Cv joins - knocking

If they're a knockin, they won't last long. Time for an axle replacement. You can get re-built axles for this car, less expensive and easy to replace. You DON'T want them to break while you are driving!! DANGER!!

How many spints for the inner outer cv joints for mazda 626 sedan 1999 model 2.0 litres

CV joints should be packed with moly grease.
Less than 1/2 pint for both in total I would think. 500ml tub should be ok.
Normal grease can be used if you run out.

Had the auto- trans rebuilt in my 01 626 4 cyl. mazda, now it has a bad vibration no one can find the problem, I'm thinking tourqe convert. but I have never removed a front wheel drive trans. Need info on...

Having years ago,owned a trans repair business,I will tell
you, that you don't want to consider removing any trans axle
in your driveway. You need a lift

I would go to a trans only repair shop and get involved
I my shop we took the customer into the shop and educated
them and were honest. So,make sure your in there and involved
and they can prove what your issues are.
They love rebuilding them,that is what they do
You need a solution to your issues

I would suspect engine misfires etc,motor and transaxle mounts,
bad drive axle joints

What happens when cv joints go bad in a 2000 mazda 626?

Welcome to Fixya

Thank you for bringing this up to our attention. Bad CV joints are not safe to drive. The joint could fall apart and/or lock up maybe causing a wreck. The joints are on the drive axles. It could even damage the transmission. I highly recommend to replace them right away to avoid accident.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Just purchased a 2002 mazda 626 4 cyl automatic. they said the trany is pouring out trany fluid after you drive it and it sits over night. big puddle in the morning. i have been now reading online that...

I would fix that one because it would be a big hassle to change over, You would have to change cv joints install shifter and cables. I haven't seen to many 626 with trans leaks but It would be worth it to fix.

I had my cv joints changed out and now my knocking sound is worse

Is the knocking only on turns from the front and it is a fast continual knocking?
If the installation was correct.......sounds like the CV joints are possibly defective.
When changing CV joints.......always put in complete shaft assemblies that use NEW joints....not rebuilt joints.The price is almost the same.
