Just changed oil in rear differential and the amount of oil drained out not near what I put back in. Quart and a half out and three quarts back and absolutly no evidence of a leak anywhere. The owners manual tells me what oil to use but not amount. This is a 2000 yukon with 80,000 miles that i have had for about four months. Tag on the differential suggest a level to maintain- 15 to 40 mm below fill hole (not real easy to determine). So the question is... What is the fluid capacity of the rear differential?

Hmmmm, still doesn't add up but whatever it is, for sure it was low and now it is "adequate". Thanks for the info Heartbeat.

I bent a piece of wire at right angle and made one end 30 mm long and marked it at 5 mm increments and made the other end about four inches long so as not to accidently lose it into the hole
