Rear end will not free wheel and reverse not moving very fast.

Two problems, rear end will not disengage to free wheel, mechanism on differential seems to be froze up, any suggestions on breaking it loose. Number two, reverse does not move very fast and in order to stop forward motion you have to move trans drive almost into reverse position. Any thoughts????

You did not say what kind of mower but mine has a rod sticking out of the back that you pull out to allow it to freewheel

SOURCE: Hydrostatic mower goes in reverse but not forward. Only 73 hrs on it!

On my hydrostatic there is an adjustment on the forward/back lever which can be made to run all reverse or all forward. Normal setting gives both of course. Look at that adjustment. Maybe something let go.

SOURCE: Rear end noise from front wheel drive car

At that mileage it could be, and most likely is given your description of the noise. I assume it reduces in volume as you slow down. If you can find a quite piece of road drive up to where the noise is apparent and lightly swerve from left to right. (Don't roll the car!! ) If the noise reduces as you swerve left then its the left bearing. If its when you swerve right that the noise reduces its the right bearing. If its both the only way is to jack the rear up and spin the wheels as fast as you can and listen. If there's a hint of a rumble from it, its that bearing or both. It should be completely quite apart from the slight hiss as the shoes rub on the drum.
35K may not seem much but if you don't know the history of the car it could have hit a bad pot hole or even had a knock on a kerb.
I have replaced bearing with a lot less miles than yours.

Cheers John

If you removed the pinion and only replaced one of the bearings that was a mistake. You need to replace both at the same time. Also since it is a Dana differential you should have replace the crush sleeve also as this set the correct preload on the pinion bearings.

SOURCE: E4OD Trans stays in OD no matter where the shifter position is.

Transmission Description The E4OD transmission is a fully automatic, electronically controlled, four-speed unit with a torque converter clutch. The main operating components of the E4OD transmission include a torque converter clutch, six multiple-disc friction clutches, one band, one sprag one-way clutch and two roller one-way clutches that provide for the desired function of three planetary gear sets. Transmission gear selection in the (D) range and converter clutch operation is controlled by the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650). Operating conditions are relayed to powertrain control module by various sensors throughout the vehicle. The powertrain control module compares these conditions with electronically stored parameters and logically determines how the transmission should operate. A torque converter (7902) couples the engine to the transmission gearset via the input shaft (7017) and the torque converter impeller hub. The impeller hub provides engine rpm to the positive displacement pump. The flow from the pump is proportional to engine rpm, and excess pump capacity is exhausted back to the pump inlet. The input shaft transfers power into the transmission gearset. The power input is controlled by the application of the torque converter clutch, which is scheduled through the powertrain control module. The application of the piston plate effectively replaces the hydraulic coupling between the converter cover and the turbine with a mechanical coupling between the converter cover and the turbine hub. This mechanical coupling helps improve fuel economy and wide-open throttle performance by eliminating converter slip. Transmission shift selection and torque converter clutch operation are controlled by the PCM. They are calibrated to provide the optimal transmission state. This state is commanded to the transmission solenoid body. In the (D) range, automatic operation of all four gears is possible. The transmission control switch, located on the vehicle's shift lever disables overdrive operation and enables automatic operation through the first three gears. Whenever the ignition switch is turned on, the vehicle will automatically provide overdrive operation regardless of the switch position the last time the vehicle was running. Manual gear selection is available in the 1 and 2 range. Second gear is commanded when the gearshift selector lever is in the 2 range and when downshifted into the 1 range at speeds above approximately 56 km/h (35 mph) (for diesel 48 km/h [30 mph]). First gear is commanded in the 1 range at start-ups and when downshifted into 1 range below approximately 56 km/h (35 mph) (for diesel 48 km/h [30 mph]). Any reference to intermediate brake drum or direct clutch cylinder are one and the same.

I think this is your problem:

Programmable Speedometer/Odometer Module (PSOM): Description: The programmable speedometer/odometer module receives input from the rear brake anti-lock sensor, which is mounted on the rear axle differential housing. The PSOM processes this input signal information and relays it to the powertrain control module and the speed control module. This signal tells the powertrain control module the vehicle speed in miles per hour (mph). Used as an input in determining shift scheduling and electronic pressure control. Symptoms: Harsh engagements, firm shift feel, abnormal shift schedule, unexpected downshifts may occur at closed throttle, abnormal torque converter clutch operation or engages only at wide-open throttle (WOT). May flash transmission control indicator lamp. Diagnostic Trouble Codes: 452, P0500, P1500, P1501, P0503

SOURCE: John Deere L120 transmission high pitch noise and no forward move

Try jacking the unit up. Start it up and try moving pushing the forward and reverse back and forth and see if it does it then. It sounds like an oil way in the hydrostatic unit has a check valve stuck. Of course make sure that the fluid lever is up. Hope this will help you. donnyb60

Can 4 wheel & differential be used together


If you have four wheel drive engaged, engine power is routed through the transmission to the transfer case to the front and rear differentials. When four wheel drive is disengaged power goes only to the rear differential.

Disconnected rear differential


You must have a 4 Wheel-drive. You should have a driveshaft for that end of the vehicle and you should not let the Mechanic keep it. The rear unit must have a bad Pinion bearing or more damaged parts. Some of parts can "freewheel" without having power going through them.

But the metal shavings from broken parts can travel inside the differential and cause more problems. You don't always need the 4-wheel drive function and you do not have it since the Mechanic disconnected it.

Sometimes it can be what is called an "axle" bearing. Each side has this part so you have 2. The noise levels for this part can also change when the 4 wheel drive is engaged.

Make sure the rear differential has lube. Read the Web for articles about your vehicle. Search "2003 Ford Escape rear differential".

There is a Salvage yard site called Car-parts.com which is good for locating used parts like differentials. One would need to match the same gear ratio as the front.

1989 Suzuki Sidekick rear differentials


GET IT TO A MECHANIC!! Something is loose or about to collapse! Remember that vibration and noise can travel away from the source so get the mechanic to start in that corner.
You need to get the following checked!
-Prop shaft mountings at transfer box.
-Prop shaft mountings at differential.
-Prop shaft bearings.
-Differential condition and oil level.
-Drive shafts at differential end.
-Drive shafts at the wheel end.
-All flexing joints in the system including UV joints and CV joints.

It's a metalic noise when put into gear. Stops for a moment as it shifts to next gear. Goes away when it reaches final drive gear. There is a vibration while shifting as well.Had a good mechanic friend...


Hi

If your transmission makes a metallic clunking noise or vibrates while shifting gears during normal driving, then the transmission mounts may be loose. Check that area to fix the problem.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

I have a honda passport 2000 rear wheel drive,do i have a rearend or is its call a differential?


I think I know what you are asking; This is called a rear wheel drive vehicle and uses a differential which IS the axle or "rear end" (because it is in the rear end of the vehicle). What a differential is is simply a set of gears that obviously drive the rear wheels but, when you turn a corner the wheel speed changes. One will be going faster than the other depending on which way you turn. This gear set by design, allows the different speeds to not be noticed by the driver and not wear down tyres or break components. Pretty cool huh?! If you are having any issues or need further info, please let me know.

What fluid do I put in the rear differential for my 01 Ford Explorer Sport?


If you can read the tag on your rear differential cover it will tell you there.
But just in case it's rusted beyond visibility here is what you need.
A traction lock (limited slip) differential takes the synthetic 75w140. You may need some of Fords limited slip additive to prevent the clutch plates from grabbing as well.
Conventional differential takes 80w90 no additive required.
If you are not sure what yours is jack up the rear end, support it properly and block the wheels to keep it from rolling..
If yours is 4 wheel drive make sure it is disengaged and put it in neutral.
Do not start engine. Grab one rear wheel and rotate it. If the wheel on the opposite side rotates the same direction it is traction lock
