Check your in-service date for warranty. Its always a good idea to contact 2 dealers for info about service bulletins and extended warranties.

If not, most joints have a rubber boot that can be replaced with aftermarket split boots. You may be lucky and just have a missing metal clamp. Then inject some more lube and reclamp and you are good to go.

Check engine light cam on and transmission does not work after hitting a pothole


Hitting can damage many systems under the car. Check the following:
- One of the Constant Velocity (CV) Joints may have slipped out of the transmission due to which the car could not move even in any gear.
- Check the transmission for any leakage. If so, repair the leakage, top up the transmission oil to the specified level and check to see if it works.
- Check the transmission control cable.
- If the problem persists consult an authorized service personnel.

Oil odor coming into cabin no sign of leakage on motor


If nothing else helps: odors can sometimes be confusing. Might not be engine oil smell. 1) If it is coming during accelerations or uphills it might be automatic tranny fluid boiling. Check tranny fluid level or condition. 2) check for cracks on exhaust manifold and union/joint between manifold/cat converter and the rest of exhaust pipe. 3) check CV boots for cracks and grease leaks/sprays-especially if CAT converter is bellow CV joint/boot.

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.

While driving 35 mph transmission just lost all gears forward and reverse. Its like its in neutral. 2003 gmc sonoma 4.3 automatic and 4wd


Hi Greg,First thing to check is the Automatic Transmission Fluid make sure its there. If you need to refill have the leakage attended to soonest! Look for broken universal joints if its rear wheel drive and for a broken CV joint if its a front puller. If its none of these get ready to pay big bucks.Regards Johngee10

Cv joint question


Stationary lock to lock turning, will not damage the CV joints, they are designed to turn in this manner, to test a CV joint to see if it has damage, go to an empty parking lot, stop the car, turn the steering wheel full left, accelerate kinda hard, do you hear a clicking or clunking noise? repeat in reverse and on the right hand side. Any noises and your CV joints may be worn, also inspect the CV boots for tears and leakage by turning full left and looking at the boot, then full right. Hope this helps, let me know

How do I change the CV joints on a 1.8TD Ford Escort P reg


Hi mate

With the driveshaft removed from the vehicle.

Undo the the retaining straps on the CV boot.

Pull the CV boot up the driveshaft a little way, enough so you can clean all the old grease away.

Now look into the CV joint an locate the circlip that locks the CV to the driveshaft.

Now put the driveshaft into a vice with the CV joint facing downwards.

Now open the circlip and at the same time strike the CV joint. You can do this with a ballpin hammer if you are scrapping the CV joint. You can get a helper to stike the CV joint with a hammer while you keep the circlip open.

This will release the CV joint form the drive shaft.

Now clean the driveshaft of any old grease and fit a new CV boot if needed.

Now reverse the driveshift in the vice and fit the new CV joint. It will tap on with no trouble but do not damage it. Test it is on by trying to pull it off with your hands.

Now fill it with new grease.

Fit the CV boot to the CV joint and secure it to the CV joint.

Now it is ready to refit to your vehicle.

I trust this solves the problem for you.
