1993 Camry manual transmission question.

Recommended Posts

The left side drive shaft in this vehicle has about 3 mm of end float when fitted into the transmission. It also has a considerable amount of vertical play when lifted.

We are wondering if this is the correct drive shaft in this car. Is is possible a drive shaft out of an automatic version of this model would be different? If so, could it have been fitted with the wrong shaft during an earlier overhaul?

There is no reason for me to doubt that this car has been running with the shaft like this since before I bought it two years ago. I've done around 25,000klms in it.

What reason (if any) is there for concern? I don't like it at all.

I am going to assume this is the same issue that were planning on shimming previously. 

The auto and manual are interchangeable providing they are from the correct generation, SDV/SXV10.

End-float is not a big concern; however, the lateral movement is a bit of an issue as it may cause the seal to fail prematurely. I'd only worry about rectifying if you find this is occurring regularly.

Thanks for the reply Trent.

Yes, it is the same phenomena that I thought I had fixed last time. I will remove the shaft again when next I get a chance and compare it to the spare that I have in the shed.

In the meantime, it is leaking - with the new, or near new, seal.
