U13 Attesa CV type rattle/oil?
« on: Jun 25, 2013, 12:36PM »
Anyone with a GTiR or Bluebird had a CV type rattle from the RH front side of car before?
The CVs were done and its still there. Could be low oil in the transaxle or whatever is on that right side where drive shaft goes into.

Is it the transaxle or diff on that right side?
Main question, what type oil goes into that area so i can try refill?

Appreciate the help.

I got under it and replaced the transfer case oil which looked pretty clean, with some Penrite 85-90 a mate in shop recommended. Still no change in noise/

Do you think its possible that a transfer case can sound rattly like worn CV joints? Straight line has some noise when accelerating lightly, and lots of rattle when turning left... just like a CV would.
Anyone got an idea?

Its a rotating noise just like CVs do, so no exhaust or other bits can do that, but thanks for trying anyway.

Worn CVs do have a big clicking and rattle noise especially going round corners with load on them. Will have to try a mechanic as i cant figure it out. Just didnt think a worn transfer case would sound like CVs, especially turning left. Maybe its a dud reco CV.
