I recently started experiencing a vibration when accelerating particularyly uphill. I raised car and when looking for loose or worn joints found tht the drive axle is loose as it enters one of the boot covered joints. Loud clicking sound as well. Does just the CV joint need to be replaced or is it easier to just replace the entire drive axle. Or are the systems indicating another issue.

water is leaking from under the dash board on the floor board, passenger side. this is due to a clogged line. one mechanic said he could not find the "drain plug." i can hear water "sloshing" around when I turn a corner. this mechanice suggested I take it to the dealership. i don't want to be overcharged and have some idea of what to expect.
I recently bought a 1992 Ford E-150 Conversion van. I replaced the serpentine belt and the air pump and gave it a tune-up. The van was overheating so I also replaced the thermostat, hoses, and radiator. Right after replacing the radiator, the temperature gauge on the instrument panel stopped working. I can't tell if the van is running hot and I am not sure why it stopped working? Can anyone help with my next move?
