Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage
I bought a 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage with a broken flexplate., which made a loud clanging noise when it ran. The lady I bought it off of said it had a motor put in it, and it has broke 2 flexplates since then, and she wasn't putting any more money into the car. I pulled the transmission and it was broke in all 3 corners where it bolts to the torque converter/flywheel. I think that maybe they have been putting it on backwards, or not getting it properly aligned between the crank and the torque converter. My question is...Which direction does it go on? And does it need to go on as to put the crank and the torque converter in relationship with each other? It has the 1.5 liter engine with automatic trans. I don't want to put it back together until I'm sure how it goes on. and I can't find this information anywhere. One side of the flexplate is hooved out in the center where it bolts up to the end of the crankshaft. I don't know if that side should be toward the crank or the torque converter
The dish in the center of the flexplate should protrude tword the engine, also check for excessive torque convertor run out, as that can crack the flexplate
