My 2008 Mazda 6 wont go foward or in reverse.

If you are lucky, you are just out of transmission fluid. Add fluid to refill the transmission to the mark on the dip stick. Afterward, you need to determine where the old transmission fluid leaked out and fix the leak. If refilling the transmission does not fix the problem, you then need to look at fixing the transmission. Are you sure the shift linkage is ok?

    Have you checked the transmission fluid level? The engine must be running and the car must be parked on a level surface to do this correctly. Have you checked the shift linkage to make sure it has not come loose? You should be able to see the linkage move when you have an assistant move the selector inside the car (with the brake on, of course). Transmissions are not easy to repair, so you are better off leaving this to a transmission mechanic.

What else besides a CV joint can cause a wobble under acceleration up to around 50 mph, then fades away?

Possibly worn motor and trans mounts. Easy test is to open the hood and start the engine. Hold the brake tight and put the van in reverse, rev the engine slightly and look for the engine to rock, now keep holding the brake tight and switch from reverse to drive and again rev the engine slightly and look for the engine to rock the other way. If you get more than say a few inches of movement you should have your mounts changed.

Engine revs but no acceleration

Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. Or one of the CV joints is detached from the gear box. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Well if it was a cv joint and you put it in gear it would be banging around if it was broke. More likely a trans problem. did you check the fluid level?

How do I remove the outer CV joint from the axle?

After removing the axle assembly, clip the metal band on the large side of the rubber grease boot, slide the boot back on the axle shaft. Pull the outer CV housing and axle stub away from the CV joint. You will find that there is a circlip holding the bearing carrier onto the axle shaft, remove it. Remove the boot.

Installation is the reverse of removal.
