90 1/2 geo prizm base model with 3 speed auto. Had to change axles do to bad CV joints and leaky seals. Wanted to refill differential, but when I pulled the plug all that came out was about a pint of gear oil. I know it should have 1.5 quarts of fluid in it. The question is everyone I talk to tells me it should be ATF fluid in the rear. It was black smelly gear oil. I am the second owner of this car so I talked to the original owner who bought it new and he told me he never had any work done to the differential. Could it have come from the factory that way and should I put gear oil back in it? What weight should I use?
have the same problem?
