Need to learn how to fix what I think is the drive shaft,it's out of the hole it goes in. It's not going in to gear.

Will assume it's 2wd? Do you mean the slip yoke came out of the back of the tranny? If it did then I would check for damage on the shaft in the tranny before re-installing and try to figure out what caused the issue. Some portion of your rear suspension could be damaged to allow the slip yoke to slide to far back and eventually off.


Anyways. You will have to unbolt it from the yoke on the rear diff. Re-install the slip yoke into the tranny on the splined shaft than re-install onto the rear yoke. Block the wheels and put the tranny in neutral. helps line up the u-joint. Careful, don't let the u-joint caps fall off.
