Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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
lower )
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.
