there this time. Last time putting the fluid back in was the most frustrating thing I've ever done on a car and took about 3 hours and I spilled oil EVERYWHERE. So this time I went and got a pump from Autozone, well it doesn't work. So I was able to find some hose laying around this time and I have one end in the fill hole and the other end coming out the driver side and I'm trying to squeeze the fluid in. Well its been over an hour and I have about half a liter in. There has to be a better way to do this but every write up I read just says to fill it, nothing on how to do so. I'd love it if I didn't have to have my car towed to a shop just so they can fill the diff, what can I do?

Is that pump just not sealed right to transfer only the fluid (no air) to the diff? For the trans in the 99 I tried squeezing the fluid from the bottle through some tube/hose..it takes a while but it did work somewhat.

Well the pump I got I guess is just a POS. You have to be the hulk to squeeze it so maybe it just can't push the fluid. It says its made for it but obviously not. I'm trying the hose method right now, it just isn't working.

That pump the type that just screws into the top of the bottle of fluid?

Id check out some videos of others filling their diffs to see what they used.

Yeah basically but it won't even pump air.

I have used this one for that job. Bought it at a local parts store. Used it about 5 times now on mine and some others vehicles. Just make sure you have the flow direction correct.

When i didnt have a pump. I always just glued a piece of hose to the nipple of a gear lube bottle. (about 2 ft in length and 3/8 id hose) then put it in whole turn bottle upside down and gently squeeze til bottle is about 1/2 crushed then turn upright release let air into bottle. redo til bottle almost MT. takes about 5 mins. to fill the diff.

this is what i use now. works great.

I feel your pain man... I had the same issue on my 1999 Ranger and got gear dope everywhere, I was pissed. It smells terrible and I even tried to siphon it out with a hose and what a terrible idea that was. I ended up getting one of those turkey baster looking things and doing it little by little, slowly but surely I got it all filled up painlessly.

I just bought a cheap weed sprayer, cut off the end nozzle and dumped a few quarts of the diff fluid in it and pumped it up, worked pretty well. but I can agree with trying any other way to get it in, nothing was working easily.

I've had good luck using Amsoil products and they have a hand pump that screws right to the top of their standard bottles.

Well I was able to get a different pump at advanced auto parts that worked. Without a pump though, I'm not sure I could have got it. Its almost like diff fluid defies gravity lol. Oh well, it was frustrating but a learning expierence, on to bigger and better things. Thanks guys for the help

This may seem silly but I wonder if one of those pump bottles for hand lotion would work...some of that stuff is very thick. Just put the nozzle in and push up on the whole bottle?

I use a hand pump from napa. I also lay under the car and push the entire bottle up and down against he trunk. I found that easier than working the pump handle. It's a slow process for sure, lots of muscle cramping working that pump. Lol

When I did mine, I had the idea to heat it up to make it easier to flow, This is a bad idea, everything around my garage smelled of gear oil for a long time.

When i went to go change my diff fluid the first thought in my head was : ****ing ford...how hard is it to put a freaking drain bolt in the diff cover ?


i wasn't prepared to scrape old gasket and use RTV sealant for a new gasket so I just got a transfer pump to suck out as much fluid as i could via the fill bolt and refill the same way

arm felt dead after but it got the job done
