Question about 1989 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Trans axle I went out and started my car. Its sounds fine until you put it in gear. Then it's that awful noise. But only when its in gear. Is that the differential you talked about?

Yes. it is more common in volkeswagons. when you described the problem i had to look up and confirm what type of vehicle it was. I thought maybe I had missread the car info. check under the car it may be leaking transmission fluid. One other thing were the axles making a clicking noise when turning corners lately. it may be and axle but I truely beleave it is the differential in the trans axle. sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I realy hope I am wrong and it is just an axle.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

I have a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt. Recently during a snow storm the vehicle went through a ditch. No damage was done to the car. It was the most minute accident ever. Anyways the next day i noticed some noise...


Based on your description, I'm thinking the problem is in the transmission casing. I was thinking it was a wheel bearing, based on your description, but that is contradicted by the fact that you say it doesn't sound like it's a wheel or hub bearing.

You say that the the rf cv axle is now leaking where it goes into the trans. I'd say that's a good place to start looking.

A damaged cv axle or half shaft might make more clicking noises on a tight turn. The cv axle is greased up and has balls inside some designs.

Have you checked the transmission fluid level to see how much fluid has been lost thorugh the place where the cv axle enters the trans.? If adding fluid makes the sound lessen or go away, then the trans. is at fault, vs. the cv axle.

Good luck on this repair.

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee full time AWD. The car idles fine and I am able to select gears smoothly but I hear a grinding noise when I put it into drive. The sound continues after completely...


Without the benefit of actually getting under there and looking/listening, the best I could offer is a guess. Neither your front or rear differentials can make noise when they are not turning. However, if you see either driveshaft turning when the Jeep is in gear and standing still, I'd suspect that you either have broken gears in the center section or a broken axle.
If the noise is coming from the transmission or transfer case, you will need to find out why. Internal noises from either generally require replacement or a rebuild regardless of the original cause.

Transmission trouble. fluid looks fine. absolute


It sounds like you might have blown an axle. Especially if there has never been any transmission problems before. You said the fluid looks fine, and by that I take it to mean the fluid is clean and red, and its full. A blown axle will make the click noise, as the splines on the end of the axle are trying to mesh with the splines inside the transmission. The problem could be in the trans., but I'd pull the axles out first and check them, as axles are a lot cheaper and easier to change than a transmission.

Daughter inlaw drove car to work. Said she heard a bang and made noise. I started car and no noise until I put it in gear. Sounds like the transmission is being put into park while moving. To me it...


Hello;
From your description it sounds as though something broke internally in the transaxle. I believe all Buicks were automatics. Not really any thing to do but drop the trans oil pan and see if there is a lot of metal in the pan. If so a replacement trans axle and converter would need to be installed. Hope this helps. Rate me highly and if you have additional questions please let me know.
Thanks;

Transaxle


Either the differential or the drive axle.

Car won't move while in gear or stay still in park


You have either broken an axle or the differential is gone in the trans axle. If it is just an axle maybe 1 or 2 hundred dollars. If it is the trans axle you are looking at possibly $1000 or more. Sounds more like it is the trans axle though. Mike
