I have a 1993 Honda Civic that's a 1.5L had to do cv axle repairs. I bought axles for a 1.6 instead by accident. I put them both in and went to drive and my tires didn't get any power what's so ever. Please help!

Both applications take the same half shafts. The inner joints are spring-loaded, and almost certainly one of them didn't pop into the transmission all the way. All it takes is for one to be not fully-inserted and neither half shaft will turn. You will see the housing sitting crooked and the shiny seal surface will be visible.

With the engine off, put the transmission in gear, then try to push the car by hand. If it moves, one of the inner joints isn't fully-seated or it's missing the rollers inside the housing.

I forgot to take it out of gear when I cranked it but I put it in reserve and the lights can on. Didn't move. I would put it in like 3rd gear and my speedometer regesterd like 20mph

How can the speedometer read anything with the ignition switch off?

No like when I to drive off earlier, and it wouldn't move that's what the speedometer said. I checked to see if it was my clutch and I was able to shift smoothly. So you think the part that goes into the transmission isn't in all the way?

With the engine off, put the transmission in gear, then try to push the car by hand. If it will move, there's only two possibilities. One of the inner joints isn't seated or it's missing its internal parts. If it's missing its internal parts, the boot will be all twisted up into a knot.
