If you have a manual transmission, that was gear oil. There is a fill plug that you must remove, and then fill with the pointy end of the gear oil bottle with a piece of hose stretched over the tip (there is no fill tube). If you have an automatic transmission, that was automatic transmission fluid coming out of the differential. This has a separate fill hole very similar to the manual transmission's. In this case, I've used a funnel with a piece of hose stretched over the end. In both cases, the fluids should be added when the car is on a level surface because the fill holes are positioned such that oil spills out when capacity is reached. If you don't have a manual to show you exactly where all these plugs are located and which types of oils to use, go to www.autozone.com, enter your car's information, and you can find an online manual that tells you everything you need to know. Also, this might be a good time to change those fluids (I imagine if you've gone through CV joints, there are quite a few miles on those fluids). If you decide to change them, make sure you can get the fill plug off before you pull the drain plug as to not end up with an empty transmission that you can't fill.

Steering wheel stiff when turning right or left on a 2002 camray le. There is sufficient fluid for the pwr steering. I assume it's something else.


definitely check ur belt condition and tightness..very important.. also wiggle or pry on pwr steering pump pulley to make sure ur shaft hasnt broken .not hard but few wiggles w long prybar should do it. very possible u have a bad pwr steering pump. no pressure in system, or very old burnt out unflushed fluid,dirty fluid.not common.

Grinding noise when accelerating. I drive a 1994 Toyota Tercel automatic, and last night I was cruising the highway at about 75 when my left front tire made a slipping sound, and after that I noticed a...


It sounds more like your wheel bearing. If you jack the car up in the front grab the tire at 12 and 6 and try to wiggle it. If there is movement that will prove to be your wheel bearing or your ball joint. If you have someone look under the car at the ball joint while you do it, you can single out the ball joint and tell if all the play is in your wheel bearing. Usually CV shafts are pretty resilliant, unless they click when you turn the teeth in them should be ok. They will whistle thought if there is no grease in the boot. IF one of your boots are torn and the grease is gone then you can look at the CV shaft. But as far as grinding that is something thats broken or lack of lubrication. Check the CV, but be sure to check the wheel bearing, and make sure the brakes are ok. Unfortunately without being there it makes it a little difficult to be positive. Thanks.

1992 Toyota Corolla CV Joint


You can pick up an entire re manufactured axle assembly at your local auto parts store. In order to replace the assembly you will need to disconnect the tie rod end and the ball joint. Remove the spindle nut. Push the axle stub out of the hub. Now with a suitable container under the axle to catch spilled fluid pry the axle from the transmission housing. Install is the reverse of removal. For more detailed instructions and diagrams go to www.autozone.com vehicle repair guides.

Gear problem


Hi! chefcato36
I am just guessing but is this an automatic transmission? If the automatic transmission oil / coolent is old or low, the transmission will not work correctly. If the trany fluid is more then 5 years old the oil and filter need to be changed.
