I had the pinion seal on my '88 T-bird replaced under warranty a few years back. 30,000 or so miles later, after getting new non-howling tires, I found out the rear end was howling almost as loud as the tires were. We checked the oil level at a service station, and couldn't find any with a finger, so we decided to add oil until it overflowed. It took 2 pounds, and the thing only holds 3.25. There was no sign of leakage, not even seepage. I took it back to Wray Ford and said I suspected somebody forgot to fill it up after fixing the seal, and the service manager said it must have evaporated. Without me smelling it.
