Try checking the transmission mount. A bad mount causes the transmission to move back and forth too much, causing unnecessary strain on the axle shaft. Also make the shaft is the right length. Too long or too short can also cause the shaft to break.

My dtr stopped at a traffic lite in her 2008 RAV4, when she gave it gas, it made a loud grinding noise, we had it towed to a mech. Her axle is broken. Is there a known defect that would cause this?

Well, probably not.
Since the early 1980's, most cars now have front wheel drives, which include 2 short drive shafts, and each one of those has 2 CV joints, one at each end.
Any one of those four CV joints can break anytime.
A new or rebuilt axle/cv joint set is usually good for about 80-K miles.
Other than regular inspections by a mechanic ( for example, twice a year), the only other precaution to take to eliminate breakdown such as your dtr had would be to have her learn to listen for sounds of problems with the car.
This might mean to turn off the radio, turn off the A/C, roll down all the windows, and be in the car by yourself with no one to talk to, and listen for unusual noises.
A problem here is, if you have not been doing this, you would not know what to listen for!
God bless your efforts.

I have an 88 ford bronco 2 v6 automatic 2wd. I replaced The flywheel twice because it kept breaking. Someone told me I should get a new torque converter that a faulty one could be causing the flywheel...

Two major possible causes here:
1. Your starter is not engaging the teeth on the outside of the plate properly, as shown by chewed-up teeth, both on flywheel [actually called a flexplate on automatic], and on starter. Dirt trapped in between the starter and the housing will keep it from mating properly, and cost you big bucks. Shims are available to get the teeth exactly lined up.
2. OR your torque converter is indeed not true to the engine drive-shaft, causing pressure off-center. That would cause the flexplate to break out at the center. If this is how your plates broke, you probably will need a new automatic transmission.
If you also have engine oil back there, the rear bearing of the engine could be shot, indicating bad things. Have a pro check both shafts for sloppy bearings.

99 geo metro automatic transmission grinds when put into gear,it happened with no warning of a malfuction,what happened?

CV Joints can break internally and cause the sound similar to trans problems.

You will either need a new axle/CV Joint, or to probably replace/rebuild the Transaxle completely.

You may be able to tell more from underneath with someone turning the wheel as you watch the CV Joint housing to make sure it's moving at the same time on both ends. If one end of the shaft moves, the other should move equally, not just the axle shaft, the ends that go into the trans and through the front wheels!

Good luck!

Loud popping noise coming front passenger side of

Most likely cause of loud popping noise would be a broken or breaking cv shaft. The cv drive shafts have a rubber boot around the bearings on the shaft. Look for a broken rubber boot on the shaft that runs from the transmission housing to the wheel hub area of front wheel. If you find a broken or cracked boot then most likley the **** needs to be replaced to solve your problem.

When I am driving and get to about 30 MPH the whole front end of my car begins to shake. The dash board and, steering wheel. It will becomes less noticable when I get to 55 MPH. And now when I slow down...

Hello, There are a lot of moving parts in the front end. You may have a bad CV joint which is on the shaft that turns the front wheels. Each side has a similar part. There are also hub bearings which are in the hub and the hub is turned by the CV joint shaft.

The CV joint can break without tearing the rubber cover on the shaft, but if someone looks under the car at the CV shaft and sees oil or grease or a torn rubber cover on the right side CV shaft; it will confirm the diagnosis.

Once this part breaks the car will not move anymore. A broken CV joint can cause other parts to fail like the hub bearings. You can call around and price the repair or if you know someone who can do the work, price the parts.

If the shaft needs to be removed, it is behind several parts which will need to be removed first.

When turning corners while driving my 91' honda accord lx, it started making a loud clicking noise, what could cause this?

Your outer CV joint is blown. You need to replace this soon - if the joint fails, the car will not move.

Ford fusion front end noise when doing tight three point turn or manovers

popping noise when turning is usually caused by worn CV joints. Inspect CV boots for tears. Torn boot will allow dust to get in and cause wear. If boot is torn, replace CV joint or entire shaft (usually easier). If boot is not torn, grab shaft next to each CV joint and see how much movement you can cause in the joint. If one CV moves more than the other three, that one is probably bad.

Noise when turning on Lexus LS 400 1994

I think you are talking about a cv shaft. Does this sound only come when you turn the steering wheel far one way and in motion. If so they it is most likely a cv shaft. The cv shaft usually runs about $50-75 and labor will probably be another $75.

yes-your cv(constant velocity)shaft goes from your transmission to your wheel,when your transmission turns it turns the cv shaft which in turn spins your wheel-if the shaft breaks at the joint it will not turn your wheel

I changed my front right cv joint and now the clanking/grinding wound is worse and my bakes arent working but there is enough fluid

The CV joint has nothing to do with the brakes you probably put something back wrong because you had to remove the Caliper and Brake pads.
The CV joint you probably never replaced the C clip which keeps the shaft spline from going out into the hub. The CV joint also has to be synchronized. Which means they have to line up on both sides. Most will mark the shaft first, before removing.
