HOwdy got a bit of a prob with my car i think any way ill tell yas and tell me what yas think,
last night was driving round with a mate we both got EL's anyway we found this hell big area where we could throw the cars around and not hit anything, and it had been raining so the road was hell wet and it opted for some fun to be had :D anyway off i went into it with some doughies and went round a few times and stopped 1st up me steering went really heavy after i stoped then i came good so i thought oh ok, then i went to move and it sounded like the diff was crunching and clicking so i let it cool down and started it back up after about 45 mins with no sounds but all the way home when i turned it grinded and screched when going around corners but eventually went away, this morning i got in it and drove down the street and round some corners etc and there was not a noise to be heard from the diff or gearbox area so im up the creek anyideas??? reckon get the diff looked at straight away????
anyhelp would be well appreciated
do you think maybe it just got really really hot and just needed too cool down or something???it pissin me off cause im thinking its gonna cost me a bit of $$$$ me dont have, spose its what i get for being an idiot
Doughnuts do distroy diffs and diffs aren't cheap. If you have killed it you have yourself to blame.
If the engine idles and revs ok and when the car is stationary if the steering wheel turn from lock to lock, then I doubt it is either of those. Put the rear of the car on stands.
Start car and with hand brake off, put car into drive, take ya foot of the brake and let engine idle, don't rev. Listen to rear of car.
Are both wheels spinning? Same direction?
Is there a gringing or whining noise?
Power by me 360rwkw
