After discovering the front subframe had developed a huge rust spot, we replaced the subframe. Everything, including both front struts, ball joints, tie rods, cv axles, and control arms were replaced, but now the car will not move, it feels like it is jammed in place.
The front diff had to removed, when we did that a large amount of trans fluid drained out, I added back in about a quart, and it is not showing on the dipstick. The second problem is now it is extremely difficult to shift the gear lever, you have to use so much force it feels as if you are going to break off the lever, but it does move through every gear. If I remove the metal cover underneath the car the covers the gear shift cable, then it will shift like normal. I know if the fluid level is too low, the car cant shift, but it does feel like when you put it in drive or reverse that it is trying to move, I think. But even in neutral with all my force I cannot get the thing to budge at all. It take special Honda ATF which I have had to order, but while I wait for that to arrive, does any one have an idea what might be happening? I feel like the low fluid level is not causing this issue.
