| | Maruti Esteem Drive Shaft Issue
Had this issue, I own a Maruti Esteem MPFI 2002 model, I recently replace the LH drive shaft by myself cause it was making noises while turning, As i did not have the gear box oil filling tool i went to a local mech, who told me that the shaft was not fit properly, he removed and fitted it again, which i doubt he did a proper job than me. The same day i went to Pune a distance of about 250km from my place, the car worked perfectly, i was in excess of speeds of 100kph, When i reached Pune and Was on a bridge the car all of a sudden became neutral, though the engine was on the car would not move even if it was in gear, there was a lot of traffic jam because of me, Later when i moved the car to a safe distance, i figured out that the Lh shaft had come out of the gearbox, I some how slid it back in with great diffculty, cause it was night time and i had my family with me. And no Proper Tools.My question is what would have happned if the shaft came out when i was speeding at 100kph, anways to prevent it... I am scared to speed my vehicle again for the fear of the shaft comming out.
