Propeller Shaft Joint Check

If universal joints and ball joint are suspected of
producing chattering or rattling noise, inspect them for
wear. For universal joint, check to see if cross spider
rattles in yokes are worn down and replace defective
propeller shaft assembly with new one.
Noise coming from universal joint and ball joint can be
easily distinguished from other noises because rhythm
of chattering or rattling is in step with cruising speed.
Noise is pronounced particularly on standing start or in
coasting condition (when braking effect of engine is
showing in the drive line).
