Default 02 Grand Cherokee Laredo Sport Flex-Plate bolts

Guys on my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Sport 4.0L the flex-plate bolts are loose. Is there 4 around the outer of the plate and 6 near the center?

The guys online that are talking about these coming loose are they tightening the outer 4 or the center six?

Last question does anyone know the size of these?

I really appreciate the help.

Usually it's the 4 outer ones that hold on the torque converter. The center 6 don't usually loosen up unless the plate cracks around the crankshaft. A lot of the time when the center cracks, it's because the bellhousing bolts are loose.

I saw a Pontiac Trans-Am with only 1 bolt left driving the torque converter! The others had fallen out! AND GM only has 3.
