Knocking Noise-Possible Flexplate
So I have a horrible knocking noise coming from the driver's side of my 99 4.0. Thought it might the pistons or crank but I called my local mechanic who happens to be a big Jeep guy and he says he will almost bet its the flywheel or flexplate (not sure which is the correct name).
He said if the noise gets quieter as you step on the gas then that is a dead give away. Mine does that exact same thing. I am going to try and upload a video of it tonight or tomorrow to get everyone's feedback. Is this something common and what are your thoughts on that being the problem?
