Jack up the rear-end, put the car in reverse, and let it go for a few days... you'll be back under warranty mileage, so you can get it fixed for free.

Don't take me seriously.

Re: engine noise 04 crown

Seriously, though- the torque convertor bolts are easy to check. Not so easy for the flywheel, but maybe worth a shot. To check the torque converter bolts, remove the inspection plate from the front of the transmission (should only be three or four) and check the torque on them. Rotate the crankshaft to check the next bolt. Should have four.

Nope. If I had, I'd be more confident in what I'm telling you. To check your flywheel bolts, you'll need to drop your transmission... it's a real pain in the . Pretty sure you have a 4L60E, which has too many sensors to be logical... not to mention whether your stock exhaust clears the transmission...

That's a 4R70W. Not a 4L60E, thats a GM term.

Oops- sorry. I had just finished a conversation with a friend who's mid-installation of a 4L60E into his TJ (Wrangler), so it was still fresh on my mind.
