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?

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

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.
