Propeller Shaft Diagnosis

INTRODUCTION TO PROPELLER SHAFT DIAGNOSIS

If an abnormal noise is heard from the propeller shaft while driving, some parts of the propeller shaft may be worn or damaged, or some mounting bolts may be loose.

PROPELLER SHAFT DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLESHOOTING STRATEGY

Use these steps to plan your diagnostic strategy. If you follow them carefully, you will be sure that you have exhausted all of the possible ways to find a propeller shaft fault.

1. Gather information from the customer.

2. Verify that the condition described by the customer exists.

3. Find the malfunction by following the Symptom Chart.

4. Verify malfunction is eliminated.

SYMPTOM PROCEDURES

INSPECTION PROCEDURE 1: Noise at Start

DIAGNOSIS

STEP 1. Check if the propeller shaft mounting nuts and the center bearing mounting nuts are loose.

Q: Are the mounting nuts tightened to the specified torque?

YES : Go to Step 2.

NO : Tighten the propeller shaft mounting nuts to 54 +- 5 N*m (40 +- 3 ft-lb). Tighten the center bearing mounting nuts to 41 +- 5 N*m (30 +- 3 ft-lb). Then go to Step 4.

STEP 2. Check the sleeve yoke's spline of the front propeller shaft for wear.

Q: Is wear apparent? YES : Replace the propeller shaft. Then go to Step 4.

NO : Go to Step 3.

STEP 3. Check the propeller shaft for looseness.

Q: Is looseness recognized?

YES : Replace the propeller shaft. Then go to Step 4.

NO : Go to Step 4.

STEP 4. Retest the system.

Q: Is the abnormal noise eliminated?

YES : The procedure is complete.

NO : Recheck from Step 1.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE 2: Noise and Vibration at High Speed

DIAGNOSIS

STEP 1. Check the propeller shaft runout.

Q: Is the measured value within the limit; Front :0.5 mm (0.02 inch) or Rear: 0.8 mm (0.03 inch) ? YES : Go to Step 2.

NO : Replace the propeller shaft. Then go to Step 3.

STEP 2. Check the propeller shaft for looseness.

Q: Is looseness recognized?

YES : Replace the propeller shaft. Then go to Step 3.

NO : Go to Step 3.

STEP 3. Retest the system.

Q: Is the abnormal noise eliminated?

YES : The procedure is complete.

NO : Recheck from Step1.

PROPELLER SHAFT UNIVERSAL JOINT CHECK

PROPELLER SHAFT VISUAL CHECK

1. Place the selector lever to the "N" position.

2. Then place the drive mode selector to the "2WD" position.

3. Check the propeller shaft for dent, damage or crack.

4. Check the propeller shaft universal joint, oil seal for crack or damage. If abnormality is recognized, replace the propeller shaft with a new one.

PROPELLER SHAFT UNIVERSAL JOINT PLAY CHECK

1. Place the selector lever to the "N" position.

2. Then place the drive mode selector to the "2WD" position.

3. Hold the tube of propeller shaft by one hand, and apply force by the other hand to the flange yoke or sleeve yoke in rotating direction, axial direction, and perpendicular direction for checking looseness. If looseness is recognized, replace the propeller shaft with a new one.

PROPELLER SHAFT UNIVERSAL JOINT FLECTION CHECK

1. Place the selector lever to the "N" position.

2. Then place the drive mode selector to the "2WD" position.

3. Make phase alignment marks on the flange yoke and differential companion flange and disconnect the flange yoke.

4. Hold the tube of propeller shaft by one hand, and apply force by the other hand to the flange yoke in flection direction for checking flection. If showing a sign of catch in the flection direction is recognized, replace the propeller shaft with a new one.
