    If your differencial is going bad would that cause the car to grind or pull funny on lift off in first on an automatic or would that cause your flywheel to crack in the middle were it bolt up

    What kind of differential ? Open , or a factory limited slip or Gov Loc ?

    You need to pull the cover and look at it before your left stranded because it broke . It may be an easier to fix if its open and you caught it in time .
