    Default Merry Christmas - Your front diff is shot.

    Coming back from P.A. this past weekend I started to hear a rumbling and high pitched noise from under the Jeep. Yesterday on the way to work it sounded like somthing in the drivetrain was gonna explode - LOUD rumbling and REALLY high pitched noise from the drivetrain. I was stressing that it was the tranny or transfer case.

    No way it was gonna make the drive to Chantilly where I usually take it so it went to Ourisman Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Alexandria. So far the experiance has been very good.

    The problem is the front R/P and various bearings are shot. How it happened I don't know. I have not been in the water since before the Alloy USA shafts and seals were installed. The front axle got new inner and the outer seals and oil under warranty when the rear oil seal was fixed just a few months ago (And both axles got new brake pads).

    I pull the fill plugs and check the diff oil whenever I change the engine oil, and I changed the engine oil/filter and air filter, checked the master cyl/tranny/transfer case/diff levels, and filled the washer fluid before I left for P.A.

    The Dealership is going to rebuild the front diff under the 7/70 powertrain warranty.

    That sucks, but at least it is covered by warranty Alex.
