SOURCE: how do I replace the front wheel bearings on a Mazda 626 1998

The front bearings on a mazda 626 are sealed and you must remove the entire hub assembly to have a shop or dealer install the bearings. The hardest part is you need to remove the center axel nut and it is very tight and is called a stake nut. If you do not have a fairly good amout of skill at repairs, this is one job that is safest left to the pros. Just one missed step can create more damage than you could beleive.

How to change the front differential on my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 4 wheel drive.


Unless you are a seasoned mechanic with a lot of tools and a lift, take it to the shop. This swap is like a caesarian section on your truck. All kinds of things have to come loose, like axle shafts and crossmembers and hubs and such. Not something to learn how to do.

Can I put a 366 cid engine and a 5-speed transmission in a 1988 1Ton 4WD Chevy P/U with the C/K body style?


Yes for the 366 since it is a MKIV like the 454; the difference is the taller deck making it taller and wider, but I would expect there is plenty of room in the C/K engine bay for the taller deck 366 MK IV. Note the 366 also takes a different intake than the short deck MK IV.. What 5 speed is it. The 5 speed may (very likely will) be different than the 4 speed that came in the truck. Since you have a 4WD, the location of the output of the 5 speed vs-a-vis the 4 speed is quite important. You may be looking at altering location of the transfer case and changing the length of both drive shafts from the transfer case to the banjos. If you have a drive train specialty shop in your area I would get their input on the changes (cost) involved in the possible drive train changes required by the length difference between the 5 speed and the 4 speed gearbox.

Wh does 1st gear jump out on accelerator release ?


There are a few things to check. Engine and transmission mounts replace any broken or perished . 1st gear selector shaft has a indent ball and spring to locate the shaft when in gear, check the spring is not broken. The gear box bearings may be worn giving the drive shaft to much end play. also check gear shift linkage is not worn.

Disconnected rear differential


You must have a 4 Wheel-drive. You should have a driveshaft for that end of the vehicle and you should not let the Mechanic keep it. The rear unit must have a bad Pinion bearing or more damaged parts. Some of parts can "freewheel" without having power going through them.

But the metal shavings from broken parts can travel inside the differential and cause more problems. You don't always need the 4-wheel drive function and you do not have it since the Mechanic disconnected it.

Sometimes it can be what is called an "axle" bearing. Each side has this part so you have 2. The noise levels for this part can also change when the 4 wheel drive is engaged.

Make sure the rear differential has lube. Read the Web for articles about your vehicle. Search "2003 Ford Escape rear differential".

There is a Salvage yard site called Car-parts.com which is good for locating used parts like differentials. One would need to match the same gear ratio as the front.

The Selectable Four Wheel Drive (S4WD) Front Axle consist of the following components:
• Differential Carrier Housing
• Differential Case Assembly
• Inner Axle Shaft
• Intermediate Shaft Bearing Assembly (located on the right side of the oil pan)
• Electric Motor Actuator
The front axle on Selectable Four Wheel Drive (S4WD) model vehicles uses a disconnect feature mounted on the right side of the oil pan in order to engage and disengage the front axle. When the driver engages the 4WD system, the Transfer Case Control Module sends a signal to the electric motor actuator to energize and extend the plunger inside. The extended plunger moves the clutch fork and clutch fork sleeve across from the clutch fork outer gear that is splined to the right side wheel drive shaft to the clutch fork inner gear that is splined to the inner axle shaft. The locking of the two gears allows the axle to operate in the same manner as a semi-floating rear axle. A propeller shaft connects the transfer case to the front axle. The differential carrier assembly uses a conventional ring and pinion gear set to transmit the driving force of the engine to the wheels. The open differential allows the wheels to turn at different rates of speed while the axle continues to transmit the driving force. This prevents tire scuffing when going around corners and premature wear on internal axle parts. The ring and pinion set and the differential are contained within the carrier. The axle identification number is located on top of the differential carrier assembly or on a label on the bottom of the right half of differential carrier assembly. The wheel drive shafts are completely flexible assemblies consisting of inner and outer constant velocity CV joints protected by thermoplastic boots and connected by a wheel drive shaft.

Remove the cover on the rear axle Inside you will see the differential gears. If the gears are damaged or there is a large amount of metal flakes in the lube, likely the differential has failed. Generally it is far cheaper and easier to replace it with a scrapyard unit. Replacing the gear set is not a bolt in procedure and takes special tools and knowledge..To replace it end to end, all you need is a decent set of tools, some common sense and a manual if you are a novice or unsure of yourself. Only thing you need is to match the gear ratio to the front one. You can either identify that from a metal tag on the cover or by counting teeth on the ring gear and pinion gears. Ring divided by pinion=ratio.
If the transfer case has been diagnosed as bad, make sure the noise isn't being transmitted through the driveshaft. Verify diff condition by looking!!

Will a rear end out of E350 Ford interchange with a Chevy 3500 dually


Is the c/k 3500 4 wheel drive?If it is 4WD,you must retain the same gear ratios for both front and rear axles,or the transfer case will be damaged.If it is 2 wheel drive,you can install any gear you like.I believe the Ford E350 rear axle is a Dana 70,as i have rebuilt 2 of that model,along with Dana 60's.The Ford unit likely will not be a bolt in.It will probably require professionally welding new mount brackets on the Ford axle housing.The width needs to be measured from inside the brake backing plate to the other brake backing plate to see if it will physically fit.Good luck.
