So I'm pretty sure I found the problem. I pulled my driver side axle and realized it looks that my halfshaft broke inside the diff. [img]webkit-fake-url://6ae5bce0-a946-4f5c-888d-5b06806ce1ba/imagejpeg[/img]

I have a 1988 Honda Accord DX 3 Door - 2 years ago I had my clutch and flywheel replaced. 2 months ago I had my clutch cable adjusted as it lost tension. Last week I was driving and lost forward motion although the clutch had tension and would engage. The engine ran as usual and the transmission was making zero sounds. Today I am checking the following:
1 - Throttle Linkage
2 - Clutch Cable
3 - Clutch Pedal Return Spring
4 - Clutch Cable Adjuster
5 - Clutch Release Bearing & Fork "Area" as this is new to me
6 - All fluids

I think this is the best plan of action and will have updates on all action items soon. But any suggestion while I am working on the vehicle are appreciated.

I am having this same problem except i didnt hear anything break and nothing is leaking. I just rebuilt the whole engine and new clutch flywheel throw out bearing ect. Cv axles are in all the way. I can hear the car go into gear. But it wont move and it wont die when clutch is let out.
