Knocking noise after replacing automatic transmission in 98 ford escort zx2 4cylinder


Three most likely causes are: #1 You forgot to tighten up all the torque converter to flex plate nuts/bolts. #2 You cracked the flex plate during the transmission change. #3 You forgot to swap one or both of the alignment dowels from the old transmission to the new one during the change. These are hollow dowel pins. They go between the bell housing of the transmission and the engine block. Failure to have both dowels in place will lead to the flex plate cracking [see #2]

Hurth gearbox manual


Perkin engines were built to a standard bell housing configuration so that gear boxes of different makes would fit straight on.

If the clutch slave cylinder on my 2005 Saturn Vue is internal to the transmission, how would the fluid have poured out onto my garage floor? I think the transmission dude might be pulling my leg to the...


No its internal meaning that its in the bell housing.The bell housing is bolted to the gearbox to hous the clutch befor being bolted to the engine.It has no seal on it.So when your slave cylinder leaks,The fluid drips from the bell housing.And the only way to get at it is to remove the gearbox.

Replacemy starter


make sure to disconnect the battery first. The starter is located under the exhaust manifold.... top two bolts come in through the bell housing and thread into the top two holes of the starter (easily accessed top side next to the battery) the bottom bolt is threaded into the bell housing of the transmission easy to get from under the car. Two wires connect to the solonoid on the top of the starter... one is a 13 mm nut the other is a plastic clip once both of them are disconnected the starter is small enough to slide out between the engine and the rack and pinion dropping it down. reverse this to place the new one in... Hope this helps
