Default New Cv Axle now car won't go into gear Help!!!

Hello I just recently bought a New CV Axle as the original one broke. And it's beyond repair. I went to oreilys and bought an Import Direct CV Axle for my passenger side. It was put in correctly. As I had help from a buddy who went to school for cars. It popped into place just fine. Seems to be in their very good. I jacked car up. And moved the tire and it seems to be in their fine as well. After starting car up.
When I go to put it in any gear the car won't move when put into any gear. Their is a new clutch and fly wheel. And I didn't have any issues driving it b4. We took it apart and put it in and when it fine. Still same thing. It did leak a lot of trans fluid when I replaced it. So I'm kinda of thinking I maybe need to top of the trans fluid? But I'm not sure tbh. If any one could give me some ideas I appreciate it. It's a 2002 honda accord ex. 2.3l 5 speed manual. Also I didn't even need to put clutch down and the gear box moved freely. So either new axle is problem or I just need to top off trans fluid again?

First thing, aftermarket axles are notororiously bad for our car. OEM is really the way to go. Lots of people have issues with the aftermarket units.

Second, I am not sure why transmission fluid leaked when you changed axles? You should not have even touched the transmission. If you meant differential, you never open it to swap axles, so no clue why you were seeing leakage there. The flange simply bolts to the flange on the axle.

You say it DOES go into gear, but does not move. Do you mean it stalls when you let out the clutch, or does it act like it is in neutral?

Nothing about the axles has anything to do with the car going into gear.

Accord.
is it actually engaging a gear? Did you reconnect the shifter cables? Clutch is installed properly? Bled the clutch hydraulics etc?

Ah I missed the Accord part as I guess I did not expect those questions on a forum specific to the S2k :P Sorry for any confusion!

Users first post on an S2000 site and it's a question about his Accord.

Nicely done.

Yup, I realized what forum we were in after I posted. Still don't care.

I'll bet there's an Accord forum out there somewhere.
