Classic symptom of dry universal joints. Once they start to pop and squeak you can't just grease them you need to replace them. You'll need to drop the driveshaft to know for sure.

Gmc safari 2001 replaced rearend because. It exploded now the oil gear is fluctuating when idle and the van is shaking while idle. Rearend. Is hot to touch and i hear popping. Noise when i cut it off


The rear end will be to hot to touch after driving but if it is really hot (like cannot get the finger anywhere near it )then the problem will be in the diff . Possible pin ion bearings are under excessive preload by nut using a new spacer under the pinion flange or attempting to remove back lash at the pinion flange by tightening up the pinion nut. Excessive oil and the wrong grade of oil ( ordinary diff oil in a LSD diff) or running one side tyre at a different profile height to the other. The popping noise may be oil burning off ( like fat in an overheated fry pan)

I just started having problems today. 2001 ford f150 . It felt like tranny was slipping. Checked fluid, a little low, topped it off. truck goes into reverse but wont move backwards. truck moves forward...


Sounds like the rear end differential is going out. I had a similar problem on a customer's truck, and it was the differential in the rearend. Replaced the rearend, and the noise was gone.

Rear end noise


You cannot check universal joints with the driveshaft under tension. Trans needs to be in neutral (wheels blocked or on jackstands)
If diff is noisy, check gears by removing cover and checking lube for metal debris, gears for "sharpening" on edges. Generally it is cheaper to replace unit with one from a scrapyard. Any work regarding bearings or gears requires precise depth and lash adjustment or the unit will quickly fail again.
Universal joint failure will cause a "clunk" when engaging reverse or drive and also can cause vibration similar to out of balance tires. Worst case is a rhythmic squeak while going about 10-20mph.

If it sounds like a rumble from back wheels it may be the rear end going out. Mine has been replaced twice with used rear end. You should be able to confirm it by looking at the rear tires both sides of tire for an oil leak or wet spot on tire or rim.

Is the rearend blown into peices? if yes replace the whole thing. If not put it in reverse and have someone look to see if the rear driveshaft is spinning. If it is you more than likely need a ring and pinion set in the rearend. If it doesn't spin the problem is in your transmission not the rearend.
