Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Outlander
Where the pro shaft connects to the rear axle the mounting has come loose and oil has sprayed over the underside of the car. The car is making horrible noises at low speed. Is the rear diff broken?
I would try adding a lifter quiet supstance such as nulon lifter quiet, may or may not be available in your country,
Or try heading to a local auto store and look for a reputable brand name products, ie injector clean/ carby clean /lifter quiet/worn engine treatment.
Below i have listed common problems related to yours that might be worth checking.
Sometimes the oil that you may of put in may not be thick enough hence why youre getting more noise.
it could mean yes that a lifter or shim is loose and needs adjustment,
injector noise from fuel injectors if they get clogged up they tick loudly.
Dirty fuel causing injector noise
Low oil or incorrect oil level as in over full.
Incorrect oil specification/ wrong Viscosity or grade.
Leak or low oil presssure could be a blockage somewhere stopping oil circulating
Worn oil pump not correctly pumping enough oil.
Oil line blockage insufficent oil getting up to the lifters
It coudl even be driveline related as in a C.V. joint coudl be loose/worn and ticking.
Ive even seen cars where wire has been entwined aroudn the driveshaft and taps against the floor/wall
Coudl be a fan if your fan runs off the engine rather then electric ticking against the houseing or it could also be a belt or bearing in one of you accesories ie a bearing in the aircondition clutch tha tmay be loose and is ticking.
However start small and go from the cheapest option up to the dearest.
Make sure you have a good listen while its running with the bonnet up and go through to try and find the source of the sound.
Usually this is what the mechanics would- do anyway untill they find the problem.
Hoipefully this helps so you dont have to take it to the shop.

Dear Brake Drum Remover,
I'm gonna tell you how to pull this drum off, ya ready?First off, get the rear of the vehicle up in the air safely, Then pull the rear tires off.After those are off then take a gander at the face of the drums, are there shiny brass looking screws installed on the face of that drum?Ifso remove those counterclockwise, then, take a hammer a shock the face off the drum firmly about three times.Now, go to the opposite side on the face of the drum and do that again, keep on doin that until you can wiggle the drum off by hand...easy as that, any other questions get back to me. I'M HERE TO HELP!!!

That is somewhat true. You can disconnect the driveshaft and index it(rotating it 180 degrees) and then reconnecting it. Then test drive-if the problem is gone then there you go. I cant promise that is it-but I have seen it on quite a few monteros.
