Hi there. Seems we have a lot of missing information that would be helpful; model, year, transmission type, mileage, good description of what is happening. An axle can affect the transmission if the axle is damaged/binding. There are many other things that could cause this as well; low transmission fluid, slipping clutch, slipping transmission, broken engine mounts, etc.. I suggest having a qualified technician perform an inspection to avoid replacing unnecessary parts. Your Mechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with a car does not shift right inspection.
