SOURCE: Car Rumbles, CV Joint?

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

SOURCE: CV joints are bad

If your CV outboard joints have open boots and are out of lube and full of dirt they can be cleaned,inspected and reused. If the balls are in good shape and the races look good, then you can save the old joints.Make sure that everything is cleaned and use as much lube as you can get inside the boot before you close it up. Good luck. Moe Rate if this helps. If you need more info , post and I will get back.

SOURCE: CV Joints

You will usually hear a real loud clicking sound when your turning at a tight radius in either direction. Check the rubber boots over the joints. If they are cracked or ripped off you will need to replace them.There will be 2 on each side. If they are real noisy just replace the entire half-shafts. Shop around for axle shaft assy prices, typically $100.00 - $300.00 each side.

well now,,,il tell you a storie,,,better sit down?
the cv joints are the joints in a drive train that for use of a better word "bend the drive shaft" so it dont brake when you turn a corner,,,ie:parking! inside the cv joint is held on the drive shaft be some splines in the drive shaft and a spring clip holds it all together there is an "inner bell" it has normaly 5 slots in it that have big "ball bearings" in them that slid around up and down these slots on the out side of the cv joint is the outer "bell" this also has slots that the ball bearings fit into so the drive trough the cv is compleat,,,when you turn the wheels the cv joints slids round on these ball bearings twisting round but the drive from the engine is still transmited to the road wheeles trough the cv
when this cv joint starts to were out the ball bearings are pitted and not ball shaped any more and the slots they run in are not smooth that to gets pitted what happens is the cv starts to "crack" under load,,,and vibrate when turning or being driven you drive down the road at 50 mph and the car feels like its driving over stones in the road its vidrating off the cv joint then when you turn the wheel on full lock to pull away you here a very big cracking or clicking sound, like,,,,,click click click, and the more power you put on the more they click very soon people start turning around and look at you? oh yes they here it to!
the vibration that comes off the cv will reck the transmission becouse of the wipping of the drive shafts,,,, to test your cv joints to see if there good or bad one's put the car on full lock and pull away,, if there is a cracking sound or a klicking sound there shot away and you need new ones fitted

How do you know when your cv joints are bad.


The main but not only symptom is that as you go round corners you will hear clicking noises, the harder the lock the more clicky.
Are the cv rubber boots intact? If they split dirt gets in grease leaks out and they can get ruined so fix a boot as quickly as possible.

Bad cv joint symptoms noise


Need more info. CV joints when they go bad make a noise when turning. Sound like a crunching sound. Easy way to check is to simple part the car, turn the wheel all the way to one side and look at the boots. If they have a tear or show signs of leaking, you could have a bad one.

Stutter in front wheels when turning.


Sounds like your CV Joints are bad. First physical clue to look for is while the car is parked turn the steering wheel all the way right or left and look at the pivot point where front wheel turns at. If the boot is damaged and grease thrown all over underside of car (near CV Joint) See link it will show both a good boot and a torn one with grease.

What are the symptoms of a bad CV joint on an all wheel drive Volvo


if your cv joint is going bad check the rubber boot located on your front axel if there is a tear in the boot once dirt gets inside the boot depending on how long youve had the noise the cv joint will have to be replaced sometimes the first signs are a clicking noise when turning coming from the cv joint if you catch it early you may get away with just replacing the boot there are two ways of doing this depending on the vehical one is to buy split boot it wraps around the axel and is held together with tiny bolts and nuts the axel doesant have to be removed useing this type you still have to remove the damaged boot and clean the cv joint thoroughly i suggest useing brake parts cleaner be carefull not to get it on any rubber parts or lines then before installing the new boot pack the joint with grease and the boot the other way the old joint must be removed you will have to remove the complete axel assemble the new joint and axel will come as one unit depending on the vehical your balljoint or joints may have to be removed also this method to me is the prefferd way this will assure all is new its more involved but better in the long run

Hello, so I'm trying to better understand failing cv joints and how it can affect front differential on a front drive SUV. I read an article that when cv joints go bad it can affect the front differential...


First I think you read it wrong ,that Front WD suv have locking dif..they don't , it locks at the transfer case at the tranny and only on All Wheel Drive SUVs. And then it only transfer more power from back wheels to front wheel. The dif are open dif. means the power goes to the wheels with least resistance or limited slip dif. that transfers power to slower turning wheel. Yes max. load is at full lock and high speeds and yes it does damage over time (wear out), less at lower speeds. The symptoms of a failing cv is knocking while turning.

I just asked this question a minute ago but I want to clarify a little more. Got a buddy of mine who is having a car issue and was hoping you guys could help out. We are wondering if bad CV joints can lead...


Much of the symptoms you describe sound like a CV joint. I would take it to the dealer and insist that it be fixed... What is bothering me though is under normal operating conditions, CV joints and boots are engineered to last upwards of 150,000 miles. Some go the distance, but a lot reach the end of the road far short of their design life. According to one major aftermarket supplier of replacement axle shafts, CV joint shafts are typically being replaced at anywhere from 70,000 miles to 130,000 miles.

Read this and see if you agree...
SYMPTOMS OF CV JOINT FAILURE
Bad boots are not the only thing you need to look for. You also need to listen for noise or complaints that might indicate a CV joint problem. These include:

  • Popping or clicking noises when turning. This almost always indicates a worn or damaged outer CV joint. To verify this condition, place the vehicle in reverse, crank the steering wheel to one side and drive the vehicle backwards in a circle (check the rearview mirror first!). If the noise gets louder, it confirms the diagnosis and the need for a new CV joint or replacement shaft assembly.
  • A "clunk" when accelerating, decelerating or when putting the transaxle into drive. The noise comes from excessive play in the inner joint on FWD applications, either inner or outer joints in a RWD independent suspension, or from the driveshaft CV joints or U-joint in a RWD or AWD powertrain. The same kind of noise can also be produced by excessive backlash in differential gears. To verify the condition, back the vehicle up, alternately accelerating and decelerating while in reverse. If the clunk or shudder is more pronounced, it confirms a bad inner joint.
  • A humming or growling noise. Sometimes due to inadequate lubrication in either the inner or outer CV joint, this symptom is more often due to worn or damaged wheel bearings, a bad intermediate shaft bearing on equal length halfshaft transaxles, or due to worn shaft bearings within the transaxle.
  • A shudder or vibration when accelerating. May be caused by play in the inboard or outboard joints, but the most likely cause is a worn inboard plunge joint. Similar vibrations can also be caused by a bad intermediate shaft bearing on transaxles with equal length halfshafts, or by bad motor mounts on FWD vehicles with transverse-mounted engines.
  • A vibration that increases with speed. This symptom is rarely caused by a failing CV joint. An out-of-balance tire or wheel, an out-of-round tire or wheel, or a bent rim are the more likely causes.
