1994 Chevrolet Silverado Front end shake in 2WD.

Showing 2 out of 3 Posts | Show 1 Hidden Posts
Question From Trowber24 on 1994 Chevrolet Silverado Front end shake in 2WD.

Hello. The front end on my Silverado shakes at highway speeds but its only in 2WD. If I put it in 4WD it drives like a dream. Anyone run into this problem before? I am going to check the tie rod ends and ball joints the next time I get it in the garage but I am wondering if anyone has any other suggestion to check? Thanks!

Response From kev2 Top Rated Answer

the 2wd vs 4wd issue is surprising to hear, AND 4wd at highway speeds I question that.

Anyway its BASICS - observe the joints moving as someone rocks steering wheel back and forth the culprit is often easy to spot, notorious for idler arms, I suspect that will yield a worn component. Then I would check ball joints.

In 4WD the only change is internal to the diff housing, simply put a slider connects the R axel to center spool... a stretch how that affects suspension ... maybe maybe bearings.. check the above first

Response From Trowber24

Thanks for the reply! Highway speeds around my home are only 40-45mph so its not all that fast. The fact that it doesn't shake at all in 4WD also was also confusing to me. I'm hoping its something I can fix versus something like a transfer case that I would have to have fixed by a garage. I appreciate the advice, thanks! Anyone else have any experience that might help?

Steering problem

Question From Rwalton5 on Steering problem

2000 toyota tundra, 4.7L . Steering is very hard, as if pump is out. Replaced pump, serpentine belt , rack and pinion , ball joints, shocks. Someone told me it could be the air bag clock spring in the steering wheel as it makes an unusual clicking noise when turning left or right . And ideas? I'm desperate(and running out of $$$). Thanks

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

The clock spring should have nothing to do with the power steering system.

You really need a power steering pressure gauge to determine if you have a pump, rack, or line issue.

With the engine running the level in the reservoir should be lower than with the engine off. Some of those reservoirs have a screen inside that can become plugged up and stave the pump for fluid. If the screen is plugged up, that could mean a hose is coming apart internally.

U-Joint types

Question From HMYtoad on U-Joint types

Hello,
I have a 1984 Chevy K10 with a 5.7 and a bunch of miles.
The truck has a slip yoke attached to the rear drive shaft at the transfer case. The yoke has recently started to leak and I want to replace it. I have a used yoke from the junk yard, but it came off a truck with a driveshaft that uses a U-Joint with an internal ring. My driveshaft and existing yoke use an external snap ring U-Joint. Is there any way to use the new yoke (internal/sealed type joint) with my existing driveshaft (external snap ring type joint)?

Response From Loren Champlain Sr Top Rated Answer

Hi. Slip joints don't "leak". They have a grease fitting that you lubricate with the same type grease that you use for the ball joints and tie rod ends. They do have a seal to keep the grease in, but....Sounds like you may be having an output shaft seal leaking gear oil (or trans. flluid) from the transfer case. Don't know if the replacement slip joint will work..if the splines and the length of the joint are the same, should work, but...Clean the area very well and watch to see, for sure, where the leak originates.

Response From Guest

Thank you for the reply. However, I have confirmed that it is the slip yoke that is leaking. The output shaft seal is new. The oil is sliping down the splined shaft into the slip yoke and slowly leaking out of the pressed fitting at the back of the slip yoke. The fix is easy, just replace the yoke with one that is not damaged. But I need to know if there is a way I can fit a yoke that is designed to use a u-joint with inside retainers to a drive saft that uses a u-joint with outside retaining rings.

Response From DanD

Have someone braze weld the end cap of the original yoke; I’ve done this hundreds of times.
A light tinning of brass over the cap and the edges and you’re done.

Dan.

Response From Guest

I agree, replacement is unnecessary, even a good cleaning and silicone would easily solve that problem

Response From Guest

You would be better off finding the yoke that pairs with the old shaft. Trying to find a u joint to fit the old shaft (external snap ring) & the replacement yoke ( internal snap ring) could be a nightmare.

There is enough differnent options on chevy u joints on factory stuff to make it tough getting the right one the 1st time.

If you can't find the yoke to match your driveline... I would look at finding a different driveline & put all new joints in that.......

2000 Sable making noise when turing steering Wheel

Question From Rick57 on 2000 Sable making noise when turing steering Wheel

2000 Mercury Sable
78K
3.0 DOHC

I know this is suspension but its front wheel drive and I am sure this will not be easy. But here it is:

When I turn the steering wheel left/right it does not matter, it makes a squeel noise, almost like a moan if you know what I mean. Now this happens when I am at a dead stop or moving slow like backing up or just pulling away. It is very loud. It seems to drive and steer fine going down the road.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Rick

Response From Hammer Time

I have run across a problem like this on Taurus/Sables a couple times before. It turned out to be bad upper strut turn plates.
The solution will be new strut plates but I would also replace the struts at the same time.
That should solve your problem.

Response From NJ___Jon

Regaurdless I would check the power steering fluid.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Jon- Look at the date - Hope this is solved by now,

T

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Did I just see that this can make this "squeel/moan" when at a dead stop? That takes the FE parts and brakes out of it and would lead me to belt, belt tension issue - the load of steering is greatest stopped or slow driving and PS pump is probably slipping making the noise.

Moan is more like low PS fluid level. Check that AND belt tension. Tensioner may be bad or belt stretched to limit of range is my best guess with the info,

T

Ps: Simple belt tension test is to see if you can spin alternator by fins - shouldn't be able to easily or at all. Some alts don't have fins so just pick long stretch between pulleys to feel lash/deflection of belt. Engine off - keys out please!

Response From Rick57

It makes the noise at a dead stop yes, only when I turn the wheels in either direction and with the engine off. I just tried that. I can sit in the car with no engine on and turn the steering wheel and it makes the same noise.

Thanks,
Rick

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Ok - forget the belt for this for now. Engine off + noise takes the whole engine out of the picture. You have some part that's dry of grease/lubrication in the steering - duh - and near impossible to pin down from here. You could try hoisting front wheels and turning wheels - listen and check all the front end parts - ball joints, tie rod ends, rack, for anything. Is there a chance you are hearing this noise from the steering column? Some make some plastic to plasic or metal noise between parts that turnwith the wheel and the stationery ones like the housing for the key. Could also be turn signal or other internal parts unseen in column??

Transmission/Clutch problem?

Showing 2 out of 4 Posts | Show 2 Hidden Posts
Question From knaprig on Transmission/Clutch problem?

I just bought a 98 chevy cavalier RS with 197k miles on it. I expected some problems with it, most obvious is the ball joints, that i can fix and diagnose on my own. The car has a 2.2L 4 cylinder in it, manual transmission of course.
Problem is this, although the shifting is..a little rough, which could just mean the clutch needs bled or changed. I can't hardly get it into 5th gear. It goes as far as the shifter allows, and just grinds like its almost there but just not far enough. My first thought was it was the synchronizer, but when i do get it to go into 5th gear, it has never once popped out of gear on me. Could it be a linkage? I really know nothing about transmissions other then how to watch the fluids and how to shift them properly. Any help would be great.

Response From bob1 Top Rated Answer

Just trying to get the ball rolling here, and assuming you have a floor shift, and your hydrolic clutch is working properly, You can start by checking for interference between the shift handle and floor cutout or there may be something restricting travel in the internal shifter componants. You can inspect the shift rail and fork system, synchroniser system and gear clutch teeth for restricted travel. ( sounds like a lot of work to me)

Response From knaprig

from what i have checked there is no restriction. While i was changing the oil today my dad took a look at it and he said the pin in the linkage seems kind of worn out...which would explain why it will sometimes still shift into 5th for me with no problems.
Im not sure what its actually called. Its directly above the transmission and it moves when i move the shifter. I sound like a real retard, i'm not sure what its called so i dont know the part im looking for or if thats the actual problem.

Response From chickenhouse

Sounds like it may be time to get it in the air and have someone take a look. May be just a linkage pin, not major trans work, but get it verified.
