I've been working on a 1997 sedan with a 5 speed. Put a couple of months into rebuilding it. A couple of weeks ago one of the castle nuts on the lower passenger side ball joint disappeared. Put a new castle nut on it to drove it home to repair it. In addition I put new CV shafts on it. Now I can put it in gear let off the clutch and it does not go anywhere. When I give it gas, the speedometer rises. Please help!

Sounds like the axle shaft isn't all the way. If you put the car into gear are you still able to push the car / roll it? If so, axle(s) aren't in all the way.

Also make sure the replacement axle spindle is the same diameter of the ones you've replaced.

Thank you! I used a dead blow hammer, lined it up, and it popped into place, no sweat.
