    Is it just the cv joints knocking /clicking giving you the problems or is the gearbox itself having issues also….

    i only ask as if its just the cv joints then change those only



  • the cv joints are making horrible noise and i cant even turn a curve with them, its kind of slipping and i think they are broken or something. also the tranny is an automatic and it only shifts once after taking off in drive. which means its only in seccond.



  • Ahh.. agreed there then sounds like its shot, replacement box then and a new set of cv's

    guy i would really like some help, do you use msn or yahoo to chat, id like to speak with you, really would appreciate it.



  • click on my msn link at the bottom of this post and add me..



  • ok all, ive been having a chat with this fella via msn, trying to help..

    First off his cv joints have gone I've established that, usual sounds when turning right or left..etc..
    thing is he can only shift up to 2 on the auto box and then no drive..
    sounds like the box may have gone is there anyway the trans bands in the box can be adjusted or is it shot..
    He lives in Belize long way away and no parts are available…a recon/replacement box from ebay is ok but the shipping cost are huge..
    hes asking if another auto-box could be transplanted on from a suitable donor car or model..
    Any solutions would be gratefully received by him, hes trying to salvage the car and keep it running..as they only have fords around him..



  • problem is the bp engine will tear up the new auto box too if its a straight swap, my advice would be to swap to a manual box form the car the bp came from (323f or something like that). the bp will ruin the original drive shafts and box, have a look on mx-3.com

    You need an F serise manual box, or an auto box form a bp engine'd car.

    I know its not what you wanted to hear, but it should save you in the long term as you wont have to keep replacing the boxes and drive shafts



  • thanks James that the advice i gave over msn but needed it confirmed mate i hope he can source and replace..
