Hey y'all,
I noticed some fluid below my car the other day (not one hundred % sure it was from my car but denial is always lingering when issues occur) It was from the back of the car. Checked the trans fluid, which is fine. Car still seems to run okay except I notice it is shifting harder, shudders to a stop, and has a sound like loos change coming from the rear (only audible outside the car when running, even if its in park) Any ideas and are the two related. I guess my question is would my vaccum be affected by loosing differential fluid. Or has anyone had similar issues. Thanks in advance.

Fluid Chex

JG,
Thanks for the info on changing/checking the diff fluid. Any idea if this would affect the vacuum throughout the car? It just seems too coincidental both things happened at the same time after 15k trouble free miles. Thanks again.

Euro difference

Appreciate it John Gregg!
Well After purchasing the mityvac I've found or believe I've found both right doors to have bad servos, a bad line and the fuel shutoff servo to be bad. As you are the poster I most commonly see with a Euro(I think you have an 83 non Turbo), I think you may answer what I hope is the final question for awhile. Can I use standard 84 300TD Vac parts in my 84 300D Euro? All the sites I visit have nothing available for Euro models. I can order them through the dealer but is there really a difference. If so where can I get parts for this car???

Again thanks.
