I had my engine replaced and now after 15 minutes of driving(its more frequent when hot). i will get a noise from the area that sounds like a sawzall cutting into a metal hollow can. changes with speed and goes away when i let off the gas. doesnt always occur. comes and goes. sounds like a vibration. no lift kit
Same thing happened to my Jeep. It sounds like one of the torque convertor bolts are hitting the transmission inspection plate. It's annoying, mine doesn't go away, doesn't matter if hot or cold. I bent that plate to a position so the noise isn't as loud, though. And this happened to mine after I replaced the engine, too.
So halfway through winter it doesnt make the horrible noise so its def temp related. I did notice that I can here a circular grinding noise as i hit the brakes(weight shifting forward) in the tranny tunnel.
could of the jabroni forgotten a spacer? or could it be a bad pilot bushing? i have limited experience with autos
got an oil change yesterday. I did take a peek and it looks like the pan is bent inwards. Your saying the motionless filter could make a noise heard for 50 yards?
Care to elaborate?
It doesn't need to move much in order to make a racket. Just a vibration on that tin will cause obscene noise. It's possible that the shop used a trans lift and used the pan instead of the bell housing when removing engine.
