Default 1992 Accord - Shaft, axle, clutch slip? CV joints?

Intermittent slipping noise started a few months ago. Sounds like something's getting stripped, or not lubed properly.

CV boots need to be replaced - when I turn right it makes a knocking noise and I think it started to do it when I turn left.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Tim

If it's clicking when turning it's too late to just change the boot. You need to change the CV joint.

hey, thanks for the response. that's one problem and solution.

i just realized i wasn't too clear on the main problem:

when i'm shifting gears sometimes or giving it gas, it sounds like something is slipping. a squeeky noise - like a dolphin or something... it happens mostly when i take off fast (i have a stick, and it doesn't happen all the time) i don't know much about cars, but it sounds like some kind of power is getting lost - like the driveshaft is stripped (if that's possible).

i was reading somewhere that damaged cv joints can cause problems to the axle - so i then that made me think that maybe there is damage to the axle causing it to slip.

as much as i don't know it sounds/feels like too much power not being applied correctly - like when you try to unloosed a tight screw without pressing down hard - it sounds like something is stripped. ?

Hope this helps, and thanks.

The CV joint is part of the axle. Fix the clicking CV joint and I think the other noise will go away.

Cool. Thanks for the response. Yeah, I need to get that done ASAP.

One other thing that I just remembered:
A few years ago I had a 96 Grand Cherokee and the automatic transmission went out >> the noise that my manual transmission is making now sounds similar (i'm pretty sure).

i'll take your advice on fixing the cv joints - thanks!
