I get a loose feeling clunk when going over bumps and potholes, I have high pitched whine on turn. Thick sludge is present on driveline/ujoint side of diff housing. Previous owner replaced broken trans with rebuilt one from wreaking yard before I purchased it. It shifts smooth but now diff sounds like axle on right is loose and sloppy and wheel is following suit as well can hear clunk at diff housing as well. No axle seal leaks at the wheel bearings can be found by my inspection. What should I do? Have done similar repair on my Toy 4Runner but only replaced bearings and seals with inspection of diff showed low fluid and no metal shavings present in drained fluid.

Even after driving 5 miles the front air system only managed to blow lukewarm air. The engine was at normal operating temperature after a couple miles. What do I need to do to resolve this issue?

tranny problem was working going fine and just failed

To clarify my previous questions, I want to say that 1 time when I was on the frwy, I had to gun it to get on and after that , the engine made some noise. Then , something started bouncing off the ground in the back and making a metal sound on the concrete for a few sec. Esp. when I went over a bridge. It got worse and worse, then the brakes started to lock for a few sec. then release. Lock again and for a few more sec. and then again for a min. and now they won't release.
Should I just junk it or is it be repaired at a cost less than the value of the van?

I didn't get to finish from my earlier question. With frozen brakes, rear end busted, I Have to tow it.

AS the rear end started making noise, the brakes started to freeze up and then release. How much to fix this?

have 96 aerostar van

During steady throllle or cruise control the vehicle stumbles and won't take throttle input. If I stop and leave in park it idles fine and runs smoothly through the RPM range. If the key is cycled off then on it will run for good for several minutes and them it will stumble again.The vehicle has 227,000 miles and was very well kept and maintained.

when am driving i hear some noise (it sounds like something rubbing or hitting) and i think it comes from the wheels, i replaced the outer wheel bearings about a year ago on the rear tires, the noise stops as i slow down, because am driving i cant tell where exactly comes from....

SOmetimes when starting up my Van, before engaging Transmission, I will hear a rumbling coming from what seems to be passenger middle to back side. The rumbling will go away after driving. This has been going on for 20,000 miles.

Is it necessary to remove engine block?

can the rack be rebuilt?

i have a 97 aerostar van. It is very dependable but the power steering has been leaking for a while. It has gotten really bad now. Can the rack be rebuilt?

sensor. it cuts off at stop lights and when making turns. when trying to re-start it, it sounds like it is sucking air. if it sets for 30 minutes to 1 hour it will crank back up, but still cuts off shortly after that.
