You more than Likely have a Small leak in the Pan on the Bottom of the Tranny. as for the Noise in the Front, It sounds a LOT like the Wheel Bearings. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

F150 shakes while drivind why?


It could be a few things. It will shake like this if it is out of alignment, bad ball joints and or tie rods or even a u joint. This is a start for you at least. My initial guess is the alignment.

Driving 50 plus MPH, why does the front end start to shake


Hi, jack up the car and hold the front wheel. Shake back and forth, and side to side. Movement sideways indicates ball joint wear, easy replacement.

Movement back and forth = wheel bearings gone.

Check the condition of the CV boot rubbers. If split, you will need new ones and to swap the CV joint.

Check the power steering fluid, if it is low then the pump might have a leak and casue the shaking from inadequate fluid supply.

Hope this helps.

I need to now how.My stirring wheel when ever turning the front end tires makes craking noise.The fluid level is normal. Its only has 76,777 miles.Shocks on front one of the boots leak could that be the...


hi the broken gaiter/boot could be a problem normally these are full of lubricating grease as they have ball bearings in side, this is called a CV joint, or constant velocity joint, when the bearings get dry they make more of a clicking noise more than a cracking noise, but it would be advisable to get the gaiter repaired/replaced, the noise you may be hearing could be a track rod end or a ball joint, when these are worn they tend to move in directions they are not made to do, ie sideways motion, also, the spring caps can also make this noise if one of the springs have come out of their seat and as you turn one way it tries to pop back in but when you turn the other way it pops out again, you could have a friend turn the steering wheel for you to test this, best way to test this would be to just turn the wheel without the engine running so to put as much strain on the front as possible, to test if the ball joint/track rod end has worn, is to jack each side up and pull the bottom of the wheel and push the top in a shaking motion any movement will show where it is coming from track rod end or ball joint...hope this helps

Tire off rack and pinion?


Not too clear what broke...Is it the ball joint or the c/v joint on the drive axle itself. If you are mechanically inclined neither job is impossible to do. However, It's not a job i'd do on the side of the road or in someone's parking lot. Unless it was a dire emergency, with no other options. From your post, I gather that you are not too familiar with auto repair, so maybe you should consider having it done by a reliable shop. If you do the job, I suggest you get a manual and ask qustions here if you have a problem.
Good luck

How to change ball joints on 1997 2500 4x4 dodge diesel


Not hard, you'll need a special socket to get the axle nut off and getting the bearing out of the spindle is usually a real chore. Since it sounds like the spindle is already out, you might be able to do it in a press.

To get the ball joints out of the spindle, drive them out with a hammer. If you need to get the ball joint out of the axle, strike the axle next to where the ball joint taper is with a large hammer. That will usually distort the axle material enough (for a split second) to let the tappered section loose.
