2002 Isuzu Rodeo, 3.2L, V6, 4x4., Had tranny rebuilt 2 months/$2,000. ago. Now I
have problems with flexplate. Is that something that is included on the rebuilding of
the transmission? What would cause a flexplate to break/crack? There is a ticking
noise that happens moments after I start engine after sitting all night, after engine
warms up the noise eventually goes away. there is no decrease in proformance, just
the loud ticking (like a sticky lifter but not coming from the top of engine, somewhere
The blower motor started acting up at same time time the ticking started (doesnt blow
most of the time then blows for 1 trip) could be coincidence or maybe related, thought
i should mention in case.
A flex plate is not part of the transmission, it is part of the engine and they do break, they are called a flex plate for a reason as they do absorb some of the vibrations from the engine and torque converter and the starter when it is engaged. I am somewhat surprised that the rebuilder didn't mention replacing it while the tranny was out along with the rear main seal. Maybe there were cost restraints, who knows.
