It is called a differential. You will have to pump it out. You really need to get a haynes, chiltons, or use the search function. No offense, and I appreciate the fact that you admit to not knowing much, but seriously. You have started threads about how to pop your hood:doh0715: where your oil pan is, where your transmission is, and where your "front end axle drain" is. These are all easily learned from the first few pages of haynes or a quick search.

I get where you are coming from, but imagine that someone got onto a forum about computers and starting asking "Is this my mouse?", how do I plug it in? What is a monitor? What is the difference between software and hardware? etc. You just need to spend a little time reading, searching, and poking around. I guess there's really no harm in your threads, it's just a little silly.

Well, that is actually the point of the forum you are in, and that is why there's no harm in asking this stuff here. I think a Haynes, a cd from steve83, and few more clicks of the search button will answer almost all of your questions before you have to start a new thread.

I think I just had an idea. Go here: http://www.howstuffworks.com/
It has a lot of easy to understand information and is written in an engineer kind of way. This will help you understand what a transmission or differential or crankshaft does which will make it a lot easier to understand where it is, what it attaches to, etc. For example, I typed "dfifferential" into the search box, and here ya go!http://auto.howstuffworks.com/differential.htm

I still haven't done the drill and tap thing because I'm afraid of banging it on a rock. Do you have some kind of guard or am I just paranoid?

This is a truck forum and I would assume it's not full of liberal panzi's who are afraid of a "bad" word or some grinding shoulders.

:beer
And I would assume that you wouldn't come on to a truck forum and not expect to take a little razzing for asking questions that most 16 year old girls know the answer to.:doh0715:

I was replying to Bronco Rob.

He seems to think he can trust Google as a fully qualified reference and resource for fixing things.
It would be a great idea for you to stop posting. I and many others have tried to help you and posted lots of good resources for you. The more you post, the more ignorant you look.

You accused me of calling you an "idiot" three times. I never called you an idiot, but I'm getting close. So please stop lying or learn how to read.

I have tried to be helpful (did you have trouble reading these posts as well?)

Here's a great online resource. I went ahead and searched for your engine to make it easier for you:

As for telling the mods and admins which posts to flag or remove, you should probably learn how to open your hood before offering such sage advice.

Oh, I'm lying? What did you just write me:

Yes, you are lying. I said that you are making yourself look ignorant. You accused me of calling you an "idiot". You even used quotation marks. If you don't know the difference (Mr. Precision:rofl:) then I am not surprised that you can't figure out how to open your hood.

Please sell your Bronco. I'm sure the mechanic who has charged you $10,000 would be glad to take it off your hands for it's blue book value:histerica

What's your truck? Details? Just wondering if my $10,000 in work and upgrades will bury your ride :goodfinge
a) no, it wouldn't come close. B) if you are talking about wheeling it, the ability of the driver is more important than the truck, so I think we know how that would work out:rofl: C) You don't have 10,000 worth of upgrades, you have $2,000 worth of general maintenance that you paid $10,000 for :doh0715:

p54519,

You're probably right.

I see you are sporting an Eddie Bauer edition? Why is "Eddie Bauer" on a baby crib my wife just bought which actually broke? I'm not kidding.

Is this a quality name?

See it here:

I don't know why anyone would buy an Eddie Bauer crib, but apparently your kid is a fat ass:goodfinge
I'm pretty sure that my Bronco was built by Ford, but maybe you could read through that manual of yours just to be sure.

I put in a flush "allen" type plug in mine.
I may just do that. Like six said, you run the risk of rounding it, but anti-sieze should fix that. I never feel like I've really gotten everything out when I use the pump, and there was a little water in it last time.
