Why won't my car move?

Dennis Coles Jr.

Asked by Sep 05, 2015 at 04:06 PM about the 1997 Honda Accord Value

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently changed cv axles. Was about to
change the rack but during the test drive,  
car slowed to a stop and now won't move. It
makes a grinding sound like gears slipping.
Car functioned perfectly previously less
occasional cv 'click'. I thought this would be
a simple off & on repair! What went wrong!

1 Answer


Possibly you over tightened the wheel bearing and they were going bad when you did it?
