So for the past couple months I have been having a terrible rattling noise coming from my engine bay. Anyways, took it to the dealer and had the Master Tech check it out. Right off the bat he told me it was probably the flex plate. Told me to change it asap before my whole tranny goes. Anyways, I took the truck home and removed the inspection panel. I did manually turn the engine but I couldn't see the 8 mounting bolts on the plate. I did notice these though. A small chunk out of the plate and a weld that looks almost like it was worn down. Also started the engine and the noise is definetely coming from the bellhousing area. What do you guys think? I'm don't want to but I'm prepared to drop the tranny.
