If the cv joint vibrated the hell out of the transmission before it was replaced, your mech is right. the inside of the tranny may need to be rebuilt. If there was little or no vibration I suggest its just co-incidence. did they fillit back up with trans oil when they changed the joint? that will cause all sorts of computer errors due to insufficient oil pressure to activate solenoids. I;d make sure its correctly full.

What is a cv shaft

Dear Dianne,
Under the front hood of your Honda is a motor or it is also called an engine.
The engine is hooked or fastened to a large container called a transmission, which is also under the front hood.
In order to get the car to move, there are 2 steel drive shafts going from the transmission to the front wheels.
These drive shafts are about one to 2 feet long, and each one drives a front wheel. That is why there are 2.
These steel drive shafts have a large joint at each end of them, so you see why there are 4 joints.
The joints attach to the wheel on one end and the transmission on the other end.
These 2 steel drive shafts are called cv shafts because they have a CV joint at each end, and these CV joints are a part of the shaft assembly.
The CV shafts "transfer" the movement of the engine to the wheels.

Check engine light cam on and transmission does not work after hitting a pothole

Hitting can damage many systems under the car. Check the following:
- One of the Constant Velocity (CV) Joints may have slipped out of the transmission due to which the car could not move even in any gear.
- Check the transmission for any leakage. If so, repair the leakage, top up the transmission oil to the specified level and check to see if it works.
- Check the transmission control cable.
- If the problem persists consult an authorized service personnel.

No error code trans not engaging with no warning

There could be many reasons relating to this problem. But inspect the cv joints at the transmission side. Inner joint of one of the cv joints may have slipped out of its position.

Repair cv joint seal

Are you asking about the boot on the CV joint, or the transmission seal where the CV joint axle fits into the transmission?

If you replaced the axles, It cant be the C.V.(constant velocity) joints. unless you only changed the bearings, the CV joints would be my starting point. (try to turn the axle by hand while the transmission is in park. if they have excessive play that may be you culprit) changing the half shaft is much less time consuming than trying to rebuild the C.V.'s especially if you've never done it). I would try to narrow it down, after a test drive you should be able to tell if the shake is related to the steering, suspension, or drive train. Check tie rods, and the ball joints (with the car lifted try to move the wheels rapidly in and out by hand from side to side(tie rods) and top to bottom (ball joints) if there is excessive play you found a problem) I would also check the A arm bushings. if those are severely worn they can cause bad handling, or a violent shake. If these all check out I would look into the transmission having the problem that's all i can think of, I hope this helps

Break and abs light on

If your abs and brake light are on, first check to make certain that there is enough fluid in the brake reservoir. Next, you will have to check the abs sensors on each wheel for damage. Generally, the sensors are easily found because they are attached to a wire near your cv joints. If your sensor are ok, then the next probable cause could be a ring(s) on your cv joint(s) has damaged and require replacing the entire cv joint. Also, if your check engine light is on, have the light read for possible codes.

Good Luck

91 lincoln cont cv axle was making noise and now car wont go forward or backward

hate to be the bearer of bad news but it sounds as if you may have waited to long to have your cv joint replaced and now it has possibly caused some internal damge that may even have affected your transmission, but all hope isnt lost, try and have the vehicle twoed to a shop you trust and have them take the joint out and check for what type of damages anwhat the repair cost would be

Loud clonking and jurking when turning sharp

It sounds like your CV joint is about to give out. Have it replace soon as possible before it brakes and your going to need it towed to a repair shop. Better to drive it to a repair shop before you have it towed there, best place to have the CV joint replaced is the transmission shop, better rates there and is alway's working on the CV joints to replace FWD transmissions. Good luck and keep me posted friend

Speedometer not working and check engine light

I think you should check the vehicle speed sensor. It is on the transmission near the cv joints. Also check the ground. I am thinking that the check engine light is indicating the VSS. Go to Autozone and ask them to read the engine code. Please post the results.

1998 Honda Civic speedometer nervous on the red light

?? Does it move on the road ? You could have a worn out CV joint that allows the transmission to free-wheel. If that is the case, replace immediatly, or the transmission differential will fail.
