    How to fix movement on stub shaft in transaxle
     
    • Jimm
      6/1/2013 Jimm
      It depends on which direction is the movement or play. If the movement of the shaft is inside to outside - or outside to inside - (along the length or central axis of the shaft) to the transaxle - then the shaft assembly must be replaced. If the excess play or movement is in a radial direction (in a circle around the shaft bearing), then either the shaft assembly or the wheel bearings may need to be replaced.

      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse, www.carpartswarehouse.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the replacement CV axle shaft asemblies from around $40.00 to $44.00 (each) for your vehicle.
      Keep in mind the CV axle shaft assemblies are always replaced in pairs (one each side) due to mileage / wear / age considerations.

      It could be a solenoid problem. Get a scan done at local auto store for free and see if there's a P-number which would solve the mystery. I had a Dodge Grand caravan once myself and when I had the trans. fluid changed at a trans. shop it came back sticking in low gear.I then had a rebuilt trans. installed.Your van is 13 yrs.It may need a trans.

      Bad shock absorbers can cause wheel-hop but I can say if it applies to your situation.

    What can make the transmission fluid blow back out of the fill tube.
    It's blowing transmission fluid out of the fill tube after we drive it for a min like there is pressure build up.Its not leaking out anywere else just coming back out the fill tube.

      If you are blowing oil out the transmission dip stick / fill tube, then you need to check the transmission cooler in the radiator and make sure it is not stopped up. This usually happens if the transmission fluid is getting too hot, or the transmission fluid level is over filled.

    Check engine light and SRS light came on at same and the reverse lights and speedometer don't work.
    P0705 code. Transmission range sensor. Changed it but didn't help any. What else can it be as far as sensors I can replace?

      Check fuse # 3 which is a 7.5 amp fuse that is a multi-purpose fuse. It supplies battery voltage for the reverse lights and the SRS module. Fuse #2 (also 7.5 amp) supplies battery voltage for the speedometer. Both these fuses have to be checked to confirm that not only is the fuse good, but that the fuses have battery voltage on both sides of the fuse. Update the post when you know.

    1st gear-no problem. All other gears, the engine will rev, but the truck hesitates like i should be in a lower gear.
    This is especially noticed when I need torque, like going up a hill. The engine revs, but it's not translating over to the transmission. It feels like the trans has to slowly catch up to the engine. Shifting is smooth and clutch pedal seems normal.

      It sounds as if it's either losing engine power or the clutch is slipping.But you say it pulls fine in first gear?
    • frankiedonnn

      Maybe it's an intermittent gas delivery problem or electrical misfire.If the gas tank is low when going uphill the pump won't get any gas.Just food for thought.

      I'm thinking more along the clutch/trans part. It does it on a full tank as well. When u step on the gas, the engine will rev up and then slowly the truck seems like it's catching up. It's like I'm in a gear or two higher than I should be...but I'm not. There's no grinding/banging. The clutch is not loose pedal is not loose and engages as soon as I step on it. It may be time for the shop. Thanks for your thoughts!

      I have never seen anything but a new transmission solve this. In my 36 years fixing vehicles of all kinds.

      Time for a rebuild bud! Your clutches in your transmission are worn out. The reason why it went into gear before, was because the clutch material that had worn off of the clutches was suspended in the transmission fluid, and would at least allow your truck to move. Now that you have put new fluid in, and put a new filter in, there is no clutch material in the fluid and the clutches can't do anything but slip past each other. Tow your truck to the nearest transmission shop and have them take a look. I can just about guarantee this is the case. a rebuild for a 4x4 ram around MN is looking at about $1,500-$2200 with new torque converter, removal and installation at a small town shop. Dealership would probably be double that.

      My experience comes from working at a small transmission shop in Alexandria, MN. Best of luck to you, and I hope your wallet doesn't take too big of a ding!
      P.S.
      -If the place you have your transmission rebuilt at doesn't offer to put a new torque converter in, find a different shop. Never re-use a torque converter.
      -Make sure the transmission lines get flushed
      -Have the shop change your transfer case fluid while they have the transmission out. Good preventative maintenance! and I can't remember off hand if the transfer case shares the same transmission fluid or not.

    Whining noise in trans.while driving.
    Does a whining noise coming from auto. trans. necessarily mean that the trans. is on the way out?The transmission is still shifting fine but I wonder.

      change fluid and filter and see if that corrects problem. if not, pump probably making whine and there will be a rebuild in your near future.

      Thanks for your reply.A B.G.flush was done on the trans. two years in succession and when I check the fluid it is always clean.Only when the vehicle is parked for long periods fluid leaks from what seems to be a solenoid at the top rear of the trans.Iwould like to change the seal but don't want to trouble it before I learn more about it as I'm not sure as to how to get it out.The van was off the road for 3mths. with brake trouble and a lot of fluid leaked out.Of couse I replaced the fluid and i
