Drive Shaft Noises: When operating a vehicle to verify a complaint. Keep in mind that other components could be At Fault. A worn wheel bearing, squeaking spring, defective tire, transmission, or differential troubles could be at fault. You must use your knowledge of each system to detect which component is causing the trouble. Drive shaft noises are usually caused by worn U- joints, slip joint wear, or a faulty center support bearing. Drive shaft noises and possible causes are as follows: · Grinding and squeaking from the drive shaft is frequently caused by worn universal joints. The joints become dry, causing the rollers to wear. The unlubricated, damaged rollers then produce a grinding or squeaking sound, as they operate on the scored cap and cross surfaces. · A clunking sound, when going from acceleration to deceleration or deceleration to acceleration, may be caused by slip yoke problems. The splines may be worn. The yoke transmission extension housing bushing may also be worn. This will let the yoke move up and down with changes in drive line torque. An excessively worn U-joint or differential problem can also cause a similar noise. · A whining sound from the drive shaft is sometimes caused by a dry, worn center support bearing. Since this bearing makes complete revolutions. it will make a different sound than a bad universal joint. A high pitched. More constant, whine will usually come from a faulty center support bearing. Any other abnormal sound should be traced using your knowledge of mechanics. A stethoscope and the vehicles service manual troubleshooting chart.
Check your universal joints!
Drive shaft play/possible worn/bad ujoints /driveshaft
My first thought is that the wheel bearing is failing....replace it soon! The other idea is the front half shaft CV Joint is failing. ( the front wheel drive..drive shaft on the side the noise comes from)
None. Every engine has a drive shaft, which connects to the transmission, and ultimately causes the wheels to turn.
The chances are the shaft in question is most likely made of aluminium. The "tube"of the shaft will carry "noise" of the drive train. The covering is there to help limit the noise and vibration. It is more for dampening noise than a structural covering.
Typical U-Joint noise. Makes noise in reverse but not in drive. Check both front and rear U-joints of the drive shaft. If one is bad replace both. You do not want to go through R&R of the drive shaft twice.
Bearings, cv shaft, or brakes.
One cause of a popping noise from the front end while backing up in cold weather is the drive shaft. A mechanic can help find the problem.
Possible failed u-joint.
The Crank shaft turns and causes the cam shaft to turn, the pumps to turn, the alternator to turn, the transmission gears to turn, the transmission causes the drive shaft to turn, the drive shaft causes the differential to turn (in rear wheel drive models) this turns the axles and the axles turn the wheels. In a front wheel model, the transmission turns the axles shaft that turns the wheels. In a 4x4 the transmission splits to turn the front drive shaft and the rear drive shaft. (then the differential and the axles etc. The other thing that is counted is the steering wheel but it never really completes a whole revolution.
drive shaft carrier bearing needs to be replaced
Need to check the rear u-joint in the drive shaft.
it might be your drive shaft or transmission going out.
it could be a bad universal joint.
If you meant "Why is there a vibration, or vibration like sound when I'm driving" it is because either the drive-shaft is dented or one of the balancing weights is removed. Or basically it is not balanced, therefore vibration occurs.
A drive shaft allows torque to enter a motor. Louis Renault of France was the inventor of the drive shaft. He invented the drive shaft in 1898.
I;m not sure if this the prob. but when you lifted the jeep did you re-align the wheels? Or the drive shaft could be at to much of a angle for the u-joints. with a lift the drive shaft will probably need to be lengthend. Most of these items will cause noise.
When gasoline is burned in an engine, it causes the pistons to go up and down. The pistons then turn the cam shaft which turns the transmission and drive shaft. The drive shaft turns the wheels after the car is put into gear.
The drive shaft may need to be tightened
Possible a failing U-joint.
There is something serious wrong, please have it checked by a knowledgeable person.
I heard it was an intermediate steering shaft and cost around 130.00 dollars
Possibly a broken motor mount? Depends what kind of vibration you are feeling Have you checked the tires for blisters? What is the angle of difference between the transmission tail shaft and the drive shaft? Has the drive shaft been balanced?
