Temporary CV Boot Repair
courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man
I wanted to know if there is a way to fill some kind of reservoir if a CV joint is cracked until I can get a new one?
Not really. The rubber boot is only there to keep the grease in the joint and the dirt out. You can try greasing it and then replacing the boot with one of the new emergency repair kits. The kit contains a boot that is split down the side and then clips, pins, or slides together. Depending on the brand, the way to connect the sides varies. This should keep you going until it can be fixed.
