Hi there all, i just posted about removing my transmission because i was sure i had a cracked flexplate or at least a loose one, based on posts i have read on these forums.
The only issue it that when i finally got time to check today i was surprised to see a very nice looking flexplate with no abnormal wear and certainly no sort of cracks. I am baffled to say the least, i know what ard knock sounds like and this is deffinatly not a rod knock. it really sounds like it is coming right from my bellhousing area.
My only regret is that i did not put a wrench on the bolts of the flexplate to see if they would turn. I didnt beqcasue when i grabbed the flexplate and pulled and pushed it and banged on it with my hand it didnt budge..
so my question if for anyone who has had confimed loose bolts on their flexplates. Did the plate itself seem loose or did it seem tight untill you put a wrench on it? any help would be greatly appriciated. thanks.
