What does a broken differential sound like free
A driveshaft connects the rear differential mechanism to the transmission or transfer case, transferring the engines power to the rear wheels. The rear differentials role is simple: change the powers direction from longitudinal (along the car) and direct it to the wheels.
Diagnosing Differential Noise. Regular clunking or loud clicking every few feet may indicate a broken ring or pinion gear tooth. Banging, clicking or clunking while cornering can be caused by broken cornering gears commonly called spider gears, lack of sufficient positraction lubrication, or worn positraction clutches.
Broken teeth on a single pinion gear may not disable the differential completely, but enough busted teeth on a ring or pinion will. On the axle gear, broken teeth will result in a complete loss of power transfer when turning in one direction or the other.
it sounds like a humming or whinning noise, what year is the truck if its from like 01 or up those trucks have a lot of wheel bearinig problems that some one might misdiagnose as a differential
Aug 08, 2018 I guess that would depend on what part failed first. You have all kinds of bearings in there aside from the ring and pinion mating surface. The bad news is if you put oil gear lube back in it, it will still make about the same noise as the damag
Full Answer. Another common sound is a banging or clunking sound while turning a corner. This symptom can also be related to insufficient lubrication, broken spider gears or worn components, such as positraction or clutches. Broken spider gears can cause the differential to freeze and make a noisy crunching sound.
