1998 Acura RL Problem

RL Front Differential
Transmission problem
1999 Acura RL 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 263000 miles

My car recently stop while I was driving on the expressway. It made a loud noise and it was not able to accelerate. I was able to start the engine but when I put it in gear it makes a terrible noise. The transmission company says its the front differential and not the tramsmission they just put in last March.
What are your thoughts. How much do you think it should cost to replace the differential? What is the likeness of it being the differential compared to the transmission? I appreciate your information. Thanks

how do you fix it how much it cost to fix

Do you
have the same problem?

Without examining it my self, I would assume he could be correct. Since it is not part of the trans, it may have failed

get a second opinion to verify. Pricing depends on the failure which you wont know till it is removed and examined.
