Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Hello, I recently replaced the rear driveshaft on my stampede to be VxL 4 x 4.. I am pretty sure I installed them correctly however when I go to operate the vehicle I'm getting just the sound from the motor. The battery is good the ESC is good it's operating with the greenlight I just cannot get the wheels to turn. The motor sounds good too. What do you recommend for a fix so long story short the stampede is not moving

SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds

You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.

SOURCE: rubbing sound when turning right

Sounds like maybe just rust on outside edge of rotors is touching on spindle slightly. Try removing wheel, and check rotors for rusty outside edge. Take a hammer with safety glasses on, and tap corner of outside edges of both front & backside of rotors to remove that rusty edge. See if noise is gone after. Inspect your brakes while your at it for worn pads.

SOURCE: 2000 monte carlo / noise from rear wheels

That's what it sounds like to me also. I would put the rear up on jack stands and spin the wheels to male shure wich side it is. Don't forget to block the front wheels for safety as you will not be able to set your e- brake for this test.

I recently changed rear drive shafts to aluminum on my stampede 4 x 4 vxl , and now the tires do not move at all when I throttle. I just hear the motor

As aluminium has not torque value but will simply twist or rip the splines off the end ,I would be checking for shaft damage first as the problem started after what you did.

1. Remove the rear wiper arm 2. Remove the wiper driveshaft nut( nut behind wiper arm) and the washer and seal from the driveshaft 3. Remove liftgate trim pannel 4. Dissconect electrical conn and retaining screws from the motor. Reverse to install. But my advice is put the motor in but leave arm off, run the wiper motor to make sure it is working and to make sure it is at its resting spot. Then put the arm back on.

How do i replace a driveshaft for a 1997 lincon cotanental

I searched under 1997 lincoln continental and found this: Driveshaft and U-Joints
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Town Car and Mark VII-VIII Fig. 1: The bolts retaining the rear driveshaft yoke-to-differential flange require a 12mm, 12 point wrench or socket to loosen them 91197p12.jpg
Fig. 2: Remove the bolts retaining the rear driveshaft yoke-to-differential flange 91197p11.jpg
Fig. 3: Separate the driveshaft from the axle flange and . . . 91197p13.jpg
Fig. 4: . . . disengage the driveshaft from the transmission output shaft 91197p14.jpg
Fig. 5: Insert a plug onto the splines of the transmission output shaft to prevent fluid from leaking out 91197p15.jpg
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Mark the position of the driveshaft yoke on the axle companion flange so they can be reassembled in the same way to maintain balance.
  3. Remove the flange bolts and disconnect the driveshaft from the axle companion flange.
  4. Allow the rear of the driveshaft to drop down slightly.
  5. Pull the driveshaft and slip yoke rearward until the yoke just clears the transmission extension housing seal. Mark the position of the slip yoke in relation to the transmission output shaft, then remove the driveshaft.
  6. Plug the transmission to prevent fluid leakage. To install:
  7. Lubricate the yoke splines with suitable grease.
  8. Remove the plug from the transmission and inspect the extension housing seal; replace if necessary.
  9. Align the slip yoke and output shaft with the marks made at removal and install the yoke into the transmission extension housing. Be careful not to bottom the slip yoke hard against the transmission seal.
  10. Rotate the axle flange, as necessary, to align the marks made during removal.
  11. Install the driveshaft yoke to the axle flange. Install the bolts and tighten to 71–95 ft. lbs. (95–130 Nm).
  12. Lower the vehicle.

On my 2005 mustang gt the rear dif has a leak where the driveshaft connects to it. What do I do?

There's a seal there called a pinion seal that will need to be replaced. Take the driveshaft loose from the rear end. You will then see a large nut, probably 1" or larger. You will need to remove this with an air impact wrench. The nut is so tight that you would not be able to get it off by hand. Then the flange comes off that the driveshaft was bolted to, and there you will see the seal that needs replacing. It can be removed with a small hammer and a screwdriver. Put some grease on the new one and carefully hammer it in, being sure to keep it straight. It will fight you, but keep after it. Once you get it started, it will go the rest of the way pretty easily. Then reverse the process, being sure to get the big nut real tight.

How do i remove the drive shaft out o my 66 fairlane

Once you're under the car, Remember be safe, use jack stands, etc, You should have 4 bolts that connect the driveshaft to the yoke of the rear end. These will probably be really tight, you may need a cheater bar to break them loose. Once the rear of the drive shaft drops down then you should be able to pull the driveshaft straight back, toward the rear and it should drop out of the rear of the transmission. You may have some tranny fluid leaking out. While doing this you want to handle the Ujoints carefully so that you don't allow the caps to fall off, losing some of the needle bearings, unless you're going to replace the Ujoints.On that age of car, the driveshaft might be in there pretty tight so you may have to use some force, be careful. Good luck.

Rear differential driveshaft seal leak.

Hello,you need to remove driveshaft to be able to get to the nut.Remove the nut (MAY BE VERY TIGHT) and pull the yoke or flange as you called it out & you can pop old seal out & new seal in.You may want to smear a tiny bit of grease or vasoline on outside of seal for easier installation & also on the rubber part of seal so itwon't get damaged when you re-install the yoke.Hope this helps.
