04 GT Auto Flex Plate Issue

Postby Jake.h71 » Sun Mar 19, 2017 3:31 pm

Hey everyone,

Lately I've had a knocking issue that I have traced back to the flex plate cracking and making contact with the block.
I've removed the engine and replaced the flex plate once before and the issue has once again arisen after around 5,000kms of driving so I have come to the conclusion that the crank may have excessive end float causing fatigue and damage of the flex plate although I am yet to confirm.
Has anyone experienced such an issue?
