Its probably shift linkage between shift handle and transmision get under car and find where the shifter comes through the cars floor and check the rod arms that run between shifter and tranny, if its good then its internal transmision.

What is a cv shaft


Dear Dianne,
Under the front hood of your Honda is a motor or it is also called an engine.
The engine is hooked or fastened to a large container called a transmission, which is also under the front hood.
In order to get the car to move, there are 2 steel drive shafts going from the transmission to the front wheels.
These drive shafts are about one to 2 feet long, and each one drives a front wheel. That is why there are 2.
These steel drive shafts have a large joint at each end of them, so you see why there are 4 joints.
The joints attach to the wheel on one end and the transmission on the other end.
These 2 steel drive shafts are called cv shafts because they have a CV joint at each end, and these CV joints are a part of the shaft assembly.
The CV shafts "transfer" the movement of the engine to the wheels.

How to change cv joints


I would replace the complete axle assembly,
it would be cheaper and come with a warranty.

Instructions
  1. Remove the CV Joint
    • Remove the boot straps from the CV joint using a standard screwdriver or a pair of diagonal cutting pliers.
    • Slide the boot back over the interconnecting shaft.
    • Get Chevrolet Info at InsideLine Free News, Videos, Photos & More!
      Detach the stop ring at the base of the CV joint assembly using a pair of snap ring pliers.

    • Pull the CV joint assembly from the interconnecting shaft to force the snap ring at the top of the shaft through the CV joint assembly.
    • Tilt the inner cage (the cage holding the balls in place inside the housing) in different angles to remove the six balls. Use your thumb or a hammer and a wooden dowel, if necessary.
    • Tilt the inner cage enough to remove it from its housing.
    • Rotate the race inside the cage--the part that holds the balls against the inner cage--and remove the race from the cage.
      Replace the CV Joint
      • Apply a thick coat of grease to the new CV joint race using special high temperature/high pressure grease (see Tips below).
      • Install the race inside the new cage. Then install the cage/race assembly inside the CV joint housing.
      • Tilt the cage at different angles and fit the new balls in place.
      • Slide a new CV joint rubber boot over the interconnecting shaft.
      • Install a new snap and stop ring on the interconnecting shaft.
      • Push the interconnecting shaft through the CV joint assembly to force the snap ring through the assembly.
      • Apply a thick coat of CV joint grease to all moving parts of the assembly.
      • Apply a coat of CV joint grease to the inside of the rubber boot. Then slide the boot over the CV joint assembly.
      • Install the boot straps at each end of the boot, and tighten the straps using a clamp tool or screwdriver, depending on the type of clamp.

99 geo metro automatic transmission grinds when put into gear,it happened with no warning of a malfuction,what happened?


CV Joints can break internally and cause the sound similar to trans problems.

You will either need a new axle/CV Joint, or to probably replace/rebuild the Transaxle completely.

You may be able to tell more from underneath with someone turning the wheel as you watch the CV Joint housing to make sure it's moving at the same time on both ends. If one end of the shaft moves, the other should move equally, not just the axle shaft, the ends that go into the trans and through the front wheels!


Good luck!

When I am driving and get to about 30 MPH the whole front end of my car begins to shake. The dash board and, steering wheel. It will becomes less noticable when I get to 55 MPH. And now when I slow down...


Hello, There are a lot of moving parts in the front end. You may have a bad CV joint which is on the shaft that turns the front wheels. Each side has a similar part. There are also hub bearings which are in the hub and the hub is turned by the CV joint shaft.

The CV joint can break without tearing the rubber cover on the shaft, but if someone looks under the car at the CV shaft and sees oil or grease or a torn rubber cover on the right side CV shaft; it will confirm the diagnosis.

Once this part breaks the car will not move anymore. A broken CV joint can cause other parts to fail like the hub bearings. You can call around and price the repair or if you know someone who can do the work, price the parts.

If the shaft needs to be removed, it is behind several parts which will need to be removed first.

Ford fusion front end noise when doing tight three point turn or manovers


popping noise when turning is usually caused by worn CV joints. Inspect CV boots for tears. Torn boot will allow dust to get in and cause wear. If boot is torn, replace CV joint or entire shaft (usually easier). If boot is not torn, grab shaft next to each CV joint and see how much movement you can cause in the joint. If one CV moves more than the other three, that one is probably bad.

I just asked this question a minute ago but I want to clarify a little more. Got a buddy of mine who is having a car issue and was hoping you guys could help out. We are wondering if bad CV joints can lead...


Much of the symptoms you describe sound like a CV joint. I would take it to the dealer and insist that it be fixed... What is bothering me though is under normal operating conditions, CV joints and boots are engineered to last upwards of 150,000 miles. Some go the distance, but a lot reach the end of the road far short of their design life. According to one major aftermarket supplier of replacement axle shafts, CV joint shafts are typically being replaced at anywhere from 70,000 miles to 130,000 miles.

Read this and see if you agree...
SYMPTOMS OF CV JOINT FAILURE
Bad boots are not the only thing you need to look for. You also need to listen for noise or complaints that might indicate a CV joint problem. These include:

  • Popping or clicking noises when turning. This almost always indicates a worn or damaged outer CV joint. To verify this condition, place the vehicle in reverse, crank the steering wheel to one side and drive the vehicle backwards in a circle (check the rearview mirror first!). If the noise gets louder, it confirms the diagnosis and the need for a new CV joint or replacement shaft assembly.
  • A "clunk" when accelerating, decelerating or when putting the transaxle into drive. The noise comes from excessive play in the inner joint on FWD applications, either inner or outer joints in a RWD independent suspension, or from the driveshaft CV joints or U-joint in a RWD or AWD powertrain. The same kind of noise can also be produced by excessive backlash in differential gears. To verify the condition, back the vehicle up, alternately accelerating and decelerating while in reverse. If the clunk or shudder is more pronounced, it confirms a bad inner joint.
  • A humming or growling noise. Sometimes due to inadequate lubrication in either the inner or outer CV joint, this symptom is more often due to worn or damaged wheel bearings, a bad intermediate shaft bearing on equal length halfshaft transaxles, or due to worn shaft bearings within the transaxle.
  • A shudder or vibration when accelerating. May be caused by play in the inboard or outboard joints, but the most likely cause is a worn inboard plunge joint. Similar vibrations can also be caused by a bad intermediate shaft bearing on transaxles with equal length halfshafts, or by bad motor mounts on FWD vehicles with transverse-mounted engines.
  • A vibration that increases with speed. This symptom is rarely caused by a failing CV joint. An out-of-balance tire or wheel, an out-of-round tire or wheel, or a bent rim are the more likely causes.

The right side inner cv joint cup is wobbley, is it the cv joint or a bearing on the transmission? Thank you


to find this out hold with both hands the cv joint pull on the inner shaft when holding the outer shaft still if it moves a lot its the joint, if it dont move much, its not the joint so then pull on the outer part of the joint that go's into the gearbox, dont hold the shaft only hold the inner most part of the cv joint that go's into the box if it moves/ flops about its the bearing in the gear box
