|PDR60||I've had good luck with TCI flex plates. They have one for towing that's far superior to stock.|

|Jjorgis5569||Interesting, thanks for sharing. Iíve only had one personal experience with a cracked flex plate, and it sounded like a rod knock.|

|greenskeeper||I pulled the truck into the garage, as soon as I gave it any pedal the noise went away. Almost certain it's going to be the flex plate.|

Maybe itís just the video quality, but the flexplate looks like itís wobbling to me. Try and look straight up near where the bolts are and see if itís broken. Thatís where they usually fail

TC, flex plate, or transmission?
This is on my 97, put it in here for more traffic....move it if you want mods.
Started out with a grinding noise only in P R D 2 or 1. No noise in neutral.
Now I've got a horribly loud grinding noise in all gears, so loud that I am thinking it is eternal to the transmission or torque converter. So I am thinking flex plate?
The truck drives and shifts fine, although I'm not driving it anymore until I figure out what that noise is.
If I pull the inspection cover will I be able to see most of the flex plate while rotating the engine by hand?
