What can cause an axle to break on the passenger side on a 2009 Honda accord?

They can break, but they give plenty of warning signs before they do. Clicking or knocking when making a slow turn, Vibrations going down the road. The rubber boots on each end will sling grease, before they break. If by chance the shaft broke, it was a defective part.

I have an 2005 envoy and when I put it in 4 wheel drive I hear like a rattling sound up front but the wheels not moving I'm stuck in the mood/snow right now any idea what's wrong ?

You could have a front driveshaft u joint problem, or your front differential could have bad clearances between the ring and pinion. Unfortunately you will have to crawl under the vehicle to have a look at the shaft that connects up to the ffront wheels. Look for a loose shaft the should connect to your front differential. If the shaft is fine put the vehicle in neutral and move the shaft in a rotational back and forth pattern to check u joint or front cv axle style joints. Im forgetting the joint name. But you also have cv axles also that connect the diff to the front tires.

I have a 1996 astro van. Front drive shaft moves to the transfer case. Nothing from transfer case back. Is there a clutch in the transfer case? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The front drive shaft moves when the truck moves.. This is a "All wheel system" NOT a 4 Wheel Drive system.. Yes there is a clutch pack in the transfer case that is supposed to send the power to the wheels as needed. for traction. Make sure you keep all the U joints lubed and in good shape.. these are very expensive drive shafts. You really did not tell us the problem.. possibly the truck does not go ?. in which case it could be a bad transfer case or possibly a broke output shaft on the trans. except for the output shaft and rear housing these transmissions are the same as the 2 wheel drive a comment and let us know what you find, By the way check to see if there is any fluid in the transfer case..

AWD not working

No 4X4 switch on the instrument panel ?
Automatic Transfer Case
The single speed automatic transfer case system shifts automatically from rear wheel drive to four wheel drive when the transfer case shift control module (TCSCM) senses the difference in rotation speed of the front propeller shaft and the rear propeller shaft . Two vehicle speed sensors, one located at the rear output shaft area of the transfer case, and the other, located at the front output shaft area of the transfer case, send front and rear propeller shaft rotation speed information to the TCSCM.
When the front and rear output shaft rotations remain the same, the TCSCM sends pulse width modulation signals to the encoder/motor to keep the transfer case in rear wheel drive. When the front and rear output shafts rotations are different, the shift control module sends pulse width modulation signals to the encoder/motor to engage the transfer case into four wheel drive.
The system will automatically transfer a percentage of torque to either the front or rear axles as required to stop all wheel slip. When the front and rear output shafts rotations return to the same speed rotation, the shift control module sends pulse width modulation signals to the encoder/motor to position the transfer case back into rear wheel drive.
When the transfer case is engaged into four wheel drive, a lamp indicator on the instrument cluster will light. The automatic transfer case system is completely automated, no transfer case control button switching system is required.

Just replaced rear joint on my 1997 Chevy 1500 4x4 (5.7L). Went down the road and the caps on the joint that are tightened by the four bolts popped out. I did put in the clamp rings but they still popped...

There should be clips in the grooves on the caps that are held in by the drive shaft straps.All ujoint caps either have a clip in a groove or a snap ring clip on top that fits into a groove on the drive shaft yoke.These clips not only help keep the ujoint front spitting the caps out they also center the ujoint in the yoke on the rear axle.If you dont have a clip groove then you may have the wrong ujoint.Look closely at the old ujoint and you should see what I mean.Good Luck!

Vibration in accelorator pedal

First check the lug nuts on all 4 wheels. You need to be sure they are all tight. If some are loose you may also see some wear around the lug nuts.
Second check the front and rear universal joints og your drive shaft for wear. I think this is most likely the problem. Sadly vehicles do not always send out signals they are about to break but I think yours is and I think it most likely is the front or rear universal joint. Try using both hand from under the truck to twist the drive shaft back and forth. You should not be able to budge the drive shaft at the universal joints so be sure to look as you turn or have some turn while you look or look or have them look while you turn. You may see wear if it is bad enough [ as it sounds like it is ] so be careful and look close on both ends of the drive shaft for wear.

Best of it.

What do i need to do to convert my c-6 4x4 tranny into a 4x2 tranny

get a 4x2 tranny, and replace the 4x4 tranny and 4x4 transfer case with it, you will also need to remove your front drive shaft, that operates your front FWD, and replace the drive shaft for the rear axel.....

Find a good Salvage yard and see about trading parts to convert to 4x2
