Drive shaft does not turn on my 1971 torino


when the rear is jacked up is it the wheels that turn only with no drive shaft movement. does the drive shaft turn when the rear wheels are off the ground. Does the drive shaft turn when you have it in neutral with you foot on the clutch and the rear wheels off the ground
The purpose of the questions is to establish whether the pinion and crown wheel in the diff are seized or if the main shaft and clutch shaft in the gear box are seized.

I hear a whine when i take my foot off the gas. The faster i go the louder the noise is when i remove my foot.


If you have a turbo that could be it, usually around 40 mph it's noticeable. Driveline, gearbox and differential can also produce a whine. Put it in neutral and coast, listen for any variations. Clutch in, clutch out...after you pinpoint the area it's coming from it will be easier to troubleshoot.
Hope this helps,

98 ford mustang shift stick started making a clanking sound yesterday when backing up


If it makes a clanking sound when you switch from neutral to drive or neural to reverse than i would say you have a u-joint issue. If it you get noise when you accelerate and coast then your rear differential is out of alignment

Have a 2004 Avalanche 1500 that has rear end noise that get louder turning to the right and goes away turning to left. Also upon excelatation noise not so loud coasting noise get louder have checked rear...


Suspect a worn left side spider gear or it's bearing in the differential. If a limited-slip differential, the left side clutch may be grabbing somewhat. In any case, the differential will need to be removed from the case to service any worn or defective components. Rear end service is not for inexperienced mechanics. Have you checked the fluid level in the differential? Hope this helps!

1997 ford expediton two problems 1. is when coasting to a stop or just rolling slow a clicking noise coming from rearend area I first thought u-joint but checked that then wheel bearing checked that it...


If you use the Emergency brake more when you park a trailer, then both the clicking and the wheel bearing noise is due to the Emergency brake. The linings in the E brake are drum type and are inside the rear rotor. They will accumulate rust and make noise.

The rear pinion bearing in the differential can make a noise under load. This noise will go away if you are coasting in DRIVE, or put trans into NEUTRAL while moving. Pulling a load puts more strain on the bearing.

The heater problem can be several things. Usually an electric or vacuum "door" under the dash. A low water level after warmup. Or a bad thermostat will stick to begin with and then open too much causing a temperature drop. After the truck is warmed up, feel the heater hoses and see if they are both hot. If they are both hot, then its a "door" problem under the dash.

My 2004 Mercury Mountaineer will go into gear but will not move. What could be the problem


Your rear emergency brakes could be hung up. Especially if a parking valet or someone else parked it recently.

You need to jack up both rear wheels and then put your car into neutral with the motor OFF. If the rear wheels can not be manually turned it is either the emergency brakes, the differential or the transmission.

The emergency brakes require removing the back tires and rotors. If it is still locked, then it is either the differential or the trans. The driveshaft connects the trans to the differential so remove the driveshaft. If the differential turns without the driveshaft, then the trans is locked up. If the differential does not turn the problem is inside the differential.

My 2005 Honda odyssey with 96k miles whines when in drive and under load. When coasting the noise goes away. It is not there in neutral. The noise increases in pitch with speed


Sounds like differential or differential bearings as it happens under load,if it was just wheel bearings it would do it rolling down a hill even with the engine switched off, it needs to be driven by an experienced mechanic to diagnose the noise but thats probably it
