Your the greatest man. Thanks.
Yes, the CV Joint isn't making any weird noices or anything that sounds
like damage. Honestly, I just think what it is that the car is 12 years
old and the rubber just slowly started to rot away and it just cracked
apart. The grease seems fine, and I don't have any problems with
turning the steering wheel while driving fast or slow.
It's just the guy at the shop said it needed to be fixed, and I know
how these small shops are, they just want more money. I honestly don't
feel like fixing anything unless its a must.
I bought this 1993 Honda Civic Lx last year (June 2004) for $1,900 from
a women in Charleston, South Carolina, and she gave me all the paper
work. So far this is all what has been done to the car.
March 1998 (new battery)
April 1999 (New Wheel Bearings)
October 1999 (CK Muffler & Gasket)
October 1999 (Pipe & Spout) Whatever that is
In June 2004 - (Rack & Pinon Replaced, P/S Flush, Dist Rotor, Cap, Plug
Wires, Replaced bearings in both rear wheels, repaired two heat shield,
replaced both rear hub brdgs, replaced A/C Tenisor, Replaced all belts,
replaced both C/V Shafts Align, Replaced Fear/Front Shoes and turn
rotors) Total spent in repairs from 10/2002 to 06/2004 was $4,689.81
After I bought the car at the end of June, it must because she spent so
much money and didn't want to spend anymore. Her paperwork stated it
needed a timing belt changed, and that is when she sold it.
July 2004 the Timing belt was placed, all of the Gaskets on the entire
engine were replaced, new tires, belts, and ever since I only been
using Castrol Synthetic Oil for my car, because I have always heard its
the best, and even though its expensive, its well worth it.
Three months ago I replaced the radiator, and now two weeks ago I
installed a A/C compressor. I am hoping that since it said the C/V
Shafts were replaced, that my C/V's should last a while. Now, what is
the different between SHAFTS? and Joints?
(shafts must be a stick or something, hehe)
