Ding Ding Ding we have a winner.... So my (engine) mechanic buddy stopped over late last night and after he looked at it, he said bad forward trans pump (not sure if it is the correct term). So I thanked him and called my trans guy this morning, took it to him and he said something was rubbing the flex plate but most likely it was a cracked plate. So he was supposed to get back to me but did not call with quote.
Any ideas what someone would charge to change the plate? I know you have to drop the trans, I just do not want anything else to go wrong with the vehicle and that is why I want to do it now....
The noise does not go away it is muffled by street noise, no A/C widows are open...
