How do I tell if the half shafts need to replaced?

I have an automatic transmission. There is an intermittent noise coming from the front drive train but can't quite figure where it's coming from. I think that one of the half shafts needs to be replaced. I need to know how do you tell if they need to be replaced.

What is causing noise in front? It seems to be a pulsing shudder as you drive. does not appear to be brakes related. any thoughts? Drive train?


It maybe your idler arms. When was the last time you had a wheel alignment? I would take it in for an alignment diagnosis. Describe what you stated and have idler arms checked.

All wheel drive box grinds when you have it in gear


If it happens when accelerating that is when the pinion bearing ( the bearing next to the crown wheel on the pinion )is under the most load. Check the magnetic drain plug for metal flakes. Check the condition of the front drive shaft spline as it may be generating the noise there and sending it to the diff.

Loud popping noise coming front passenger side of


Most likely cause of loud popping noise would be a broken or breaking cv shaft. The cv drive shafts have a rubber boot around the bearings on the shaft. Look for a broken rubber boot on the shaft that runs from the transmission housing to the wheel hub area of front wheel. If you find a broken or cracked boot then most likley the **** needs to be replaced to solve your problem.

1999 Subaru Forester has developed a shake when accelerating, esp. between 20-30 mph. Wheel bearings replaced - didn't help. Tires checked, balanced, etc. - didn't help. Front end allignment - didn't help....


Auto or 5-speed?
Subarus have CV axles in front and back. And a drive shaft from the center differential of the transmission to the back differential.

Yes, it could be the drive shaft or axle. If you turn the car hard left or right do you hear any noises - usually a 'clicking' sound? This is likely a CV axle in front.

Check the fluid in the transmission (Automatic) (info is in the Owner's Manual) to make sure it's full and/or gear oil in the front differential.

If it's an Automatic transmission, the fluid may need changed - NOT FLUSHED - if it has more than 30K miles since last changed.

Garage told me problem could be the drive train. What exactly is the drive train?


The drive train is what "Drives" the vehicle literally, and it consists of the engine, the transmission, the drive shaft, (if rear wheel or 4 wheel drive) and the front/rear axle. (Depending on front wheel drive, rear wheel drive, or 4 wheel drive)

It would sound like that garage is basically telling you that you need a new vehicle.

I have a 2000 all-wheel-drive, the rear drive shaft is broken. I can't find the manual that covers Chrysler all-wheel-drive, it looks like the ABS monitor in it, and something from the transmission...


place a jack under the transmission and raise it a bit unbolt (the transmission mount) "i think thats what u mean its all i know that above the transmission holding it in place. You'll need a rachet wrench for this and a long onbe at that,, if not you can use a piece of pipe,, you'll want the extra power.. Unbolt it and lift it off,, if its still too tight jack the transmission up a bit.That providing your refering to the transmissing mounting rubber Which is all i can think you man its the only thing above the transmission. The ABS is 2 parts ,, its a mastercylinder and a booster. Its mounted on the firewall (its the thing you pour brake fluid in.) Unjack any wire or hoses by unscrewiung them and pluging them with something.. DUCT TAAPE or rescue tape works.. Unbloth both the mastercylinder and booster from the firewall... unmounting the drive shat.. well you'll see where it bolts ,, front and back.. Thats the easir part.. you will heed o happer, pull and tug the shaft until it pops out.. Hope I was helpful.. if you need more help please feel free to ask.

Had the same problem, it turned out to be the sensor switch on the transmission. I was also told to disconnect the battery overnight so all can reset but that did not help in my case.
