FLUID LEVEL CHECK
See Figure 1
The axle shaft universal joints are located in the steering knuckle and are bathed in oil as they turn. To check the fluid level in the steering knuckle, remove the filler plug from the inside of the knuckle. The fluid should be at the level of the hole. If it is not, replenish the supply. Examine the knuckle for leaks if the level is abnormally low. A leak should be readily visible.
