Over the past few days I have been getting some squeaks and thumps out of my drivetrain, specifically towards the aft of the torque shaft. I inspected it and found nothing out of the ordinary, I assumed it was my u-joints giving out. I knew they would last a few more hundred miles, so I had planned on replacing them later in the month. I work construction and take my truck right to the sites, I had popped a curb to get to the site, and the squeaks and thumps stopped. I just assumed the bump pushed what ever it was back into alignment. Last night coming home though, the noises came back (on sharper turns and while coasting, while straight and accelerating it was silent). So this morning I pull out to go to work and reverse from the driveway. I reverse into the street, and put it in first gear, suddenly my vehicle won't move. I put it back in reverse and it again won't move. I had thought the clutch burnt out and it wouldn't go into gear, however, the torque shaft still spins in gear, and doesn't spin in neutral. At the same time my aft passenger side tired seemed it was leaking oil, I thought it was my lucky day and two breaks happened back to back, but now since I know that vehicle still goes in gear, and there is still resistance on the clutch, I believe the oil is leaking from somewhere in my axle case, but I don't want to blindly tear into it. On top of all the symptoms, my brakes pedal has extremely high tension, and often does fully recess out to me, and when it does, the pumps I get out of it gives off a bleeding air sound. Any ideas of where I should dig into or what my problem might be?
have the same problem?
