This could be a long one; not sure yet. Couple of weeks ago I was in my driveway going around a corner and it felt like the rear end was locked up, not slipping a bit. I got out checked the fluid( it was thick as gum) backed up a little bit pulled forward a couple of times and it seemed to unlock. I was thinking that I should really pull the cover and take a look but we were moving, getting married and going on a honeymoon, it slipped my mind. Today I'm driving home from work and notice a whining sound seemed to be coming from the rear end. I stopped by the auto parts store to pick up some spark plugs on my way and the whine wasn't as loud when I got back in. I decided it was definatly time to take the cover off and take a look when I got home. But just before I got there I was driving up a hill from a stop and 90 degree left, and the rear end made some aufull clunking sounds and then stopped. I was only 1/4 mile from my house so I kept going and parked it. I removed the cover finally to find dripping water and sludge, kind of light brown, no metal shavings. Are you supposed to be able to scrape it out with a screwdriver? I'm rambling, fuel injection went south on the Honda day before yesterday; don't really know how I'll get to work tomorrow so beer sounded like the way to go. I don't think my profile has the specs on my rear, pretty sure it's stock with the gov lock behind a built 454 and turbo 350. I'm new to K5's but that doesn't seem like a good combo to me. I was planning to replace the rear just not so soon, guess some suggestions would be great. That was a little long.
