When making a sharp turn, or u turn, the car shakes until you straighten the wheels. It seems like the 4 wheel drive doesnt release. Solution?

Hi markallenstudio,

Quite often this happens when the differential fluids requires replacement.

The correct type of fluid must be used failing which it would judder when making full turns.

Is the differential fluid change doable by a handy car owner?

Yes, the job can be done easily.

Just drain and fill.

How many differentials are there where one would change this fluid?

The front differential is incorporated into the transmission assy. The rear differential is a separate unit which is the source of grating noises when making full turns when fluid quality deteriorates.
