just installed rebuilt...

Car: Honda, Civic EX, 1998, 1.6 SOHC Manual 5 speed     -    Back to Fix-It    -    Honda Civic EX Repair Manuals

Q.just installed a new rebuilt engine in a 98 honda civic ex, joined to manual transaxle, drove once around the block and back into garage, heard a loud "clunk" when pushing in clutch ... now, when letting out the clutch pedal, car does not move or engage at all but just emits a faint spinning sound... and I can shift into 1st gear without depressing pedal at all ... if I try to shift into a higher gear or reverse without pedal it grinds. I assume I misaligned the spline shaft or something when reinstalling engine into the car ... I did align the clutch disk and the pressure plate when putting flywheel onto rebuilt engine ... any idea what broke?

Answer Ok sounds like an axle popped out and was not seated all the way. Check to see if an axle popped out.
