Question about 1995 Chevrolet Camaro

1 Answer

I am looking for someone to tell me the name of a part and what it is for. It is a metal rod that bolts to the rear of the transmission ( not the drive shaft ), runs along the drive shaft, is twisted a quarter of a turn and bolts to the rear axle. Anyone seen such a thing?

Metal clunking sound from rear suspension challenger r/t 2010

Sorry dude, it is hard enough trying to keep up with all of the clunks and bumps and squeaks and rattles that occur on vehicles with factory suspension parts. When modifications are is anybody's guess.

All I can tell you is to diagnose the problem the way any auto technician would diagnose any other suspension noise...get it on a lift and perform a thorough inspection and/or have someone bounce the car up and down while you stick your head under it and see if you can tell where the noise is coming from.

Need to change a rear axle seal on my 2004 Chevy Silverado 4x4 can you tell me how to do that and send any pictures you may have or let me know where I can find any pictures. Thanks

HI, my name is Ray. I don't have any pics but I think I can talk you through this ok. First you should remove the cover from the rear differential. Have a pan ready to catch the oil. There will be a couple qts. Remove the ten or twelve bolts with a 13mm socket starting at bottom and working up. Next jack up the side you want to change and block securely. Remove the wheel, brake caliper, (wire it up as not to stretch the hose) and rotor. Now back to the center of differential. Look for a shiney rod about 3/4" diameter and 3-4 in. long. It sits perpindicular to axles and about center of gear cluster. It runs through a spyder gear at each end. Now look for a small bolt at one end of the rod that holds it in. Remove bolt with a 5/16 or 8 mm wrench. You should be able to rotate the ring gear to get the bolt in position. The bolt is very tight so you may need to hit the wrench with hammer to lossen it. once removed, slide the rod down out of cluster and place on clean surface. Now go to outside and push end of axle inward til it stops. Go back underneath and look for end of axle shaft. There is a 'C' clip which holds it in. Remove this, (a magnet works well sometimes) and go to outside and pull axle out. The seal is in outer end of housing. Remove and replace it and reassemble. Good Luck.

  3. Place a suitable drain pan under the transmission fluid pan. Starting at the rear of the pan and working toward the front, loosen the attaching bolts and allow the fluid to drain. Finally remove all of the pan attaching bolts except two at the front, to allow the fluid to further drain. With fluid drained, install two bolts on the rear side of the pan to temporarily hold it in place.
  4. Remove the converter drain plug access cover from the lower end of the converter housing.
  5. Remove the converter-to-flexplate attaching nuts. place a wrench on the crankshaft pulley attaching bolt to turn the converter to gain access to the nuts.
  6. Place a drain pan under the converter to catch the fluid. With the wrench on the crankshaft pulley attaching bolts, turn the converter to gain access to the converter drain plug and remove the plug. After the fluid has been drained, reinstall the plug.
  7. Scribe a mark indexing the driveshaft to axle flange, disconnect the driveshaft from the rear axle and slide shaft rearward from the transmission. Install a seal installation tool in the extension housing to prevent fluid leakage.
  8. Disconnect the cable from the terminal on the starter motor. Remove the three attaching bolts and remove the starter motor. Disconnect the neutral start switch wires at the plug connector.
  9. Remove the rear mount-to-crossmember attaching bolts and the two crossmember-to-frame attaching bolts.
  10. Remove the two engine rear support-to-extension housing attaching bolts.
  11. Disconnect the TV linkage rod from the transmission TV lever. Disconnect the manual rod from the transmission manual lever at the transmission.
  12. Remove the two bolts securing the bellcrank bracket to the converter housing. Fig. 11: Unfasten the two bellcrank bracket-to-converter housing bolts 88187g28.gif

  13. Raise the transmission with a transmission jack to provide clearance to remove the crossmember. Remove the rear mount from the crossmember and remove the crossmember from the side supports.
  14. Lower the transmission to gain access to the oil cooler lines.
  15. Disconnect each oil line from the fittings on the transmission using Cooler Line Disconnect Tool T86P-77265-AH or equivalent.

  20. Carefully move the transmission and converter assembly away from the engine and, at the same time, lower the jack to clear the underside of the vehicle.
  21. Remove the converter and mount the transmission in Bench Mounted Holding Fixture T57L-500-B, or equivalent holding fixture. To install:
  22. Tighten the converter drain plug to 8–28 ft. lbs. (11–38 Nm).
  23. Position the converter on the transmission, making sure the converter drive flats are fully engaged in the pump gear by rotating the converter.
  24. With the converter properly installed, place the transmission on the jack. Secure the transmission to the jack with a chain.
  25. Rotate the converter until the studs and drain plug are in alignment with the holes in the flexplate. WARNING
    Lubricate the pilot bushing with a suitable chassis grease.
  26. Align the yellow balancing marks on converter and flexplate.
  27. Move the converter and transmission assembly forward into position, using care not to damage the flexplate and the converter pilot. The converter must rest squarely against the flexplate. This indicates that the converter pilot is not binding in the engine crankshaft.
  28. Install and tighten the converter housing-to-engine attaching bolts to 40–50 ft. lbs. (55–68 Nm), making sure that the vacuum tube retaining clips are properly positioned.
  29. Remove the safety chain from around the transmission.

    Trans I.D. by vin code

    I can tell you what engine is suppose to be in it by the VIN. I can tell you what transmission you have if you can describe the shape of the bottom pan. As far as the engine that you have that is tough. The engine size should be stamped on the rear of the engine near the distributor near where the engine and transmission meet. Rectangular pan 4 speed= 700r4 Pan like the state of Illinois, 3 speed= TH400 Squared off in front, tapers on both sides to the rear and slopes up to the rear, 4 speed=4L80E These are the only transmissions that were factory installed in a 1992 C1500. If it looks different let me know. You never know what someone has installed.
