2021 Axis 500 Noise when coasting downhill

Recommended Posts

  • Admin changed the title to 2021 Axis 500 Noise when coasting downhill

If the clanking's a metallic sound, I'd be checking the axle's universals I think. If it's something like a uj it would sound quite clear, but if it was in the gearbox then it would be a bit muffled and in a different direction. If it was trying to jump gears, having a hand on the gear change might give some indication.. it would jump.

You should be able to identify where the sounds coming from a bit better if you lean and/or turn towards all four corners or the drive belt/transmission as it's making the noise. Perhaps get someone else to drive while you clamber around and lean over the sides..haha.. It's what mechanics do..

Given the "clanking" description I'd check out metal to metal contacts before taking the belt covers off. I haven't had much experience with belt drives though and Gw may know they can make quite clanking noises..

TonyWright-did you ever confirm specifically what the issue was?  I have a 1 year old Axis 500 that seems like it is having the same issue.  Engine makes a rattling noise when coasting downhill (no throttle).  87 hours on the machine-I changed the oil and filter around 50 hours as recommended with oil for wet clutch.  This is my third issue with the machine...already replaced driveshaft and fuel injector...really frustrated

      So I've got a Hisun 550 that I was doing some work on that required removing the CVT and it's housing. Upon attempting to reinstall the clutch, sheaves, etc, I found that the belt no longer fits - it's far too wide. None of the parts have been replaced, they're all OEM. Exactly the same parts as what I took off a few weeks ago.
      To be more specific, my belt is 1.25in wide, but the gap between the clutch and the primary sheave is only 7/8in wide. I'll include a few photos to explain.
      Has anyone ever experienced such a bizarre problem? Any help at all would be appreciated, I've been stuck on this for a month. I'm open to just about any suggestion.

      I have been exploring all the options available, so many, its hard to choose. I have kind of narrowed it down to the Honda Pilot, Subaru Outback, and Kind of looking at the Outlander, although its a little small,  the new one is nice looking. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations or gripes with any of these rides. I have driven Jeeps for the past 25  years and they have been great, but their price point has gotten to high. Expieriences good or bad would be helpful. Thanks!
