We had a 2005 Acura TL towed in on Friday last week customer said to wouldn’t go anywhere. Brought it in and checked fluid lvls smelled a bit burnt proceeded to check filter for metal shavings.
Fliter was in need of service but no signs of internal failures. Furuther inspection of the drive line came up with a broken half shaft/ CV joint. It was being held together by the rubber dampener on the shaft. The rubber dampener is a poor design choice for this Area of the country as salt gets trapped in it. Causing premature wear and failure
