SOURCE: how to remove a flywheel of a 1983 jeep

You have to remove the transmission to access the flywheel bolts. It is bolted to rear of crankshaft. If you need to unbolt the converter on an automatic, you still need to remove trans. There is nothing inside the bellhousing that you can service without removing transmission.

SOURCE: how to replace a flex plate in a 1992 jeep cherokee

To change flex plate you need to remove trans and transfer case...too complicated to write here.... You will need a decent manual to guide you through a job like that along with a really good jack, a decent set of tools and flat place to work where jack won't sink into ground. Personally I'd rather attach a pair of vise grips to my nose than do that job on the ground!!!
good luck will help with any questions you have along the way!

SOURCE: How to remove/install a 4 cylinder jeep Yj

If you need to ask, you have never done one. I suggest that you get a chiltons or haynes manual to guide you through it. tips are: use large bolts without heads to guide the transmission back onto bellhousing so you don't need to hang the unit on the clutch disc and risk bending it. Change the pilot bearing in the back of the crankshaft if it's the least bit worn, be very careful not to damage the crank sensor on the bellhousing, and use a good pilot shaft when aligning the disc inside the clutch cover. spread some white lube on the input shaft and front guide collar on the transmission and make sure the throwout bearing has sufficient grease in the inside groove.
good luck!!!

I just replaced my engine for a 06 chrysler 300. Started up fine. But when I put it in gear i get this knocking noise from the bell housing area.


You either left the torque converter bolts loose or the flex plate (flywheel) is Cracked, Usually around crankshaft flange. You can check the bolts without removing the engine, but the flex plate will require engine removal. Look in inspection opening while engine is running and check for run out (rotational wobble) of flex plate. This condition will cause extensive damage to torque converter and front pump seal in the transmission.

I want to change a 3.7 motor off of 2004 jeep Liberty 2wd in order to fit my 2002 jeep liberty 4wd?


engine swaps are complex as is mixing engines to wrong transmissions.
so both are 3.7L, is that it?
you never said what exacty didnt fit.
the flex plate to TC
or TC to A/T pump side mismatch.
????????
if its the flex then get the correct flex plate.
or call jeep parts? ask them for the right parts
the side of the trans has the trans part number
my guess is all you need is the correct flex plate for engine to TC.

1990 7.3 idi auto non turbo fly wheel removal a replacement


An automatic doesn't have a flywheel, it has a flex plate instead. The torque converter makes it act a lot like a flywheel, though.

But... you're probably talking about the flex plate or the ring gear around its edge. This is going to require removing the engine from the vehicle - there's no other possible way to get the flex plate out.

Once the engine is sitting on the shop floor, it's a simple job to replace the flex plate - first you unbolt the torque converter and set it aside, then you unbolt the flex plate from the crankshaft. Bolt the new flex plate onto the crankshaft, bolt the torque converter to the new flex plate, and put the engine back into the vehicle.

NOISY FLEX PLATE, KEEPS CRACKING AROUND MOUNT ING SCREWS (3) , WELDED UP CRACKS AND REPLACE SCREWS, IN A WEEK STARTS GETTING NOISY AGAIN WE HAVE WELDED THESES CRACKS 3 TIME NOW, HAVE REPLACED NEW FLEX...


sounds like it is incorrect flex plate
for bolts to keep coming loose i wouldsay the bolt threads in end of crank have been streched thru over tightening
you may be able to redrill and tap these
to do this you will have to pull engine
you alsocannot weld craCKS IN A FLEX PLATE
FLEX PLATES flex THEREFORE WELDING IS A WASTE OF TIME
WELDING WILL ALSO PUT FLEX PLATE OUT OF BALANCE WHICH AGIAN WILL CAUSE CRACKS AND PROBABLY WAS THE ORIGINAL PROBLEM TO START WITH

Its an 02 how do i check the torque convertor or flex plate bolts to see if that is were my noise is coming from


The inspection cover is usually plastic, it is bolted to the under-side of the bell-housing and it is held in place usually by 4 small bolts, and once you remove them the inspection cover should come out. (you might also have to remove the starter on some applications)

After you have removed the inspection cover most of the flex-plate and the torque converter will be exposed. Turn the engine over and use a good light to inspect for damage to the flex-plate, and also check to see if the torque converter to flex-plate bolts are tight when they revolve into a position where you can attach a good ratchet.

1989 jeep cherokee makes loud knocking noise in straight line six 4.0 engine. Engine does not smoke and does not appear to have a miss.


Four things can give you a knocking noise. 1. failed rod bearing 2.failed main bearing 3. Bad piston wristpin 4. broken flex plate (auto trans)
If It's a bearing, likely you are seeing lower than normal oil pressure. Any bearing repair requires the pan to be dropped but to do the job correctly requires engine removal, crank re-grinding or replacement and oiling system cleanout (expensive). Wristpin (piston/rod assembly) can be serviced without engine removal but pan and cylinder head need to be removed. Flex plate is pretty much a trans remove and replace, with new wheel.
Only a good experienced tech can differentiate between the noises so I suggest you seek aid in your diagnosis, though, if either bearing or piston is the problem I'd likely find another engine before considering the repair.

Crankshaft removal of a 1995 jeep cherokee 2.5td


To remove crankshaft, engine must be removed from vehicle. It is bolted to the flywheel/flex plate of your transmission. Even if you found a way to remove it, it would be really difficult to replace it correctly. If you are going to replace it due to a bearing failure, keep in mind that debris from that failure likely has migrated into oil galleys and is waiting there to damage new bearings. At the very least all passages should be blown out with high pressure air, preferable is to strip engine down and also check cam bearings which may also be worn from pressure loss during failure and debris.
good luck!!
