I supose you are talking about the rear axle? if so, unscrew the bolts of the rear axle's cover and let the oil flow out into a container. once it's empty, clean the cover and the surface on the axle where the cover goes on to, apply a seal onto the cover and put the cover back on and screw al of the bolts back into place and tighten them. you will find a rubber plug in the cover, take it out and fill the rear axle untill the liquid comes out of the plughole. Put the rubber plug in and you're done! Watch out if you got al limited slip differential, you will need to put an additive into the oil so you won't burn the clutches of you limited slip differential.

I took my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi to a mechanic that works from a garage at his home, recommended by a friend of mine. He removed and cleaned the throttle body and sensor(s?), then reinstalled them, and then disconnected both battery cables and held them together for 2 minutes so that the engine controller could reboot with the factory default settings, then reconnected them. I had bought a can of throttle body cleaner on my way over to his house for about $3.00. He charged me $40.00 for the job. This was done mid-February, about 10 weeks and 2500 miles ago. So far, the problem Has Not happened again, the truck has been running great!

the cabin air filter is located on the passenger side of the cowl. after opening the hood, remove the windshield wipers and the black covering ( 2 small T-30 screws, and a few body grommets). after you remove the cowl there will be a grey accordion looking filter in the cowl, remove that and replace with the new filter.

I had the same problem,there's a group of wires on a harness below the steering wheel, big blue one and red and pink, and about 8 other little ones, anyways the big red wire and the medium size red wires are for the heater motor, clean the terminals and plug back in and good as new

It's a map/tps sensor correlation code, essentially it means the map sensor reading isn't what's expected with the tps reading and vice versa! It sounds like your tps sensor is probably bad or the circuit to one of those 2 sensors.

Hope helps (remember rated this).

Maybe!!!! Wire taps are not a good thing. But yes I do them also... Kinda a catch 22! But the bad thing about wire taps are that they carode the exposed wires. Recheck the conections where you made the connection. If it breaks contact then the locks might not work. Or if the conection at that point is grounding out and blowing your relay or fuse. But if your tailgate lock still operated when all others did not then chances are that one of the door switches is bad. after you recheck your wires, disconnect the battery for about 10 to 15 minutes. If it is the relay then that should let it cool off and reset itself long enough to work or atleast hear a click out of the locks when you power up again. LISTEN CLOSELY FOR THE CLICK. Have someone inside of the car and up by the front of the car and this will increase the chance to hear it. You do not need the key on for the test because the locks have power all of the time. Good luck and let me know.

Check the speed sensor on the top of the differential. It's the one that the ABS and the speedometer uses.

You need to have the body control module scanned, it is the control for this and most other body electrical; functions. It requires a specialized scanned.

Sounds like it either had trash in it or you dropped something in it before you reinstalled the throttle body! If it was trash it could have been blown out with an air compressor. Could also be a broken piston ring that came out on top of the piston upon startup!
