Default Can someone Identify this part of my '93 Honda Del Sol?

look here - http://i47.tinypic.com/14v07dt.jpg















I believe it to be the CV Joint and a tear in the CV Boot. The car will go into gear when I turn it on and will move but when I got to shift in into second it pops out of gear and this part starts to spin and the car will not go into gear until I stop and turn it off for awhile. I have it parked and haven't been moving it.















it is not the drive shaft it is further back on the left side of the picture here - http://i50.tinypic.com/2jflh1h.jpg

Looks like your CV Boot exploded. That will cost a pretty penny unless everything else is fine.

That is a torn CV boot on your drive axle. A very common failure. The normal repair is replacement of the drive axle (also called a half-shaft). The part is about $100 exchange from aftermarket sources or $200 from Honda. Honda boots last about 10 years, aftermarket boots last about 5 years. Shop labor is about $100. It is a medium DIY job that gets much tougher if you don't have access to an impact wrench.

first of all its not a half shaft or so its call a half shaft( 35 yrs exp and he knows nothing)















half shaft is where the axle connects to it then it connects to the transmission but is only common on the driver side.















second delsols dont have halfshaft except the del sol with the b16a3 engine















for your question thats a torn cv boot on the passenger side axle















the reason your car doesnt move is because the transmission is not a limited slip differential transmission(LSD) so it runs on one side which is the passenger side axle so when you try to shift gear and accelerate it wont go because its all torn inside.















go to autozone and get a brand new axle with lifetime warranty for 59.99 plus tax.















you can replace this yourself















heres a website to help you or just google "replace axle on civic" (civic,delsol,integra are the same procedure)

good luck
