You may have the wrong shaft,check the splines on both shafts,the old one,and the new one,if you still have the old one,if not take it back to the parts store and check it along side of the old shaft.

    There is supposed to be a clip on the end of the axle ,and you will need to kind of slam it in the transmission to make the clip catch and hold.If the clip is not there this is the problem.

    Did you get my message?There is supposed to be a clip to hold the axle in,if it is not there you need to find it,it will click into place after you slam it in the chunk.

Having the drive shaft in your hands going about this is difficult. With someone at the very end helping you holding it up it will become much easier to twist it a little at a time to line it in correctly

How to replace an front axle seal


2004 MDX - Front Driveshaft Installation


  1. Install a new set ring in the set ring groove of the driveshaft
    (left driveshaft).





  1. Apply 2.0-3.0 g (0.07-0.10 oz) of grease to the whole splined
    surface (A) of the right driveshaft. After applying grease, remove the grease
    from the splined grooves at intervals of 2-3 splines and from the set ring
    groove (B) so that air can bleed from the intermediate shaft.





  1. Clean the areas where the driveshaft contacts the differential
    thoroughly with solvent or brake cleaner, and dry with compressed air. Insert
    the inboard end (A) of the driveshaft into the differential (B) or intermediate
    shaft (C) until the set ring (D) locks into the groove (E).





  1. Install the outboard joint (A) into the front hub (B).





  1. Install the knuckle (A) onto the lower arm (B). Be careful not to
    damage the ball joint boot (C). Wipe off the grease before tightening the nut at
    the ball joint. Torque the new castle nut (D) to the lower torque specification,
    then tighten it only far enough to align the slot with the ball joint pin hole.
    Do not align the nut by loosening it.

    NOTE: Make sure the ball joint boot is not damaged or cracked.


  2. Install the new lock pin (E) into the pin hole as
    shown.





  1. Install the stabilizer link (A) to the damper (B).





  1. Install a new spindle nut (A), then tighten the nut. After
    tightening, use a drift to stake the spindle nut shoulder (B) against the
    driveshaft.


  2. Clean the mating surfaces of the brake disc and the front wheel,
    then install the front wheel with the wheel nuts.


  3. Turn the front wheel by hand, and make sure there is no interference
    between the driveshaft and surrounding parts.


  4. Tighten the flange bolts and the self-locking nut with the vehicle's
    weight on the damper.


  5. Refill the
    transmission with recommended fluid.



  6. Check the
    front wheel alignment, and adjust it if necessary.

1996 toyota camry 2.2 5s- too manny timing marks crank shaft,cam shaft and cam shaft gears


Hi there:I dont have this diagram for 2S-ELC, 3S-FE and 5S-FE Engines, but pay attention at this...
To install:
  1. Align the cutouts of the oil pump pulley and shaft, and slide the pulley on. Retain the pulley while tightening the nut to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
  2. Align the crankshaft timing pulley set key with the key groove of the crankshaft pulley, then slide the pulley on.
  3. Install the No. 2 idler pulley with the bolt and tighten to 31 ft. lbs. (42 Nm). Be sure the pulley moves smoothly.

Remove any oil or water on the idler pulley and keep it clean.

  1. Temporarily install the No. 1 idler pulley with the retaining bolt. Hint: use a 1.65 inch (42mm) bolt in length. Do not tighten the bolt yet. Install the tension spring. Pry the pulley toward the left as far as it will go, then tighten the bolt.
  2. Turn the crankshaft until the key groove in the crankshaft timing pulley is facing upward. Install the timing belt on the crankshaft timing, oil pump, No. 2 idler and water pump pulleys.

If the old timing belt is being reinstalled, make sure the directional arrow is facing in the original direction and that the belt and crankshaft gear matchmarks are properly aligned.

  1. Install the lower (No. 1) timing belt cover and new gasket with the four bolts.
  2. Align the crankshaft pulley set key with the pulley key groove. Install the pulley. Tighten the pulley bolt to 80 ft. lbs. (108 Nm).
  3. On 2S-ELC engines, turn the crankshaft pulley and align the 0 mark on the lower (No. 1) timing belt cover.
  4. Align the camshaft knock pin with the matchmarks on the oil seal retainer.
  5. On 2S-ELC/USA engines, align the knock pin with the pin hole on the timing pulley E mark side. On 2S-ELC/Canadian engines, align the knock pin with the pin hole on the timing pulley. On 3S-FE and 5S-FE engines, align the knock pin with the groove of the pulley, and slide the pulley onto the camshaft with the plate washer and set bolt.

On 2S-ELC engines, make sure that the Matchmark on the oil seal retainer and center hole of the small hole on the camshaft timing pulley are aligned.

  1. Using the removal tool to hold the pulley stationary, install and tighten the pulley set bolt to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) on the 2S-ELC and the 3S-FE. On the 5S-FE, tighten the set bolt to 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  2. On 3S-FE and 5S-FE engines, turn the crankshaft pulley and align the 0 mark on the lower (No. 1) timing belt cover.
  3. Install the timing belt and check the valve timing as follows:
    1. Align the matchmarks that you made previously, and install the timing belt onto the camshaft pulley.
    2. Loosen the No. 1 idler pulley set bolt 1 / 2 turn.
    3. Turn the crankshaft pulley two complete revolutions TDC to TDC. ALWAYS turn the crankshaft CLOCKWISE. Check that the pulleys are still in alignment with the timing marks.
    4. Tighten the No. 1 idler pulley set bolt to 31 ft. lbs. (42 Nm).
    5. Make sure there is belt tension between the crankshaft and camshaft timing pulleys.

  4. Install the upper (No. 2) timing cover with a new gasket(s). On the 5S-FE, align the two clamps for the engine wiring harness with the cover mounting bolts.
  5. Install the spark plugs.
  6. Install the right mounting insulator with bracket. Tighten the bracket bolts to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm), insulator nuts to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm) and thru-bolt to 52 ft. lbs. (71 Nm). On the 5S-FE, install the No. 2 engine mount bracket and tighten to 38 ft. lbs. (52 Nm); install the control rod and tighten the bolts to 47 ft. lbs. (64 Nm).
  7. Lower the engine.
  8. On 3S-FE and 5S-FE engines, install the alternator and alternator bracket. On 2S-ELC engines, install the power steering reservoir tank.
  9. Install the drive belt and adjust the tension.
  10. Install the cruise control actuator with bracket.
  11. Install the fender apron seal and right engine under cover.
  12. Install the right front wheel.


Hope this helps.

    4cyl 2000 honda accord engine stalls while idling, recently died and will only start for short periods... possible problems/solutions?


    check for spark and fuel after it dies.

    If there is spark but no fuel, then the fuel pump may be bad or a clogged fuel filter.

    If there is fuel but not spark, then the ignition control module or the ignition coil could be bad.

    Also, check that the timing belt is timing the engine correctly.

    Tranny fluid dripping off the drive shaft still!


    Hi!!

    Check that the transmission is not overfilled, if OK, could be that the seal got damaged (which is very easy to do) when installed or when inserting back the drive shaft. I use the old seal to align the new one, a piece of wood and a rubber hammer to drive it in, always checking that is going straight. Before inserting the drive shaft, clean it good and lubricate w tranny fluid, that reduces the friccion when inserting it back.

    Hope this help you fix your leak. click below if helpful. Good luck.
