Question about 2002 Chevrolet Tracker

1 Answer

I am needing a slip yoke and transmission tail housing but cannot find them without having to buy complete drive shaft and transmission. I cannot afford these items. Especially when the only parts that are damaged are the slip yoke and transmission tail housing. Do you know where I can get these parts at a reasonable price. Please advise. Thank you.

A reputable shop that rebuilds drive shafts should be able to get you the slip yoke, check the Yellow Pages. If not then your best bet would be to head for the junk yard and get a used drive shaft from them.
You may get lucky at a transmission shop and be able to get a tail shaft housing from a broken transmission but they won't sell one off of any transmission that can be rebuilt. The same will be true at a junk yard.
You can probably order them at the dealer but be prepared to wait to get them. These items aren't going to be on the shelf. They will likely want a deposit to order. You may be furthur ahead to pick up a low mileage tranny from the junk yard. these usually come with a 30 or 60 day warranty. Be sure to drop the pan and change the fluid and filter before you put it in. Hope this helps.

Jeep grand Cherokee transmission tail shaft


is that joint right there a U-joint or CV? Anywho check for play at that joint, There may be a little at the slip yoke, where the tailshaft comes out of the transfer-case , but nowhere else should have any. If those joints are loose: replace U-joint While your under there you might as well check the front drive-shaft also.

Vehicle shakes at 60 mph all wheels and struts replaced


Hello, Are the tires and wheels balanced? If they are balanced then check the drive shaft. This drive shaft transfer the power from the engine/auto transmission to the rear differential/rear wheel.
Now, on each end of the drive shaft is a flexible yoke, this splined yoke has a U-joint with four bearing cups. Two of the bearing cup is attached to the splined yoke and two are attached to the drive shaft. Now, on the rear differential end is a yoke but it has 4 bolts and nuts, it also will have a U-joint attached to the 4 bolted yoke and to other bearing cups attach to drive shaft. U-Joint is called "Universal Joint" Each U-joint has about 10 degree circular travel without any type of binding to the U-joints or the drive shaft.



Two things here. First, take a pry bar and wedge into the U-Joint and move the bar forwards, backwards, up and down. If the drive shafts moves in any direction and clanks. The u-joints need to be replaced and I would replace both of the U-joints. Secondly, if the U-joints aren't loose, then there is a good possibility that the drive shaft is out of balance. In other words, it has lost it small welded plats on the drive shaft and when you are drive you Chrysler the drive shaft is vibrating.



To replace the U-Joints and/or balance the drive shaft. You'll need to remove those 4 bolts and nuts on the differential yoke. Once the bolts are removed then push the drive shaft forward, it will slide forward. Now, under the transmission yoke place a pan/bucket/container to catch the transmission fluid that will drain out once the drive shaft is pull free from the transmission.



If you don't have a press, vise, brass 5 lb hammer, bushing, punches, then I would tackle this job of replacing these U-Joints. Without the proper tools, one can damage the U-joint yokes and the drive shaft. I wouldn't do this without the tools and experience. I use a cutting torch but I have been do it for 50+ years.



If the drive shaft is out of balance, then you will need to take to Drive Line Specialty Shop to have it balanced. Also, have them replace the U-Joints. They have all equipment to do this job. I wish you luck in your endeavor. GB....stewbison

I have a 1985 chevy g20 sportvan the tranny is slipping i need a new one it has a tubo 350 in it and i need to know how to tell if it is short or long


What your looking for is the length of the rear tail shaft housing on the transmission. You want to measure the length of the one on your vans transmission. You will need to get under your van and measure from where the drive shaft slides into the back of the transmission to one of the 4 bolts a the front of that housing.

How do i replace a driveshaft for a 1997 lincon cotanental


I searched under 1997 lincoln continental and found this: Driveshaft and U-Joints
REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Town Car and Mark VII-VIII Fig. 1: The bolts retaining the rear driveshaft yoke-to-differential flange require a 12mm, 12 point wrench or socket to loosen them 91197p12.jpg
Fig. 2: Remove the bolts retaining the rear driveshaft yoke-to-differential flange 91197p11.jpg
Fig. 3: Separate the driveshaft from the axle flange and . . . 91197p13.jpg
Fig. 4: . . . disengage the driveshaft from the transmission output shaft 91197p14.jpg
Fig. 5: Insert a plug onto the splines of the transmission output shaft to prevent fluid from leaking out 91197p15.jpg
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Mark the position of the driveshaft yoke on the axle companion flange so they can be reassembled in the same way to maintain balance.
  3. Remove the flange bolts and disconnect the driveshaft from the axle companion flange.
  4. Allow the rear of the driveshaft to drop down slightly.
  5. Pull the driveshaft and slip yoke rearward until the yoke just clears the transmission extension housing seal. Mark the position of the slip yoke in relation to the transmission output shaft, then remove the driveshaft.
  6. Plug the transmission to prevent fluid leakage. To install:
  7. Lubricate the yoke splines with suitable grease.
  8. Remove the plug from the transmission and inspect the extension housing seal; replace if necessary.
  9. Align the slip yoke and output shaft with the marks made at removal and install the yoke into the transmission extension housing. Be careful not to bottom the slip yoke hard against the transmission seal.
  10. Rotate the axle flange, as necessary, to align the marks made during removal.
  11. Install the driveshaft yoke to the axle flange. Install the bolts and tighten to 71–95 ft. lbs. (95–130 Nm).
  12. Lower the vehicle.

Leaking oil at spline shaft slip yoke at rear of transmission


there is a long bush type bearing in this tunnel just at the end were the seal fits in it can were out and let the prop shaft flap about, this in turn rips the seal to bits,,,also the yoke has a polished part on the end that go's over the spline into the end of the gear box tunnel the seal can were a groov into this part, and no amount of new seals will stop it leaking them as the new seal runs in this worn out groov, again ripping it to bits,,,test the long bush type bearing by holding the prop shaft yoke and pushing it up and to the side, if it moves about replace the bush in the end of the tunnel as well,, its a push in fit! with a big hammer!!
if the yoke has a groov in it you need a new prop as all prop shafts are balanced so you can just fit a new yoke it could throw the car up in the air when your driving it down the free way,,,,by shaking it apart
i hope this is of help to you

HOW DO YOU TAKE THE DRIVE SHAFTS OFF A 2002 DODGE DURANGO


To remove the drive shaft you will need to raise the vehicle off the ground and support it with jack stands. There are 4 bolts that hold the rear drive shaft u-joint in the pinion yoke on the rear differential. Once you remove the bolts and u-joint straps, then just carefully pry the u-joint from the yoke. Be careful not to let the u-joint caps slip off of the u-joint or you could lose the needle bearings that are in the u-joint caps. Once you have freed the shaft at the rear you can just slip the drive shaft rearward to remove it from the transmission. Place a drain pan under the transmission where the drive shaft is connected, as transmission fluid will run out, and you don't want it dripping on the ground. If you vehicle is four wheel drive and you want to remove the front drive shaft, you remove it just like the rear shaft but there are bolts and straps on both ends of the front one. You will probably need to keep the front shaft from turning while you loosen the bolts. You can use a long screwdriver or pry bar inserted in to the area between the u-joint and the yoke.

I need to replace mt tail shaft seal


Unbolt the drive shaft from the rear differential. Slid the driveshaft yoke out of the transmission tale stock. The seal is right there at the end of the transmission. Take a seal remover or a screw driver and remove the seal, it may be tough getting it out and if you damage it, it's not a problem just don't damage the housing. After it's out take a socket or I use an ABS pipe the same size as your seal and place the seal at the seal seat and tap it in lightly and evenly. put the drive shaft back in tail stock and bolt back onto the differential. Good luck

Remove it. Then drive the truck to see if it vibrates. If it don't forget it. If it does, replace the driveshaft. But get it off there before it breaks something.

I'm replacing the tail shaft seal on transmission. I need to see how the seals are put in transmission


Drive it home with a ball peen hammer.Just a note here,behind every leaking seal is a worn out bushing,so don't be surprised if replacing the seal doesn't stop the leak.Inside the tailshaft housing is a bushing that engages the driveshaft yoke.It should be a fairly tight fit when the yoke is installed and the driveshaft is bolted up.Grasp the driveshaft and yoke and wiggle it up and down,should be just a couple thousandths play.If excessive play,it needs a new bushing which entales removing the extension housing,driving out old bushing,and driving in new bushing which requires bushing drivers.But the seal,you just drive it in with a hammer.It will want to walk the opposite direction,so you have to press it down with your other hand while hitting it with the hammer.Also make sure the seal has some lube on it where it contacts the yoke.A dry seal will rip and leak.
