      Low Gear: For automatic trans, it must be in neutral and the vehicle must not be moving. For manual trans, clutch must be in, and also, I believe the vehicle must not be moving.

      Fluid is 3 quarts of 75W-90 oil. That's 2.8 liters. If you have limited slip differential, add a container of friction modifier. To find out if you have limited slip, search this forum for articles on axle codes.

      I used a tube of Permatex Ultra-Grey sealant, no gasket.

      I want to mention something else. You may find and be surprised if you find you have a plastic cover installed. I wish I had known, I would have replaced it with a steel one.

      If you are going to do the rear differential fluid, make sure you can get the fill plug off the front of the differential BEFORE you pull the cover. I've heard of a few people who drained their fluid only to find they couldn't get the fluid back in since they couldn't get the fill plug open.

      Also, When you say you can't get low range (I'm assuming you mean 4x4 low) you have to do what was posted above AND be in 4x4 high already..

      i have leakage in the oil pan at engine, so gonna use same kind of gasket and fill it up with new oil after. and the diff is leaking, gonna buy right oil for that tomorrow.

      gonna try the neutral thingy to see if it works, guess i need to go outside and wheel lock my front wheels in the center and go back and neutral the car and stand still.

      any idea how much you need to tighten the bolts on diff and oil pan after the work?

      gonna buy Trans Castrol Syntrax Longlife full syntetic 75W-90 for my transmission and using a syntetic ford standard oil for the engine. guess i can use same in diff as both are 75-90w?!

      Cork gasket, tighten to snug plus a little bit? I know you can overtighten a cork gasket and ruin it, so I would run just snug and if it leaks, then a bit more.
