I'm writing this very winded, as I just had to push my car a few blocks in ~30 degree weather, but here goes:
A few hours ago, I drove to a friends house, and about half way through the trip I noticed that when I gave a bit of gas, suddenly my car got loud, and a low toned rumble could be heard. I thought it was my exhaust, but a few neutral revs sounded completely normal.
Several hours later, I began my trek back home with this noise in mind. I tried to repeat the same noise, and it never failed to return when I "goosed" it a bit, increasing speed.
Well, only minutes from my house into a turn, I pressed the accelerator only to hear *CLANK CRUNCH BANG RATTLE RATTLE* as the car lost the ability to stay in gear (without sounding like it was about to blow up) and I coasted to a neutral stop.
I pushed it back to my house in neutral and all the while I could still hear some clicking and rattling as the tires turned over, but being that it is dark and cold as hell, I cannot really inspect much.
So, here I am.
I suspect an axle, because I had a similar event occurr in my old h22a swapped accord. I put too much power down for the stock ones to hold.
But I am still not sure, because I know of a few issues related to this:
(stock) beaten up clutch
(stock) everything but the motor/gofast goodies. (modified greddy kit)
Now, I can sit in my car (running) and put it into a gear, but when I let off of the clutch, I get the *CLANK CRUNCH RATTLE* **** as the clutch (im guessing) catches a little friction, and it actually moves a few feet/hour, untill the sound becomes too frightening for me to allow it to continue.
So, I am asking the good community of mt.net to point me towards a solution, as I don't know what a broken diff sounds like, nor a miata axle, nor a drive shaft etc.
Thank you so much, and yes, i did use the "search" button
