SOURCE: Crown Vic will turn over but not start

first do you hear your fuel pump running? if you don't more then likely the relay may have went bad. second check your connection to your coil's..make sure there clean and tight..and getting back to the fuel problem if you hear your pump running then it could be the fuel filter clog...try this and let me know....

SOURCE: spider gears fell on rear differential 95 ford explorer

It's not easy to put them back, but if you get the side gears in position with the axles bumped out as far as you can, the smaller spider gears can be "walked" into place. Try having your buddy rotate one of the wheels slowly until each one fits in. It's tricky but you'll get it.

How do I replace the rear end wheel bearing on driver side? It's a 2007 Crown Victoria. I was driving it to work one day and the back end locked up. It will drive forward but it makes the most horrific...

#1. A wheel bearing should not lock up the rear end. #2. Sounds like you have a far worse problem, probably in the differential. To replace the wheel bearing you need to remove the diff cover, take out the spider gear pin remove the locking c clip and remove the axle. Obviously the left rear wheel and rotor and caliper have to be removed as well. then the bearing ,which is pressed into the housing needs to be removed. If the bearing is that bad the axle will need to be replaced as well.

Trying to remove rear axle from 1996 chev. pickup 1500 4x4

you don`t say what if anything you have done so far or what the problem is your having.once the wheel and brake drum is off you will have to remove the differential cover(gear oil will come out),you will have to remove the spider gear lock pin from the gear carrier by finding the locking bolt that holds it in place.with this remove DO NOT TURN THE CARRIER GEAR ASSEMBLY or you will be re-installing spider gears and shims back in and must be installed in the proper place.then push the axle into the differential and you may the C clip fall if not remove the C clip to unlock the axle and pull the axle straight out without turning it as you pull.install in reverse order.

How to remove rear axel from ford crown victoria tne axel is loose and making noise leaking fluid i think it neds a new seal

do u mean the axle has "play" when u grab the tire and wiggle it up and down?? if it has play, then it propbably needs an AXLE SEAL AND AXLE will have to carefully inspect the axle itself where the bearing rides for any gouging or damage. THIS JOB requires a decent amount of mechanical skill. 1ST you need to remove the rear end COVER and drain out the gear oil into a drain pan.2ND remove the brake caliper and rotor . 3RD spin the" ring and pinion " around until u see a 5/16 bolt that passes thru from the pass. side to the drivers side. u have to remove this bolt. u will need to "hold "the gears from turning in order to break loose this bolt. 4TH remove this bolt and slide out the large metal ""PIN" that 'divides" the rear end in half. NOW CAREFULLY WITHOUT TURNING THE REAR END SPIDER GEARS,PUSH IN THE AXLE TOWARDS THE INSIDE SO U CAN REMOVE THE "C-CLIP" AT INNER END OF AXLE. now u can slide out axle and youll be able to replace seal and if needed axle bearing. let me know if u need more info.

1987 Prelude weird slip issues.

The axle isn't seated all the way into the transmission.Inside the transmission is the differential,the axle goes into a side gear,called a spider gear,and slips into splines inside the spider gear.Once in to a certain point,there is a retainer clip on the end of the axle that pops out when seated all the way into the spider gear in the trans,and this holds,or retains the axle in the trans.If whoever worked on the car didn't have the axle fully seated to where the clip popped out,then the axle will eventually slide back out of the trans,disengaging the splines,and causing the vehicle to not move.Good luck.
