How to fix a rattle in my steering on my 1999 gmc jimmy. i have a rattle in my steering in my 1999 gmc jimmy


Check the steering intermediate shaft connection to the steering gear box, its slip shaft and the connection to the stering collumn. if those are ok, its probably slop in the steering gear box. Some of that can be adjusted out on the gear box by your mechanic. You will see either a flat head cut or hex head inset with a lock nut on the top of the gear box. Loosening hte lock nut and tightening the bolt to factory torque setting then releasing it the appropriate specified degress will reset the gear box back to factory settings. Beware if you set this wrong you will cause your steering to bind when turning. Therefore only let a qualified mechanic do this for you.

The clearance between the propeller shaft and the gear box of cortina 16E (1970) thanks


You have me confused? There is no clearance between the prop-shaft and the gearbox. THe front of the prop-shaft slides over the splines on the end of the gearbox and the end of the shaft bolts onto the flange on the differential which locates the prop-shaft longitudinally, with a bit of sliding movement allowed on the splines for suspension and engine movement. Come back to me if that is not what you were asking.

Car will start but will not move.


is it stick shift or auto box???
for stick shift check the clutch is working and the drive shafts are good
if the half shaft if snaped the prop shaft will turn but the car wont move!
if its an auto box check it is full of oil as well and then check the gear shift is working some times they just fall off,,,,,if the prop shaft is turning and the car wont move the fault is in the rear axle (drive shafts snaped)

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

ZAFIRA 2006 CANT REFIT SELECTOR SHAFT AFTER REMOVEL?


If you mean the gear selector. Fit it Into position. Remove the Cover from the gear lever, Hold the gear leaver to the left. Place a 6mm Allen Key or Small bladed screw driver in the hole on the left to lock the lever into position. Under the bonnet twist the 'Remote to the right or left(not sure which way). There is a White Pin with a spring on it. This will push in and lock. The gears should the n be set up. Tighten the lock nut on the selector 'Stub' that's on the rear of the gear box and bingo the gear leaver is set.
