Question about 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser
When I drove to work this morning, I went to exit off the highway and heard this enormous grinding in front end as I slowed down. It appears to be on passenger side. When I reached traffic light & was at a full stop, no sound is emanated. On acceleration, the noise is horrific and deccelation is beyond alarming. Even with my minor car knowlege, I knew it's not the engine but I have never heard a car make such a grinding sound. A few weeks ago, my dad asked if I was leaking any fluid since there was a large spot on his driveway but I park in a different spot almost every nigth and didn't notice anything. He said the smell was more like a heavy duty oil not motor oil but now I am wondering if I lost all fluid from axle housing or other area? ANy ideas?
Funny smell ??EP oil which is gearbox oil .heavy noise front diff area ,this is a costa packet job hope your father is mechanicaly minded and likes you enough to change diff unit for you .so take the rubbish out paint the house tidy bedroom and generally **** up so he changes it for you
