What Happens When Bolts Arent Tight

Recommended Posts

After replacing a cracked flex-plate, I forgot to torque the bolts that hold the driveshaft to the flex-plate sm00. Well, the new one hasn't come in yet. Oh well, things are bound to happen.:D

What was the symptom that tipped you that you as happening? Nasty noise? Vibrations?

id="quote">There was a cracking sound then it started vibrating really bad because the driveshaft was out of alignment and was wobbling. I'm really lucky that nothing else went wrong. Praise The Lord!!!
