Lancer ES 2005 - Tie Rod end and CV Half Shaft ???'s Sign In

Hi all,

I just recently muster courage to do car work myself and first thing was to change the tie rod end. The question I have is, do i really need to add more grease to it? I bought the piece and it came with a small sort of valve to screw it into a small hole from where i saw grease, but I started wondering if I should apply even more (which I did not have at the moment).

Now I am thinking of changing the front right CV half shaft (as the boot is torn and is leaking grease), I wanted to know if for this model is a pain to remove it. I was told that it might (or might not) have a bracket of some sort close to the engine that makes it hard to remove.

Thanks!

You really need to get hold of some service information. The service information lists the steps, what tools are needed, and warnings for doing various service procedures.

Thank you for the info!.
I'll give that site a shot. On the greasing part, do parts come already greased and no additional required normally?

No, you usually need to give it a shot or 2 with a grease gun when you're finished.

You simply buy a grease gun.

So, follow up question on this CV Axle thingy.

I managed to change it and some oil/fluid came out of the place where the shaft joined the transmission box or slip differential box.. is the right axle, so when i went and bought transmission fluid, the dealer told me that I really needed LSD fluid rather than transmission fluid.

So,any thoughts how to refill that LSD box?

I don't know what LSD fluid is.

Here's what the trans calls for
Fluid Type MITSUBISHI genuine ATF SP-III

Synthetic fluid will usually substitute for any of them.

Just about tie rod grease fitting: Some may not have had an original but replacement does and do grease it. Might be just a plug or fitting with new part or buy fitting for the angle needed if needed.


If you don't do all you own service and this is now only grease fitting remember to tell any place that it has one and where,

Re: Lancer ES 2005 - Tie Rod end and CV Half Shaft ???'s Sign In

Limited Slip Differential = LSD

So according to what I am understanding, the left CV Axle goes directly into the transmission, so if I replace that one then I'll have to add Transmission Fluid as that is what spills.

If I remove the right CV Axle, then that one goes into the SLD transfer case which does not use transmission fluid, but another type of oil.. the Mitsubishi part is called "LSD Gear Oil SAE 90"

I guess is worth mention it here in case other folks ask about this. I have always seen in CV axle replacements to "replace the transmission fluid lost".. but at least for a Lancer 2005 it is not transmission if is the right side axle.

Is this a manual transmission or automatic?

Automatic.
2.0L

by the way, freaking HARD to read the transmission fluid level.. any tips on how to figure it out? the fluid is runny and it just smears all the levels (cold, hot, etc).

First off, this is transmission fluid, not gear oil so forget the limited slip stuff.

Trans fluid can be hard to read. Dry off the stick read goo first and then insert it fully. When you pull it out, hold it flat so the fluid doesn't run. You may have to rely on looking for the wet reflection of the oil against the dry stick to see the level.

Thanks Hammer.

I'll need to dig more into it.. so i can get a refund/exchange for a quarter of transmission fluid from the dealer. If i find more data/info that provides more conflicting ideas then i'll bring them back.

Also, i have tried to be steady, to ensure i dont touch the sides with the dip stick while pulling it out, etc.. it comes back shiny wet with fluid.. i'll give it another shot and this will provide more data as to whether is tranny fluid as it should have come down from being topped off.
