Question about 1989 Plymouth Voyager

Left front drive line feels like it is locking up

I have replaced both half shafts, and motor mounts. When I drive it, it pulls to the left and wheel shimmys' Could it be in the hub assembly? or is it in the transmission? Both rotors and brake pads are new, there doesn't seem to be any play in the bearing.

buy a complete aftermarket Half Shaft drive shaft. comes pre assembled. arrange for a wheel alignment at closest shop to you .first take off center cap of side to be replaced, that gold nut there is tight but with a long breaker bar and your weight it will unscrew, even with that dent in, borrow these tools from auto store loosen 1 turn, loosen wheel lugs jack up car till tires off ground lift by frame so wheels hang, block rear tires get a coat hanger or bailing wire to hang brake caliper. remove wheel place under vehicle under door. remove entire brake caliper,i take off by allen headscrews put shoes in clean place and hang caliper then remove caliper mount with bolts on back . with a ball joint remover (the big one)$25 pop the lower ball joint of the suspension , and with a flat prybar pry the half shaft out of the side of the engine pull it from the large round part right next to the motor not the shaft ,pry some more it will slide out remove entire half shaft remove the large bolt at this time and work it off from both sides, replace oil seal where half shaft goes in at this time is just pulls out and pushes in no tools, now put the new half shaft in maybe both sides not sure how tight this model is, you will need a heavy mallet and a piece of wood to smack that shaft in the last inch, depending on which side mine was on passenger side put the wood against the shaft and smack the wood as to not damage end of shaft , when it goes in, it will, replace all screws and put that gold, new one, nut on as far as you can. fit the bottom ball screw back in its seat and tighten and replace cotter pin remount caliper frame and caliper check all bolts tighten , replace wheel on car and hand tighten lug nuts drop car down thighten wheel and tighten that gold nut tight then tighten some more with that breaker bar and your weight , stand on it a little , not all your weight, make the dent back in that of that gold nut at the keyway so it wont come off.
Rotor replacement can be done at point where half shaft has just been removed form motor. 4 screws on back side of rotor can be accessed and removed . remove entire rotor set and then separate rotor from frame. I recommend real OEM rotors and scratch them before mounting for best results , replace all shoes. you should be done and saved a 1000 dollars your welcome

Lock in your 4 wheel drive, and get under the truck, and try to manually turn the front drive-shaft. If the drive-shaft spins freely, then your 4x4 is not locking in correctly, and you may need to replace the lockers.
Good luck!

Shakes ONLY under acceleration? Goes away when you back off of the throttle? Are you sure?
Please inspect the front and both side engine mounts.The half shafts will cause that sort of a shake(whole car) when they go bad(inboard CV joints).
Aggravated OR caused my a motor mount that has shifted to one side,binding the half shaft.
Common in Chrysler mini vans!!!!!!That is why the front motor mount is adjustable.
Check the engine mount on the short half side first.

Got. A 2003 f150 4x4 got problems with 4 wheel drive locking in and stay in drive shaft turning front wheels not


Operationally vacuum shifts the front axle between 2WD and 4WD mode. The GEM ( Generic Electronics Module ) applies ground to the solenoid needed for the mode selected on the switch ( for ESOF ) or when the transfer case shift lever is moved ( MSOF ).The contact plates in the transfer case signal the GEM that the transfer case is engaged, and the Vacuum solenoids need to be activated ( either 2WD to 4WD or 4WD to 2WD ).

Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
- If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
- If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem ( this is what you seem to have, the transfer case is engaged and will drive the front shaft mine was a key on engine off test ).

- If the front drive shaft does not turn :
•With the truck running ( with front wheel back on the ground ), switch from 2WD to 4WD and back again, the vacuum shift motor should move the lever on the front axle.

-- If the vacuum shift motor does not move:
1.Check for vacuum on the lines while shifting between modes. Pink vacuum line is 2WD mode, Light Blue vacuum line is 4WD.
2.Check the fuses for the 4WD system and the solenoids.
3.Check the vacuum lines from the vacuum shift motor to the solenoids on the firewall.
sscullys_187.jpg
4.Check the vacuum lines from the solenoids to the vacuum reservoir box behind the battery.
5.Check the vacuum reservoir box for cracks.
6.Typical solution is the vacuum lines ( to the solenoids or to the vacuum shift motor ) are cracked or the vacuum shift motor has a cracked diaphragm and has water in it.
7.Could be the shift plate contacts in the transfer case are corroded / not making good contact, and not activating the solenoids.

Usually the case is cracked vacuum lines from the solenoids, the next common is a cracked vacuum reservoir box, and 1 time I have seen the mount for the vacuum disconnect motor broken ( motor floating free so it could not push against the axle )

I have a 2000 all-wheel-drive, the rear drive shaft is broken. I can't find the manual that covers Chrysler all-wheel-drive, it looks like the ABS monitor in it, and something from the transmission...


place a jack under the transmission and raise it a bit unbolt (the transmission mount) "i think thats what u mean its all i know that above the transmission holding it in place. You'll need a rachet wrench for this and a long onbe at that,, if not you can use a piece of pipe,, you'll want the extra power.. Unbolt it and lift it off,, if its still too tight jack the transmission up a bit.That providing your refering to the transmissing mounting rubber Which is all i can think you man its the only thing above the transmission. The ABS is 2 parts ,, its a mastercylinder and a booster. Its mounted on the firewall (its the thing you pour brake fluid in.) Unjack any wire or hoses by unscrewiung them and pluging them with something.. DUCT TAAPE or rescue tape works.. Unbloth both the mastercylinder and booster from the firewall... unmounting the drive shat.. well you'll see where it bolts ,, front and back.. Thats the easir part.. you will heed o happer, pull and tug the shaft until it pops out.. Hope I was helpful.. if you need more help please feel free to ask.

My 97 ford f150 4 wheel drive whont lock in to 4high fuses are good but no fire 2 dash swich can any one help?


There are issues with the 4x4 system I.w.e ends ingesting moisture/water into vacuum actuation system causing no 4x4 or ratcheting outboard I.w.e ends. (Even if you don't go 4x4'n ) pull off vacuum hoses @ I.w.e ends and check for moisture/water/rust also the I.w.e is not part of the wheel bearing itself It is the part on the axle side (inboard) of the spindle. (EVEN DEALERS CAT LISTED WRONG)Many shops just replace the wheel bearing side this may fix the symptom but not the true cause of damaged I.w.e. ! Check with a reputable dealer they should have info on this condition and repair procedure.


The integrated wheel end (IWE) system contains the following:

Vacuum reservoir
IWE solenoid
IWEs (spring loaded vacuum hubs)
Vacuum hoses
Check valve
The IWE system uses vacuum hubs that engage the front wheel hubs to the front half shafts or disengage the front wheel hubs from the front half shafts.

The IWE solenoid receives engine vacuum from the vacuum reservoir.

When the 4-wheel drive system is in 2WD mode, the 4x4 module (PCM)supplies a ground path to the IWE solenoid to apply vacuum to the integrated wheel ends (disengaging the front hubs from the front half-shafts). In 4WD mode, the 4x4 module (PCM) does not supply the ground path to the IWE solenoid, vacuum is not applied to the integrated wheel ends and an internal spring keeps the front hubs engaged to the front half-shafts.

Good luck and check the vacuum line, start with the simple. Keep me posted, be glad to get your 4wd working again.
