my other car, a 91 civic si hatch is having some problems. :mad it's winter here in wisconsin and there is a lot of snow. my car is one wheel drive and i don't know whats wrong! even when i'm on the snow i can't even spin the right tire, ever! it makes popping noises on the right side by the half shafts and cv's so it's probably a joint in the axle or something???? if anybody has advice on what this is please help me!!!!!! :confused

thanks

i wouldn't think it would move at all with a busted axle....

My thought is that it could just be a busted Half Shaft. Was it popping before when you would turn...I mean before all of this happened?

doh... you are right... wonder if it is seized since an open diff should always take the path of least resistance.
its most likely axle or cv joint, or possibly a worn bore in the differential case.

The noise I would look into but with only one wheel turning thats typical of cars that have open differentials ( trannys)
