How Can I Tell If My Axle Is Broken?

Answer

You can tell if your axle is broken in several ways. For one, the car will not be able to accelerate properly. There will also be a screeching sound every time you speed up. Second, the back of the car will drop down, which will cause two or more tires to deflate. Lastly, the car will appear to be on a slant or not parallel to the ground.
