Help! ok ive been getting this small noise when i start my car... it kind of sounds like when we were young and we wanted our bike to sound like a motocycle so we ran over an aluminum can and it got stuck between the frame of the bike and the wheel.. haha good times... anywhoo... i looked under the car and i could hear it really loud then i looked where the flywheell would be, where the tranny and engine connect... with like 6 screws... theres a metal plate... when i press on the plate i can feel something moving/hitting on the plate.... does anyone know what it could be? Im not mechanically inclined but i have some knowlege... but not enough please help. Shocked

Take off that plate (dust cover ) and make sure the fly wheel bolts are tight.. I have had that happen to me... (Use locktite... if they are..)

Alright i did what Swampy said. i took off the dust cover and Whalah! No broken Fly wheel !.. the bolts on the Fly wheel were loose. So i bought some Locktite and i tightened the bolts. and No more noise!

NOTE: You have to hold the crank shaft, use a 3/4 socket to hold crank shaft while you tighten and then use it to move the fly wheel to get access to another screw. If not you will never tighten the bolts Very Happy

Thank's swampy... im slowly learning how to fix things on my own... having a jeep has made me gain some knowlege on cars... im not saying that they break down or anything its just that theres alot of upgrades/fixes for jeeps. Mr. Green
