It's usually much more inexpensive to replace the entire drive shaft than to repair a worn cv joint. The new drive shaft will come with new cv joints and new boots.

The repair on the transmission line will depend on where it is. If the leak is at a coupling then the joint may be able to be tightened. If the line itself if leaking or split then it will have to be replaced.

The medical term for a joint repair is arthroplasty.

If it pulls to the side of the transmission it could have a transmission problem in the future or a bad cv joint on that side.

The surgical repair or replacement of a joint is known as arthroplasty. Replacement of a joint may also be referred to as prosthetic arthroplasty or total joint replacement.

This is not an easy repair. Get5 a manual on your car from the parts store and it will help on the next repair.

If the transmission is the 3-speed 31TH, the speed sensor is located on the back of the transmission, follow the right side CV halfshaft, and the sensor is mounted right near where the inner CV joint splines into the differential. If it's the 4-speed transmission (not likely), it would be located on the front of the transmission. I suggest getting a Haynes Repair Manual, it should verify the location.

If it is a manual transmission, there will be a fill plug 1/2 way up on the side. Remove the plug and insert your little finger to the first joint. Bent it to the first joint and you should feel the fluid. If not then add. If it is an automatic, warm up the engine Put the transmission in park and check the level.

You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

Usually a bad U Joint - Universal joint connecting drive shaft to transmission & rear drive axle - there is a U joint at each end of the drive shaft - repair this ! Thew drive shaft can actually come off the car when driving - can be very dangerous.

If the boot is torn, then more than likely the CV joint needs replacing. It at the very least needs to be inspected. You can replace the boot with a repair kit, but I would have the joint inspected.

If you are referring to the driveshaft from the transmission to the rear differential in the All-Wheel-Drive models, I'm wondering if you have an after-market U-Joint. Mine don't have any such caps, and the repair manual doesn't address them.

don't repalce just one joint. purchase a rebuilt axle. It will be quicker and easier. Go to your local library to find a repair manual.

Most 3 speed manual transmissions without overdrive have 2 shafts, a mainshaft and a counter shaft or ( jackshaft). The main shaft is the shaft that the drive shaft is coupled to by a universal joint at the output of the transmission. When the transmission is in 3rd gear the output of the transmission is the same RPMs as the engine or the input of the transmission. So in 3rd gear or 4th gear in a 4 speed the mainshaft becomes as one from the input from the clutch to the output to the driveshaft

There is a fill plug with a 24mm head on it in the transmission case near the left side inner CV joint. It's esier to see with the left front wheel removed. Hope this helps!

It is fairly simple, easier on a manual transmission. If you search for subaru forums, a lot of them have do it yourself write ups, with pictures even!

I assume that you are referring to a manual transmission as you said oil and not fluid. On the side of the transmission, 1/2 way up, you should see a fill plug. Remove it and insert your little finger to the first joint. If you touch fluid or it runs out then it is ok. If not then fill to the edge.
