Does a 4 wheeler use transmission fluid?

Why does my front driveshaft spin in 2WD?
On 2WD vehicles, a single differential sits in the middle of the front or rear axles (depending on if the car is front- or rear-wheel drive). Power from the drive shaft is transferred through the differential to each wheel, causing them to turn.
What happens when a front differential fails?
If left too long or if the fluid starts to run low, the differential will become noisy and can eventually fail. If that happens, the gears can seize, locking up the rear wheels and potentially causing a lot of damage or even an accident.
How do you diagnose a bad front differential?
Here are some of the most common symptoms of a failing differential:
- Service Past Due. Like all components of your vehicle, your differential needs periodic service.
- Leaking Differential Oil.
- Strange Noises.
- Unusual Smells.
