Having problems with your 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 ?
I have a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4. When the truck slows to a stop, and just as it stops, there is a very loud grinding noise that comes from the rear of the vehicle. I checked underneath and there is fluid splattered all over the driveshaft and rear axle. What is this problem and how do I go about fixing it? .
Hey am in the same situation as you are, accept am in rebuilding faze right now. the grinding noise is a very bad sign. u probobly destroyed drive pinion and ring gear Solution: u have to unscrew the cover of your differential and drain the fluid, then visually inspect what happend indside. replace all bearings and seals or other destroyed parts. reassemble,fill with differential fluid. ready to go
SOUND LIKE WORN DRIVE SHAFT BEARINGS AND A LEAKING DIFFERENTIAL PINION FLANGE SEAL.
