Ujoints connect these things together. I repaired my driveshaft in a 93 f150 and it helped noise and throttle. What are you experiencing?

SOURCE: Dodge Caravan, 2001, CV joints have 1/4" longitudinal play/noise

CV Joint Axle Replacement - How to Repair or Replace

Over time the rubber boots of the CV joints can become cracked, torn, or otherwise compromised. Once moisture and dirt get into a CV joint and grease makes its way out, the CV joints days are numbered. Signs of impending failures are a click-click-clicking or metallic crackling noise while turning and accelerating or a clunking upon deceleration. While one can repack, reboot, and rebuild CV axles, it makes more sense for the average do-it-yourselfer to procure replacement units and swap out the old axles. If a boot is torn or missing, it is possible to save the joint if caught early enough, but usually the damage has already been done. Replacing or servicing the entire CV joint axle assembly may be the smarter move since replacing a boot may involve removing an axle, which may also involve removing half or all of the vehicle's brakes and suspension.

SOURCE: broken front cv joint 1997 doge dakota

this depends on what type of joins you have because if you pull the join out of the transmission or transfer case inside there is a gear that run from one side to the other and if this gears has no place to relax it will fall down causing major problems this is why mechanics at the shop they do replace one side first and then the other to keep this gear in place and if you have the cv joins that are connected to the transfer case with 4 bolts on each side of the transfer case then yes you can take then out

If cv joint is bad car has a lot of vibration, boots arent torn or leaking, but makes a humming noise. is this cv joint or something else?


cv joints should not click as that is the first indication of a failed unit
( going slow and changing direction produces a click,click is a cv joint)
wheel bearings should not be tight as that will produce a humming noise and will result in early failure
because the axle turns with the change of direction ,the distance from the pivot point to the transmission changes and so the shaft will move in and out of the transmission to compensate
take it to an accredited drive line specialist for a diagnosis

Every time I put it in drive most of the time it makes a clunk noise then when your slowly moving forward or backwards somewhere in the rear diff makes a bad clunking noise but once you take off and...


sounds like your u-joints on your drive shaft .
to test it jack up the rear end off the ground place jack stands on the frame for safety.
in park with car or truck off..
twist the drive shaft by hand and look for play if none than push and pull up and down and look for play.
there should be no play at all even a very little is a bad u joint..,


now if you have a lot of lash when you twist the shaft (over a half a turn ) now you have bigger problems

Ml270 with clicking noise on take off and when driving. I suspect uni joints on front section of tail shaft ,do I just remove bolts at front joint and will anything ( like a spring ) fly out. Hope you can...


No, there should be no springs or anything like that. Just unbolt it to remove, but first match mark everything up to go back in the exact same position. as best as you can get it. Sometimes the drive shafts are "fine tuned" for balance at the factory as a last step during assembly. But you need to take it off and rotate it around. If that was what was clicking, the looseness in the joint should be very apparent.

Vibration and banging noise in front end right in fornt of center console on the floor board I think its the u joints? But I have to get two guys to believe me on this. The banging noise is only when...


Sounds like U-joint. Also check front driveline shaft on 4x4, sympathetic motion can sometimes turn shaft when not in 4x4 mode.

With play in U-joint, joint slips to one side as Torque pushes against flange to turn driveshaft. Basically U-joint is cocked and shaft is not running true to center plane.

Also worth checking are front c-v joints if 4x4 vehicle. Pretty much the same problem can exist with these small joints as with the big joints on your driveshaft.

The last areas are the motor mounts and transmission mounts. These can cause the same problems you describe. And remember that sound transmits differently through metal.

Squealing noise while driving


Did you check the rest of the U-joints. If you have a hanger bearing, you should have a 2 piece drive shaft and thus 3 more U-joints that could be bad.

Jeep grand Cherokee transmission tail shaft


is that joint right there a U-joint or CV? Anywho check for play at that joint, There may be a little at the slip yoke, where the tailshaft comes out of the transfer-case , but nowhere else should have any. If those joints are loose: replace U-joint While your under there you might as well check the front drive-shaft also.

How would i know if my cv joint is going bad on my 94 ford ranger 2 wheel drive


A two wheel drive ranger does not have any c.v. Joints. It does have u joints in the rear drive shaft. Worn out u joints can cause vibrations at highway speeds, squeezing noises at low speeds, and in some cases a clunking noise when the transmiissin is placed in park or drive. You can check them by pulling the drive shaft and ratting the joint. If it is stiff or loose than they are likely bad. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

1999 Buick regal. Thumping noise on sharp right turns. Had ball joints and tie rods replaced. Now what?


Check your cv shaft for play or broke cv boot. It could be the grease is gone and the joint is making noise or the wheel bearing hub could also be bad.

Steering system knocks and makes noise at low speed turning. Is it a maintenance thing ?


Hi, check your drive axle CV joints. If the boots are torn, the joints are usually bad. A worn out CV joint will pop when you make a tight turn. If a CV joint is bad, I recommend replacing the whole axle, as the labor is much less than replacing just the joint. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Tranny makes noise in 1st gear then goes away in 2nd gear


It could be the U joints in your drive shaft. If there is no problem to the transmission as to it's performance other then the squeaking noise in revers or slow speeds. Most likely it's going to be the U joint, the factory U joints don't have grease fitting and only have a life time of service.
The u joints may have reached it's life time and need to be replaced. You have two of them and most of the time it's just one that goe's bad, but changed them both since the drive shaft needs to be removed from the truck.
Good luck and hope this helps.
