Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hi. Were the u-joints on the drive shaft replaced as well?
You can't really lube a u-joint unless it has grease fittings on it. You need to remove the end caps to supply lube to the roller bearings inside it. If you are in neutral and push it everything is still moving except the drive shift. The front axles will be moving. It is possible that the seal on the back of transmission for the driveshaft is squeaking also. Can you duplicate the noise with the vehicle on a lift? completely off the ground.
Ok sounds good. Let me know what happens and please rate my service. Thank you.
