You're probably thinking about the constant velocity axle.

I have a 2000 toyota celica gt with a manual trans. It's making a noise while your driving it. Someone told me the axel was bad so I replaced it. That wasn't the problem, but where the axel goes in the...

It could be a wheel bearing either the left or right side maybe both. When driving around corners note if the noise gets louder when turning either way, for example if the noise gets louder turning right then the left front wheel bearing is the problem, the same for turning left, the right front bearing would be the problem. If the noise stays the same and changing on acceleration or deceleration the problem may be more serious, possible a final drive issue like a bad pinion bearing ring and pinion gears.

Loud noise from front axel as i drive

sounds like the cv joints have gone bad on axle, get underneath and grab the axle and see if it wiggles or moves. if its a howling noise, its a wheel bearing!

I'am trying to take the transaxle out of the transmission to fix an oil leak

Remove the wheel cover and loosen the drive axel hub nut. loosen the the wheel lug nuts raise the vehicle and support it well. NOTE: you will have to be working under the car be very careful. remove the drive axel hub nut. To prevent the hub from turning, insert a screwdriver thru the brake caliper and into one of the cooling slots on the rotor. remove the control arm-to-steering knuckle. Check for the ABS sensor and remove it out of your way. Separate the drive axel from the hub. If stuck remove the brake caliper and rotor. Push the axel out of the hub with a puller or you can use a good solid broom handle and drive it out. If you are removing the right side axel you will need a slide hammer and adaptor to separate the axel from the trans. If you are removing the left side, carefully pry the axel out of the trans. with a large pry-bar positioned between the inner CV joint and the trans. case. Use the subframe as a pivot point. Hold the CV joints so they do not separate inside the rubber if going to reuse them. Lubricate the new seal with multi-purpose grease before you install it.

I just bought a 2000 montero sport and i cant tell if its 4 wheel drive...any signs to look 4?

There should be a second shift knob for 2-wheel to 4-wheel drive, also front axel will have differential with driveshaft from transfercase.

There is a humming sound coming from the front end of my 1999 oldmobile alero. Only happens when the car is moving. I dont hear itat idle or even when pushing the gas at idle. could it be my transmission...

Hello! If the humming noise is speed related(gets louder as vehicle speed increases)check front wheel bearings. If the noise goes away when turning one way or the other then it will most likely be in the front wheel bearing. If you turn the wheel(while moving)to the right and the noise goes away it is on the right side. If you turn the wheel to the left and the noise goes away its on the left side. Hope this information helps!

There is a humming sound front the front right side when you are driving. it lessens as you decrease your speed. it does not hum at an ilde or if you rev it up

Sound's like a wheel bearing on the way out. To check jack up the wheel with a hand tthe top and other on the bottom try shaking the wheel in aqnd out. If their is'nt movement then with it in nutral spin the wheel with your hand you should hear it. Another tip and this has happened to me I changed a front wheel bearing still had the hum. Took it back and told the autofactors it was faulty.Got another one same hum. A friend came with me on the second trial put the passenger side window down and listned he said he thought it was the back. Jacked up the back and sure enough it was the problem. So don't feel I'm trying to offend you but it happened to me so thought it better to pss it on. Hope I was of help to you.Cheers

Have a chirping sound front left ,wheel went drivin

had a break job lately? it might be the squeakers on break pads telling you its time for breaks. or if its 4 wheel drive could be a CV joint on front axel going bad, or wheel bearing going bad too.
