Question about 1993 Land Rover Range Rover County

Oil Seal-Swivel Housing

I've owned a 93 Classic for about 8 years, 2nd owner-- a short while ago I heard a cracking noise in my left front wheel but never checked it until recently when it began making a loud ***** once in a while. I found the insides of the cv joint torn to bits. I've repaced and repacked the inner parts, the bearings and the oils seals. My question is what keeps the oil seal from slipping down the axel shaft; it just appears to sit on the shaft with nothing to hold it in place?

Thanks for any help!!

I own a series vehicle - and have just replaced both swivels. I found oilseals swimming behind my UJ's too. They shouldn't be there!
There is the main axle case oil seal, that is fixed in the axle (inside the 6 bolt flange) This keeps oil in the diff. Then there is the main swivel oil seal - the big one - that usually leaks. Then there is hub back oil seal - keeping all the hub grease in.
There is really no need for another seal behind the UJ - the axle case one does this.

Yes my seals had been stuck on with hymolar & and were shredded. - Now - not a drip.

Oil leak on a '92 Geo Tracker. Installed an O Ring, but still leaking. Any suggestions?


O-ring where? The drain plug? Distributor shaft? Or do you mean oil seal?
Geo oil drain plug specifies a compressible copper ring washer I think? Need to clean the surfaces well, and torque to spec. My own plug's seal is not perfect, but only a drop here and there usually. Autozone or NAPA can supply you a new plug and washer if needed.

The vehicles makes a loud squelling sound when turning the wheel to the left. Doesn't make the sound when turning the wheel to the right only left. Also it seems like the transmission slips in the morning...


The converter seal in the trans is worn, as well as all the others
When you first start the vehicle and put it into gear,if you don't
wait a few minutes, there is little oil in the converter,it drains down
over night,thus 7-8 hours you mentioned.

Any slipping of a trans, is a reason to stop driving it, altogether

I once owned a trans repair shop ,and would suggest your trans
is about due for a rebuild.

Ten or eleven years may seen a short time to you,but not in the
transmission world. If you do not change your fluid every 3 years,
and not more than 30,000 mile,it is a death sentence.

I suspect, you have the same problem with the steering rack
No fluid changes,they last about 6 years, at best.
The squealing is the P/S Pump working against a bound steering
rack and possibly tight suspension parts as well
A new drive belt will help the noise some,but not a repair for the problem

Cracking noise heard/felt when turn to the left


Have you determined where the noise is coming from? I have heard noises like you describe when a Constant Velocity joint has gone bad in a front wheel drive car. You need to determine which side it's coming from left or right and if it is coming from a worn CV joint your best fix is to have the axle replaced and have the other one checked to be sure it's not going to fail shortly after you replace the one that is bad.

Clicking noise when i turn left


Sounds like constant velocity joints at the end of the drive shaft, the joints at the end of the drive shaft that allow the wheel to swivel, to turn. Only makes noise when turning left or right and is usually only from one side.
Hope this is of help. jccampbell@eircom.net

Steering wheel vibration and whine noise from rear of car


Yes, and it probably is your wheel bearing. Hearing a sound like a chain dragging is classic. You may also hear a clicking noise or chain dragging noise when turning to the left or right.

Look under the car and see if the rubber boots that surround the axle near the tires are cracked and leaking grease. If so, it is almost a certainty that the bearings are bad as you have lost grease and thus lubrication to the bearings.

Good luck,

Oil leaking from crack in houseing attached to back end of gearbo


If you can see the crack plainly, you will need to have a transmission shop fix it for you or your isuzu dealer, good luck.
but it may have just the rear seal on the transmission started leaking, and where the castings come together, looks like a crack, and just replace the seal.
good luck;)
