Default Squeaky slash motor

the motor on my slash just started to have a very high pitch squeak to it today. Washed it off last night and when i took it out today it had the squeak. Yesterday i was running it through water and mud but it has never done this before. I have cleaned the motor and re oiled it and it just got worse. It also seemed like it didnt go as fast and it hesitated some times. Any help would be great.

Thanks!

Did you oil both bushings with bushing oil?

run the motor with out a pinion and see if it still does it. That will tell you if it is in the motor or the truck. I asume you had in the water too.

it is in the motor. I have it out so i could clean it.

It looks like the commutator is rusted a little where the brushes dont go.
If that is the problem is there a way to fix it like with wd 40?

My last 2 Stock Slash motors have done this a little WD40 fixed it for me. But its is only a matter of time b4 it will go for good. Like I was told these are "throw away motors" and do not last forever.

thanks for the help!

my last motor lasted two months but i was surprised because i ran it every day through snow and salt. The end bell was TOTALLY corroded. But i oiled it every time and cleaned it every five or six times i ran it. So i think it had a good life!

If it is running like it is missing a bit, look over your slipper gear. Mine did the same thing and I had just a couple teeth ground down and it was causing a whining sound when it slipped.

I would just buy a new one like JOB said I picked mine up off eBay for 12 shipped I think just look and you can find a take out some one is selling for a good price just make sure that its new and not used you dont want to be in the same boat you are now with a worn out motor.

Keep it cleaned and well oiled from the start and it will give you a lot longer service life.
