    Duh. Can't get a replacement. No longer manufactured. Unable to find a replacement. Is there a flex plate from any other vehicle that will work?

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]

Have the transmission mount checked. Also have them show you the damaged flex plate. ticking noise may be the dust cover rubbing the flex plate.
