Did they take the bolts out and apply new "loctite" ?
The bolts have a special 12 point "torx" head.

How do i fix this problem ? clanking high pitch sound coming from intake.


have a compression test done as it may be a loose valve seat insert
balance shafts are just shafts and unless you have done a bearing for the shaft it will not make a clanking sound as there is no pressure applied to the shaft
basically a balance shaft is like a flywheel that takes vibrations out of the motor

Where is the prop shaft located?


Your vehicle doesn't have a PROP shaft. Yours has a drive shaft. Prop shafts are normally on 4x4 trucks and refer to front drive shaft. What trouble are you having with the cruise control?

The front right tire on my 95 plymouth neon shakes an grinds when im going going straight or taking a right turn but only when im accelerating then stops when i press harder n the pedal. My drive shaft...


CV shafts "look" fine even when they're not. Grinding when turning or on acceleration is almost always the the CV joint. Replace the right side CV shaft. As far as the bearing being "loose", it is a pressed-on unit. I'd probably replace that too. Make sure you torque the CV spindle nu to the proper torque value. If you don't and it's too tight or too loose you will get an early failure of the bearing.

Free mechanical advice online


it may require a big bit of bluff here but it is generally accepted that all bolts under tension are replaced as a matter of course . Workshop manuals all say that big end bolts, main bolts, crank shaft pulley bolt, cam shaft bolts and head studs all should be replaced to avoid problems after reassembly. It amounts to wether the mechanic is professional and well trained or not . The shop / mechanic should have a parts and labour warranty for at least 30 days to cover this problem. Talk nicely but firmly and maybe you can come to an agreement. Check for local /state law on your entitlements before starting the discussion.. You could be surprised at where you stand

Camshaft sensor on Audi a3 keeps breaking had two


They normally last long, they need to check that the rotor cup that the speed sender gets its signal from is not damaged and has the correct spacing. Also check for oil contamination from leaking cam seals.

About a month ago I began hearing rattling noises when I would depress the clutch. Over a few days the noise became less noticeable but then I started having trouble shifting gears (5 speed manual...


If the bearings were worn out due to high milage, the input shaft will have too much play in it. To replace all of the bearings is a big job, and a lot of shops won't do it. They may have replaced the transmission to save time, as replacing the bearing is very time consuming. So it all stems on what your final cost was.

Drive shaft for 1988 Ford Ranger extended cab


I have a '88 Ranger XLT extra cab 4X4 w/auto tranny (2.9L V6) that had a 2-piece driveshaft on it. After adding a 4" suspension lift, there was a strong vibration whenever I took off from a dead stop. I replaced the drive shaft with a beefed up 1 piece custom built by a shop specializing in drive shafts. The truck no longer had any vibration, and it hooks up immediately on exceleration. I found the shop on Ebay advertising drive shafts. All I had to do was measure the length from the transfer case/Tranny to the rear differential. The length of the new drive shaft allowed me to adjust almost 3/4" so all I had to do was get it close. I also took close up pictures so the shop could match up the correct flange on both ends of the driveshaft. The last thing I had to do was flip the crossmember brace so it wouldn't interfere with the new drive shaft.
