Question about 1991 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

I have a 91 Taurus GL 3.0 V6 w/auto trans. On transaxle half shafts, do I have to take the passenger side off first. Also do I need to use a differential rotator tool to drive out the other half shaft. Also my manual says I need to replace strut to knuckle bolt, hub axle nut and tie rod bolt. Is this true? Thanks, Steve

You can take out either half shaft first. Doesn't matter. Yes you should install a new axle nut, if you bought new/rebuilt halfshafts they come with one. I have never had to use a special tool to get the shafts out. I also haven't had to replace the strut to knuckle bolt.

Where is the vss for a 1998 taurus?


It is located on top of the trans towards the passengers side towards the fire wall area,but there is a cover on the sensor, depending on which transaxle you have, the AX4S lays down towards the transaxle and the AX4N stands up on the transaxle, here are the diagrams, hope this helps. 9e31ebc4-5508-47ab-a9cc-66f64df2a423.gif acdb65d5-b3a1-4a6c-8775-722fc24d8285.gif ad2245cb-c2aa-44b2-ad15-ebec5ec9619c.gif

In an auto trans the diff is the same grade fill as the trans, Dexron III.

How do you remove the cv joint on the left side from the transmission?


YOU NEED A PULLER ON THE OUTSIDE WHEEL HUB PUSHING THE HALF SHAFT FROM THE FRONT HUB,THEN TAP THE SHAFT UNION AT THE JOINT CASE WITH A PLASTIC HAMMER TO REMOVE THE HALFSHAFT AND INNER SHAFT FROM THE TRANSAXLE. IF YOU HAVE AN INNER SHAFT REMOVE THE HALFSHAFT BY SETTING UP A PULLER ON THE OUTSIDE WHEEL HUB AND PRESSING THE HALFSHAFT FROM THE FRONT HUB. AFTER PRESSING THE OUTER SHAFT INSERT A PRYBAR BETWEEN THE TRANSAXLE CASE AND THE HALFSHAFT AND PRY THE HALF SHAFT FROM THE TRANSAXLE DONT PULL ON THE SHAFT.

Please describe your how to change a drive shaft on a nissan quest 1997 problem:


two axles, different for ach side. Passenger side has a carrier on the half shaft, driver side is one solid link. Loosen lug nuts, the you need a 36mm socket to loosen the center nut on the drive shaft, same for both sides. Remove the cotter pin and retainer before loosening the center nut. Jack up the vehicle and secure with jack stands. Remove wheels. Remove brake calipers and tie up out of the way. Loosen and remove lower strut bolts (2) and lower ball joint bolts (3). Swing center knuckle out and off the drive shaft. On passenger side, loosen carrier bolts (3) halfway up the drive shaft, above the exhaust pipe and crossmember. This is a pain on the 94, but easier on later models. The passenger shaft has two half shafts joined at the carrier. No retainer clip is used, so pull on the end of the shaft and it will come out. Iff the inner CV boot is puked, it will probably come out in two pieces. You may have to use a large screwdriver to pry the inner shaft out of the transaxle. The driver side does not use a carrier and will come out with a strong pull. It does use a retainer clip on the inside end of the driveshaft. You can get new driveshafts with cvs as an assembly at most auto parts stores, about 60-80 bucks with exchange. Be sure the new driver side shaft has the new retainer clip on it. Assembly is reverse of dissassembly, but make sure to tighten everything up good.

I have a 97 trans sport and when i drive it it pops real loud, and almost feels like passenger side front end jumps


check your front wheel drive axles/half shafts, see if the rubber boots that cover the bearings are not torn or missing.. sounds like you might need to replace the axle/half shaft on the passengers side
