    How often should the rear differential fluid need to be changed?

    Smart.
    I usually do all fluids every 30k.
    ...even the trans-axle.

    The Owners manual says to check every 40k

    It also says you should add fluid if necessary but replacing the old fluid is not required. You would only need to replace the fluid if it becomes contaminated.

    Is it an Allen wrench that you use to take out the plug? What size?
