    I think this is a limited slip diff and wondering if it could be something as simple as reqiring an additive or ?? I did check the fluid level and find it is fine and appears normal in color, smell and consistency.
    Thanks,
    Martin

    Hello:
    No, I haven't had a chance to pull the cover off to have a look at it yet, or to see if there are any significant filings in the housing.

    likely either an axle or carrier bearing that's going away.

There had been a glitch in the system when you last answered. By now likely the problem would be much worse if it were a bearing or even a gear...there is an additive for posis. add it as per instructions and make a series of tight left and right turns in a parking lot to separate the posi plates. If they aren't fused, that should have some effect.

1997 dodge ram pu 4x4, when I turn corners or start moving I hear a grinding noise coming from the rear end area. Any idea what would cause this and estimated repair?


most common cause is rear pads sticking (rust) and when you move, it has to break the rust from the rotor,hence the grinding noise.as long as it only does it when you start moving or turn first thing do not worry.....

Vibration in 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 (YES, this is a double post)


Could be u-joints. My wife's Pathfinder developed a vibration at highway speeds. A little research revealed the front driveshaft u-joints bearings would begin to fail causing some play. Took it in to have them inspected and sure enough- the little needle bearings were grinding down to dust. Replaced with greesable units and vibration is gone.
Certainly worth checking out.

Honda accord exr 1987 automatic trans.


It's hard to understand when you say it feels like a manual shift. Noise? Feel? I do know that the 87 auto trans does have a weak 1st to 2nd shift drum (as explained to me by my mechanic) that makes a grinding, elongated shift under heavy acceleration when it starts to wear. Under normal acceleration, 1st to 2nd shifts were normal (crisp, immediate). Since that day 8 years ago, I've avoided starting off to quickly, and so far have saved myself a tranny overhaul.
