A two piece shaft is used to prevent the shaft from bending at high RPM. This is know as the whipping effect. As the shaft will not bend, therefore the transmission tunnel or floor above the shaft can be lower allowing more room for passengers or goods.

My 92 Ford Explorer knocks a bit when I switch gears. Check your u-joints. Park the Explorer with the emergency brake on, leaving it in neutral (flat ground, please). Crawl under your vehicle and grab the drive shaft and turn it to see if there is any movement difference or makes any noise. Also, push it in different directions (up/dow) to see if there ...

There is no way that I know of which messing around with the fuses would cause your issue. I will assume at this point you replaced the fuse you moved to the tail lights, so this is not your problem. Sounds to me that there is a larger transmission problem happening here.

If not, then the automatic's clutches will last longer. This is true because there is at least one clutch for each gear in an automatic, and you can't replace them without ...

(eg: Press the clutch all the way down before cranking, etc) If this is the case with your car, then it is identical to cranking it in neutral. If you don't have such safety features in your car, the car will try to launch forward and the engine will stall. Same ...

You can test the transmission by putting it through the gears while turning the input shaft and examining the output shaft for proper rotation. What I mean by this is, put the transmission in first gear and check the output shaft rotation speed as you turn the input shaft. Next, put it in second gear and again check the output transmission speed. Does the ...
