I resently changed my standard transmission in my car and i cant get the axles to line up right. i put a 1994 ford probe transmission in the car it fits but not the axles. is there any way to convert the axles over? can this be done?
No. you need to replace the axles and drive shafts, as well as c/v joints, and possibly and wheel hubs as well... pretty much everything from the transmission to the wheels... there is no "conversion"... if you did find a way, it would just lead to problems down the road...

Remove the axle nut from the spindle, remve the spindle from the strut to allow room to remove the axle from the spindle, tap the axle out of the spindle. Once loose put a pry bar between the transmission and the axle and pry the axle out of the transmission. Might be a little hard to pry out but it will pop right out. Then to put the new one it just put it in, line it up and tap it in, be sure to torque your axle nut to the correct specifications when tightening or you will have a bad wheel bearing in no time.
OK..............There is no transmission fluid just clutch fluid. Its in a small reservoir on the firewall. I think you have a worn clutch or it needs the lines adjusted. If the clutch doesn't engage until the pedal it almost at the top then you need to adjust it or replace it. The cleaner you put in is irrelevant to your problem. There is gear oil in the transmission though but that's not the problem either. The clutch cable is easy to adjust, just loosen the lock nut and spin the cable adjuster until the pedal feels right. Hope this helps :)
ok raise the car and support the car by the BODY PINCH WELDS BEHIND THE FRONT WHEELS
remove the wheel
remove the DRIVE AXLE NUT 1 5/16 i think
remove the ball joint nut 18mm
seperate the ball joint from the steering knuckle
grab the brake caliper and pull to remove the drive axle from the hub bearing i always remove the brake flex line bracket bolt less chance of damaging the brake line
once the drive axle is out of the bearing use a pry bar and pop the other end of the shaft out of the transmission(give the pry bar a quick snap and it should pop right out
that's it remove the old shaft and install the new one and reassemble
hope this helps
If the drive axle came out of the transmission just line up the splines and gently tap it back in. They usually just snap in and pop out with a little pressure. When complete recheck the transmission fluid as you may have lost a little.
do you mean the drive shaft. if so you just need a good lever bar to prise the drive shaft out of the transmission.if you mean you want the drive shaft out of the front wheel hub then you may need a good pller to femove it as it can be very tight on the splines
First, Thank you for your service to our great nation.
Now have you spoken to the person that rebuilt the transmission, explain why you were not able to bring it back to him right away, ans see if he is willing to work with you.
If not then remove your filter check to see if there is anything that looks wrong. change the filter and replace the fluid with a good synthetic like royal purple. I hate to say this but with transmissions there is not a lot I can walk you threw, I don't even do any work on mine accept for the filter and fluid. Make sure your vacume lines going to the transmission are all in good condition, they have some control of when your transmission shifts, you could just have a bad vacume line.
Bad News, your hydraulic pump on your transmission is wearing out. The only solution is a overhaul. I have a Subaru in the same condition, if you can live with it, do it. Just in case check the transmission fluid level.
the front drive axle on one side may have not been installed all the way in to the transmission, check to see if it is loose and have some one look under front end with engine on, front end jacked up, emergency brake on and in gear to see if a axle is turning. if one is and yhe other is not put the car in park and turn\ roll the wheel that was not turning by hand if it rolls your problem is most likley to be the axle has come loose from the transmission
