My 05 rear pass failed at 13000. Fixed no hassle. Reported.
I agree with your suspicion. I have a '4KCXE, no leaks yet, but I plan to do the axle vent mod, add an aluminum cover and replace the fluid with synthetic this fall.beached_titan said:i am convinced that the leaks are coming from the pressure build up inside the axle, both vaccum and release. the one way little crap *** check valve that nissan decided to use for a vent valve may be doing an ok job at releasing pressure, but what happens when the diff cools down and all the pressure inside has been released? the check valve is not letting air back in.... all other trucks have a hose that runs up under the bed, why not the titan? i ran my own vent tube up to the fuel tank. we shall see if this has any effects on the longevity of my axle seals...
Should be covered under the warranty. If they say it isnt just go to a different dealer.keane said:Looks like my Rear Passanger seal is leaking - it was in two weeks ago for an oil change and to get my bed bolts and spacers fixed and they didn't notice it. Hope it is covered by the PT warranty as I am over the 36 moth one.
I think vent failure may indeed be the case. If the check valve gets plugged, I think the axle seals handle the venting. The people who replaced the diff vent check valve with a vent hose with a fuel filter on the end don't seem to be blowing axle seals.RB's Titan said:Could it be the vent tube not venting correctly do to over fills duirng diff oil changes?
where can i see the mod at... is there a link and parts list and a how to write up on it .... if so, can someone point me in the right direction?bestatchess said:I think vent failure may indeed be the case.
