1995 saab 900 se "flex plate?" problem

My car started making this strange clicking sort of sound coming from under the hood. After looking at it for quite a while my mechanic friend told me he thinks it's the flex plate. I guess it is sometimes called the fly wheel in some manuel trans. cars. However after looking online for a "flex plate" I cannot find anything, does saab call this part something different?? If so does anyone know what it is? thanks!!

Hi never heard a manuall transmission flwheel being called a flex plate i can however see why they may call a auto transmission flywheel being called that as they are a thin metal plate and these crack and do make a clicking noise so you need to ask him exatly what he means yates210456

Clicking noise coming from around flywheel.


If the car is an automatic, it will have a thin metal flex plate, rather than a regular flywheel. If the flexplate gets a crack in it, it would cause a bit of noise. See if there is an inspection plate on bottom front of transaxle. Remove the inspection cover to look at the flex plate. Turn the engine over to view the flexplate all around. Look for cracks, maybe a loose or missing mounting nut where torque converter mounts on flex plate. If you see nothing, leave the inspection cover off, and run the engine and listen closely for a problem from that area.
Leaking oil, eh? Don't know if related, but while looking at the flexplate, check if motor oil is leaking out the rear main crankshaft seal. It will be fitted to the rear engine block, in front of the flex plate. Oil would be dripping off the rear of engine, or maybe collecting at bottom of bell housing, evident when inspection cover is removed.

If the noise is just a spinning sound and not a grinding, than you're starter solinoid is probably bad.
You're best bet is to replace the starter. Hope this helps.

1995 Saab 900 Same problem with stalls dies no warning


It appears to me to be more of a loose or damaged battery or ground connection, either on the battery, the starter, or a power wire somewhere. Next time you have dim lights, get under the hood and wiggle wires around, to see if you can get them to brighten up. When you do hit the right wire, you'll find the problem.

I need an engine diagram for a 1995 saab 900 se V6


A SAAB dealer should be able to print one out for you. BTW that engine is practically identical to the V6 used in a caddy Catera, and Saturn Ion. Those diagrams would be the same, so you might want to search that also.

Flex plate 1995 saab 900 se


You may mean the flex pipe which is a component in the exhaust piping (before or after the catalytic converter, depending on model and year of the car) that serves to alleviate stress along the exhaust system by permitting some vertical and lateral movement of the exhaust section that follows it. This prevents broken welds in the system, among other things.
