When changing fluids (diffs, radiator, trans.) are there gaskets on the drain/fill plugs that need to be replaced as well? I'm looking to do my 60K service and want to make sure I have everything I need. If there are gaskets, please advise me on where to get a hold of the correct ones

Thanks

I believe you'll need new crush rings for the drain and fill plugs for both differentials. You might also need some for the tranny and x-fer- I can't remember.

hmmm I"ve never used any new crush rings or anything. If i'm worried about it i just take a glob of RTV gasket sealant and put it on the threads.

They should cost about 70-90 cents each - so I'd change them atleast once every 60-90K
X-case & Tranny fill/drain 90430-18008
Front diff Drain 90430-24003
Rear diff fill/drain & front fill 12157-10010

Just get them from Barb @ Trdparts4u.com

There are steel crush washers that come stock on the diffs, they should ONLY be used on the diffs. There are soft aluminum washers that come stock on the t-case & gearbox, these could be used on the diffs too if you wanted (except the front diff drain which is a different size and is soft copper). The soft metal gets hardened with each use, so they don't seal as well after a while. Myself I will typically use them twice each, cycling them from drain to fill to discard. I get a bag of them from the dealer.

Do not overtighten the plugs in an aluminum case.

That's a good point about not over-tightening. Here are the torque specs if you don't already have them:

Tranny/Transaxle: 27 ft-lbs (need a 24 mm socket for these)
Rear diff: 36 ft-lbs
Front diff fill: 29 ft-lbs
Front diff drain: 48 ft-lbs

Just wanted to double check the front diff drain and fill hex sizes - fill 10mm; drain 12mm?

Thanks for the help.

*Edit* I have a 2000 w/ADD

Just going from memory I believe mine were both 12mm, I could be wrong though. I've got an '03 so I'm not sure about an '00. I would go to Sears or somewhere and get the socket that has the hex key welded in, it will make the job much easier.

Is there a crush washer for the front diff drain plug? I didn't see one on my 03 last time I change the gear oil. This was at 30k. The dealers changed the diff oils at 15k and could've screwed up.

I just finished changing mine and there was a washer. Btw, both fill and drain plugs are 10mm hex for my 2000.
