You have to replace the axle. Jack up the car, remove the wheel. Remove the axle nut. Unbolt the ball-joint from the spindle. Pull the axle from the spindle. Pop the axle out of the transmission. Reverse procedure.

Its a 1993 dodge colt vista se we shut off the engine & know it just turns over but wont start

Probably lost either spark or fuel to the engine. Try starting it with starting fluid into the intake. If nothing happens, check for spark on a spark plug wire- probably the ignition system. If it runs for a second or two with starting fluid, it is a fuel problem-check fuel pressure to see if the fuel pump is still working.

Ignition timing brown connector grounded

The previous (first answer) did not address the question at all. The question was about ignition timing. Under the hood of your Mitsubishi Mighty Max, on the passenger side (right about at the fender well area) is a single-wire terminal with a cap on it. That's the grounding terminal. With the engine warm and running, remove that cap and use a jumper wire to ground out the contact inside that terminal to some good ground on your car ... (there's probably a small ground wire nearby, against the firewall, that connects to the engine). When that terminal is grounded, it disconnects the computer (ECU) and prevents it from trying to adjust the timing. It's sort of like disconnecting a vacuum hose on an distributor to prevent vacuum from affecting the timing. NOW, with that grounding terminal grounded, do your ignition timing (I think it's 3-7 degrees BTC). When you've double checked that the timing is correct, and with the engine still running ... then disconnect your grounding wire, replace the dust cap on that terminal, and you should be good to go.

Setting the timing

No sticker on hood or rad support to tell you timing? #1 cylinder is one closest to front of engine. By front I mean where all the pulleys, belts etc are.
