Clicking noise in front end when in 4 wheel drive


sounds like cv joints as they have independent 4 wheel drive axles and not a full rear end. Just the same as the cv joints in a front wheel drive. ?Does the noise get worse while turning?

What would make a trans squeal while driving down the road?


You don't say, Front or rear wheel drive. First check oil level, On rear wheel drive check the thrower plate on the tail shaft at the diff end is not bent and rubbing on the seal, A dry oil seal can make this noise.so can the U/Joints. on front wheel drive , check the cv joints , dry oil seals , the drive shaft inner cv joints have a thrower plate that may be bent. worn or binding brakes can make this noise also.

Severe vibration in front end at 60 mph. steering wheel also vibrates even at lower mph.


If it's front wheel drive the "C.V. Joints". The Constant Velosity Joints connect the front wheels to the drive shafts (R & L). Call around to front end alignment shops for quote about $175 to $225 +$130 if four wheel drive, more labor. Listen if is is noiser (clicking) in turns, than driving straight, if so CV's are bad.

Does the 1988 Nissan Stanza have U-joints? The reason I ask is because when the car shifts it jolts. And when you put it in gear it jolts and vibrates. I looked under the car and I dont see a driveline. Is...


Hi, yes you have front wheel drive. The drive shafts are on each side going from the transaxle to the wheels. each axle has 2 constant velocity (CV) joints. This is a bit different than a U-joint but serves the same purpose. There are 2 indications of a worn out CV joint. Id the boot is torn, the CV will wear out due to dirt getting in. If you hear a popping noise when making a sharp turn, that is a worn our CV joint. If your boots are intact and there is no popping on turns, the odds are the problem is not with the joints but somewhere else in the drive train. Raise the car and turn the wheels by hand to see where the play is coming from. let us know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Hello, so I'm trying to better understand failing cv joints and how it can affect front differential on a front drive SUV. I read an article that when cv joints go bad it can affect the front differential...


First I think you read it wrong ,that Front WD suv have locking dif..they don't , it locks at the transfer case at the tranny and only on All Wheel Drive SUVs. And then it only transfer more power from back wheels to front wheel. The dif are open dif. means the power goes to the wheels with least resistance or limited slip dif. that transfers power to slower turning wheel. Yes max. load is at full lock and high speeds and yes it does damage over time (wear out), less at lower speeds. The symptoms of a failing cv is knocking while turning.

CV JOINTS?


The CV joints are needed to transfer the torque at a constant speed to steered wheels as well as to accommodate up and down motions of the suspension.
You will find CV joints in all front-wheel drive cars. Many rear- and four-wheel drive cars and trucks have CV joints as well. The CV joint is packed with grease and protected by the rubber or plastic boot.
It does not require any maintenance and supposed to last very long provided that protective boot will not get damaged.

97 ford explorer awd bad right front cv joint


Yes you can, If you have taken the front drive shaft off, you can even still drive with the CV joint in place till you want to remove it. You may get some vibration around corners till you replace the CV joint or remove it totally.
But if your going to remove it, might as well wait till you have the replacement so you only do the job once. I had a Bad CV joint on a AWD Chevy van and did the same thing so i could still use it, and then replaced the CV joint when the weather got better.
Good luck and hope this helps.
