    ear all,

    Here is my story:

    I have a 95 caravan with 3.0L and 3 Sp. transmision wiht 145km.
    from stops, and I think It comes from transmission/differential box.
    It might be related to the problem but I do not know. I checked the
    hub and bearings and they are ok.

    2 weeks ago, driver side CV started to act up. It stuck at different
    positions, however the boots are good. I changed it. After 50 miles,
    my car started to shake at 30 mph under load very badly. If you pass
    30 mph point, even at 70 it does not shake if you dont put car under
    heavy load. I do not feel any shaking on steering wheel but whole car
    shakes, swings. I raised the car and watch which part shakes. It was
    engine going from left to right, like 1 to 2 inches.

    I took the half shaft out put a new one it. Now it does not shake that
    badly but I just put on 10 miles yet. It might show up later.

    My questions, does the differential box on transmission might be the
    reason for this thing?

    I donot know any parts that will make the engine or transmission swing
    wildly from left to right. Any rotating parts should make the engine
    swing from back to front, or up down.

    Can i change differential on this cars without removing transmission
    from the car.

    Thanks for the inputs.

    I am thinking a bad motor and/or transmittion mount(s). Grinding sound
    might be a belt pulley scraping against something. Others here may
    offer better suggestions.

    I checked the mounts before. they are intacked. One has small craks
    but idonot thick they are deep. T

    The grindign sound is somethign when it starts to move. if it is
    sitting, and I load the engine with breaking, it does not make any

    Thanks tough.
