Default Flexplate Replacement

For the longest time I have been hearing that knocking noise that is associated with a cracked flexplate. Tommorow Im gonna crawl underneath there and see if I can figure out if my suspicions are correct. If they are this is not a repair that I have any clue how to do (you have to drop the tranny). What is a fair cost or does anyone want to do it? I will pay.

you might get lucky and find out the bolts are just loose, very common, mine just did it. dont forget the red locktite if it turns out that they were they the culprit

I thought that i had this issue but it turned out to just be motor mounts. Make sure that your mounts are good before you go paying someone to pull your tranny for no reason...
