Thank you for your first rate answer to my resetting my engine oil life display.
Can I ask the reason for a noisy whine from front and back differentials – oil was changed recently and made little difference to noise.
What are reasons for noisy differentials. Oil change made little difference in 2007 Saab 9-7x 5.3i 166900 km
