One benefit of transmissions in a car is that they are said to be small and lightweight, which makes them more traction and saves more gas.
Because of these reasons, a lot of new cars are made with these kinds of things. Even though they have some advantages, they can have problems over time, especially with front-wheel-drive cars.
Often, these problems don’t show up until the car needs to be repaired. How bad is a transmission leak?
Bad CV Axle Vibration
Indeed, a damaged CV joint can cause vibration in your car’s suspension, and this needs to be fixed.
As soon as you start hearing a clicking noise when you turn, it might be time to check your CV joints.
There are a few things that happen when the CV axles in your car wear out. These things can tell you that they need to be fixed. Here are the signs:
#1. You will experience loud clicking noises when turning
When you turn, you’ll hear a clicking noise. This is one of the most common and most obvious signs of a bad or failing CV axle shaft.
Whenever the CV axles are worn down too much, the joints in your car will become loose and stiff when you turn.
Sometimes, when you make sharp and fast turns, the clicks may get louder or more noticeable. This will happen on the side with a faulty CV shaft.
#2. You will notice grease on edge of tire
It’s also possible to see grease on the inside edge of the tire or on the underside of the car if the CV axle shafts are broken.
This is usually caused by a torn boot that leaks grease because it is thrown around as the axle turns.
Keep in mind, too, that a leaky boots will cause the CV joints to fail. Dirt and debris get into the boots and damage the joints.
#3. You will notice excessive vibration while driving
Another sign of a bad CV axle is when the axle vibrates too much when you drive.
When a CV joint or axle shaft is damaged in a way that will make it hard to keep the shaft in balance as it rotates, it will make the shaft vibrate a lot when you drive.
As the speed of the car increases, the vibrations may change, or they may be very noticeable.
An excessive amount of vibration from faulty CV shafts can sometimes make it difficult for the car to handle and ride smoothly. This can also make the car less safe and comfortable.
Most of the time, if the CV axle is damaged enough to make the car shake, it will need to be changed.
The CV axles are the last thing that connect your car’s engine to the wheels. Keep this in mind.
It is very important because it moves the torque from the drivetrain to your vehicle’s wheels so that it can move.
Since this is so, if your car has CV axle shafts that might be broken, you should check them out more closely.

What Causes, Transmission Problems after CV Joint Replacement
The transmission of a car is sometimes called the “brain” of the car. They help you get the power from your engine to the wheels and also keep the speed of your engine in check.
You should keep an eye out for transmissions because they do a very important job and it’s worth it.
Make sure you know that a transmission is fluid-driven, which means that the transmission fluid is very important to keep your car on the road.
Most of the time, a grinding gear, a slow response from the transmission, and other shifting problems will be caused by a problem with the fluid in the car. Those are some of the things that are wrong.
#1. A Leaking Transmission Fluid
If you want to know if your transmission is broken, you can look for signs of a leak of fluid. It’s important to remember that the fluid is usually red in color.
Near the drain plug, or where there’s a tight seal, leaks are most common, but they can happen anywhere.
Keep in mind that transmission fluid is very important for your car or truck to work.
The leak must be fixed before any long-term damage is done.
#2. A Low Transmission Fluid Level And Quality
Indeed, a leaky fluid can cause low fluid levels in a car, so it’s true. So you should always make sure the fluid is in good shape so that it can do its job.
Remember that as the fluid moves through the transmission, it will help to lubricate and cool the parts as it goes through the transmission.
As soon as there isn’t enough oil or the oil starts to break down, the transmission will not work well.
If this goes on for a long time, the transmission will stop working all together.
#3. A Clogged Transmission Fluid Filter
There is a filter for the transmission fluid, but many people don’t know that there is one in the car. This filter helps to keep the fluid clean and of high quality.
It won’t be able to let the right amount of fluid through once the filter is clogged up.
When you don’t have enough transmission fluid, the transmission will grind to a halt or get too hot.
And both of these bad things will end up costing you a lot of money to fix, which is bad for your car.
Causes Of Vibration After CV Axle Replacement
The constant velocity axles, which are also called CV, are a part of the drivetrain that is found on many modern cars and trucks that are on the road.
You car’s transmission sends power to the CV, which sends it to the wheels to move the vehicle forward.
The CV has a greased flexible joint that lets the axle move with the road, but with little effect on power delivery.
CV axle replacement can cause vibration. Here are some of the reasons for that vibration:
wheels or tires that don’t line up
wheels that aren’t in the same shape as the rest of the car, or tires with a lot of radial force difference (the hard spot in tire)
A CV joint that doesn’t work well
A CV joint that is tight or binds
According to the FSM, the only way to fix this is to replace everything.
Can A Bad CV Axle Mess Up Your Transmission
Yes, a bad axle can mess with your transmission and cause it to break down.
It can cause transmission leaks because the seal on the axle near the transmission is broken.
When you move it up and down, this is a sign that the differential in the transmission has worn out.
So, in case you always ask, can a bad CV axle damage the transmission? No, it can’t. Make sure that it can.
Can A Bad CV Joint Cause Vibration When Braking?
Indeed, minor accidents, hitting big potholes, or even going too fast over speed bumps could damage your car’s CV joint, which is what connects the wheels to each other on the back.
There is a good chance that your car won’t show signs of damage right away. You might think there was no damage in your car.
However, even a small impact can bend or even damage the CV joint, which is a big deal.
Keep in mind that a damaged CV joint can make the suspension shake, especially when you’re braking.
There will be a lot of vibration when you’re going fast, and it’s very important for you to fix bad CV joints as soon as possible.
You also need to know that if the CV (constant velocity) joints are worn, they can make the car shake. These are called “CV Joints,” and they are found at the ends of the drive axles. They are wrapped in a rubber boot.
The Axle Boot is used for two things in the car. They keep dirt, grime, and other things out, and they also keep the axle grease in. This is how they work:
When it’s been a while, the CV boots get torn or broken. CV joints will wear down over time because they lose lubricating grease and dirt and debris get in.
A damaged CV joint can make your car’s suspension shake, so it will need to be fixed.
If you drive for too long with bad CV joints, you may also need to change your drive axles, which will cost you a lot more.
If you notice a vibration or hear a clicking noise when you turn, this could be a sign that your CV joint is broken.
There are three things that need to be changed right away: the bent axles, the worn out CV joints, and the damaged driveshaft.
This is the only way to stop the car from vibrating when it turns.
