Replacing the flex plate?
Last wheeling trip my Jeep started making a horrible knocking noise. I drove it home (80 miles or so) and of course the knocking is louder, however, the engine runs fine, and has not lost any power. Also no check engine light has come on.
In talking to friends and searching the web, I am convinced it is the flex plate. The noise is coming from where the tranny meets up with the engine. I have heard of an "inspection cover" that I can remove to see the flexplate/fly wheel, but I am not sure where this is. Also I do not know what I need to do to replace this plate, should I try it on my own.
Are there any "How-To's" out there that you know of? Google gave me no results. Have any of you done this, and how hard would it be for someone with limited mechanical skill and tools.
It's a 96, 4.0, AW4.
