CV joint & temp gauge
About a year ago or so I experienced a problem where thr temp gauge in my '86
Coupe GT would go into the HOT! zone whenever I turned right and accelerated.
This problem disappeared a few weeks later after I replaced a bad right CV
axle. Yesterday the old problem resurfaced while I was driving through a
mountainous area. Yes I was pushing the car pretty hard through the turns.
I've also noticed a metal clanking sound when I roll over broken pavement.
When I jacked up the car to look at the suspension I noticed that you can
rotate the wheels alot and when the wheel does stop there is a metal clank.
CV problem again? Or are these 2 separate problems?
