Question about 1992 Buick LeSabre
My car rumbles at speeds greater than 60. I just found that when the road turns slightly left it rumbles more. Sounds like CV joint, don't you think? So I've got questions. How do I confirm a bad CV joint? Can I lubricate it? Are you supposed to lubricate them periodically? Can a back yard mechanic change them easily enough?
No you cant grease a cv joint, it is a sealed unit and comes pre greased! when you turn sharp at slow speeds does it sound like rocks rolling around in a coffee ca? then its a cv axle! also check large boots at both end of each axle. if the boot is torn the cv axle is either bad or will need replaced very soon! yes a back yard mech can replace easily but you will need a front end alignment when you are done! hints for replaceing! pop axle out with a pry bar at trasmission., to put back it use old end nut only 1/4 of the way on and hit with a hammer to seat lock ring then check at tranny to make sure it is seate! hope this helps
