    After 10 minutes of moderate driving, i shifted into third gear (from neutral)and heard a grinding noise and my revs kept going up with virtually no power to the wheels.. After pulling over i gave it another try, but was just barely was able to accelerate. I had to stop, and couldn't move the car at all after that.

    I've been reading so many threads and have it narrowed down to Axle, differential, or clutch, i think.

    Thanks for any input :)

    Edit: car is a 93 integra stock

    98% axle
    2% clutch

    Check out your axles.

    Not necessarily. I broke the everloving shit out of my axle and it looked perfectly fine. When I took the boot off, I poured out a blended mixture of cage and bearings. Looked like steel salsa.

    In a way i wouldn't mind if it was the transmission.. I've heard stock integra tranny's aren't the best, and have been considering buying a better transmission anyway.

    Gonna to take it apart today, ill let everybody know what it ended up being. Thanks guys!

    Well, axle is a 20 minute job. Trans is more like 4 hours.

    if your car is stock there is no reason to buy aftermarket axles

    Buy auto zone axles. guaranteed for life, so when you break 'em, it doesn't cost you anything. Like $70 for a life time of axles.

    I just bought a pair from Advance Auto Parts for my CRX. 60 bucks a piece, 40 bucks core. Lifetime warranty is nice.
