I started hearing a rattle in my DD the other night while coming in from work. It sounded like a water pump bearing. I ruled that out and pulled the inspection plate a little while ago. The flywheel seemed to be loose from the torque converter. Upon closer inspection, I realized there is a thin plate on top of the flywheel between the flywheel and engine. It is shattered around all the nuts I've never seen this plate before. Is it common for these things to break? It oly had 3 nuts in it. No place for a fourth. As if it was wrong plate for this trans. I do not know what they did with the other torque converter stud. If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it. I prefer 20 mpg of this car over 12 mpg from my truck. I look forward to hearing from y'all when I get home tonight. -Tommy

Tommy, unfortunately this is not an uncommon occurance with the flexplate on 200 C4's. The design of the flexplate is just so poor. You will have to drop the tranny to fix it...or pull the motor.
