Tranny, clutch, or 5th gear?


Asked by Jun 26, 2013 at 03:57 PM about the 1987 Honda Accord LX Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving my 87 accord down the highway in 5th, when the stick kicked out of gear,
and an intense grinding started. She still starts and moves, but every time the axle rotates
i hear a grinding, followed by a clunk (even in neutral). Can anyone tell me what broke?

1 Answer


Upon further research, it may be the differential gear. thoughts?
