QUOTE::::On the side of the transmission there will be a plug. remove the plug and check the fluid level. If fluid pours out when you remove it, that means the transmission is full.. if not, add fluid through this hole till it pours out.
This information is completely wrong! There is no fill plug on the escort GT manual trans.. the fill hole and level check are the speed sensor... remove the 10mm bolt twist and pull up the speed sensor, re-fill, and if the plastic gear on the speed sensor is wet, it is full.
how to change a cv joint on 96 escort
its not the trans but the u joints
The ball joints connect the hub to the control arm. They are the load carrying part for the weight on the vehicle.
The CV joints on a 1996 Ford Aerostar can be replaced by removing the nuts and bolts on the tires. Next, cotter pins, lower ball joints, and the outer joint will need to be removed. Then a pry bar can be placed between the transmission and the inner joint, which will make it easy to pull out.
The answer to this Question is that there are 46 or 45 joints in the human body. x3
It will be added to the transmission.
You don't they're greased and sealed at the factory
Worn U joints, flex disks, or CV joints.
A car can shake because of a problem in the transmission although this usually is not the problem. I will assume it shakes while it is idling or just starting out. It can also shake due to broken motor or transmission mount(s), bad u joints, a loose harmonic balancer, an unbalanced driveshaft or problems in the rear differential.
Possibly weak u-joints or transmission mounts
Yes, It is in the way.
With driveshaft removed check the universal joints for play or binding.
its in the transmission where the cv joints enter in thata about it
motorcraft . com lists the same lower ball joint part number for the 1997 and 2002 Ford Escort ( Motorcraft MCS 104185 )
Motor mounts transmission Universal joints Differential CV joints Springs Struts
Joints affected by arthritis can be removed but arthritis as such can not be removed or cured.
Universal joints allow a drive shaft to constantly change angles while transmitting rotary motion from the transmission to the front or rear differential.
The CV joints on a 1995 Ford Taurus can be replaced by removing the front tires, and the nuts on the lower ball joint. Next, the lower ball joint will need to be removed and the CV joint can be removed.
Mark driveshaft, transmission splines, and differential yoke. So that installation will maintain factory balance remove and discard small "u" bolts from differential yoke pry driveshaft out of differential yoke pull drivshaft out of transmission spline shaft bring driveshaft to machine shop to have old universal joints pressed out of shaft and new ones installed or use vise and sockets to drive "U" joints out of driveshaft re-install driveshaft in same position as removed using new "U" bolts
The ball joints on a gm vehicle are not a "do-it-yourselfer" type of job. some ball joints need to be removed by grinding the studs off and using an air impact hammer to drive the studs out.. other ball joints can be removed with wrenches. my recommendation to you, would be to take your vehichle to your local gm dealer. Have the service department inspect the vehichle,and give you an estimate on the needed repairs.
Control arm bushings.
replace your CV joints (constant velocity joints) It's the two (or sometimes only one) 'knuckles' on your drive shaft under the van
Ball joints are in the front suspension, it is basically what the wheel assembly pivots on when you turn. Universal joints are on the ends of the drive shaft in a rear wheel drive vehicle. At the transmission and rear end. They give the drive line some flexibility. The same principal is in front wheel drive but are referred to as constant velocity joints, or CV joints.
If the transmission has electronic controls, then a module could be bad. If not, then the transmission could need a rebuild. If it is a front wheel drive, check the cv joints for damage.
There are no u-joints on the venture van. It has CV joints that are sealed with rubber boots and cannot be serviced. They can only be removed and rebuilt or replaced, etc
