Could be over due for the differential fluid to be changed also -
unless that's what you already had done.

Yes its overdue for a change, does the differential have a drain plug
or does it have to be pumped out.

Drain plug.
Looks like the transmission drain plug, only a bit further back.
You may need a pump to get the new fluid in though - fill hole is
sorta way up in back.
Some have used a funnel from above with a long tube.
I use a pump from below.
Mine is the next "Generation" Camry and it actually calls for ATF in
the differential. Old fluid was badly degraded and discolored, even
though prior owner's reciepts showed fluid change - parts and labor.
Even noticed a bit more power after new fluid went in.

My 1994 4 cyl manual says DEXRON II. Same as transmission fluid. You might
look at the manual or sneak a peak at Haynes manual in store.
