Is the rear driveshaft turning? If it is, likely you either have a broken axle or a blown gear set inside the differential. If it isn't, then there is a problem inside the transfer case.

Accelerated from a stop and heard a loud bang coming from rear of jeep and then it wouldn;t go anywhere i put it in reverse and then it moved forward i have a 1985 cj7


Distributor shifted on you and timing is out of phase. turn the distributor about 1/4 inch counter clockwise with your hands and test drive it . if it improves you have a busted bolt on the core (not uncommon for an old CJ) .. may need to tighten bolt or drill out a new thread and put a tight bolt in . When you are out of phase, it sounds like you have an exhaust problem , loud noise in exhaust and no compression nor acceleration , except in lower (high rev) gears. jorge diaz

If i have two cj7 jeeps but rear end housings look a little diffrint but both have a 258 engion in them how do i know that there enterchangable


One of your Jeeps may have a heavier duty axle option. The main worry you would have would be are they the same gear ratio. If you swap in a rear end with a different ratio, and use 4wd, it will tear your drivetrain apart!

How do you remove the rear axle on a dodge ram 1500 p-up 2 wheel drive?


1st jack and use jack stands to safely lift the truck.disconnect brake lines and cables, remove tires,unbolt universal rear end to driveshaft, unbolt center bolts from axle to leaf springs, pull the rear end out from the side-much easier with two people. reverse process to put the new one on. I assume when you say axle you mean entire rear end. If you need to remove one axle side just take off tire and brake then remove rear end punkin cover and pull shear pin to remove your ring gear and planetary gear-pull axle shaft.

Bought a 1990 Bronco II from one of my troops and somehow he drove it over here. It's a manual transmission as well. But once I put it in first gear, it feels like something is stopping it going forward....


It sounds like you may have a brake caliper sticking (if the issue is really coming from the front). Does it pull in one direction? One way to check is to jack the front end up and try to spin each tire by hand. They should turn relatively freely. Another possibility, and more likely from your description, is that the rear emergency / parking brake may be frozen. Drum brakes, by nature, do a better job of holding the vehicle from rolling forward. If your emergency / parking brake is engaged, either frozen or inadvertently left on, I would expect the symptoms you describe- moving in reverse, but not forward. You can check this the same way- jack up the rear end of the vehicle, put it in neutral, and try spinning the rear tires by hand.

Assuming your vehicle is a 4x4, a less likely scenario is that something's gone awry in the transfer case, front differential, axles, hubs.

Good luck.

CJ7 84 3" Rubicon express


Lifting a vehicle changes the roll center. The higher you go the more unstable it becomes. I'd replace the shocks and steering stabilizer (sideways shock on steering linkage). Use the best ones you can afford. In an 84, I'd also suspect that many of the suspension bushings may be a bit worn. Those and all suspension linkage ends as well as ball joints should be checked for wear.

95 explorer 4.0 4x4 goes into gear but will not pull in drive or reverse


Either your brake is parking brake is frozen, or you have a gear problem either in the tranny or the rear end. Does it work in 4wd, or do the rear wheel even spin.
