I've got a rattle that seems to be coming out of my trans. The torque converters bolts have been tightened to see if the rattle was that, and it's still rattling. The next guess is that it's the flywheels bolts that are loose. Is it possible to tighten these without remove the transmission? My dad said I should be able to take off the flywheel access panel, and tighten one bolt at a time, by turning the engine slowly.

Thanks for the help!

Not gonna happen without at least moving the trans a couple inches away from the engine. The TC is too close to the bolts to get a wrench in there. Maybeee if you unbolt the 3 converter bolts i believe it will have a little play, i doubt it's enough but worth a try.

What makes you think its the tranny though?

It would be super painful to do with the trans in. I think the converter will slide back..maybe just far enough. Problem then is ..there really isn't much room between the bolts.
