I have never had this problem before, I have never seen or even remotely heard of this problem before. Took my car out of the storage unit, fired up fine after sitting 6 months ( Minnesota ) ; let it warm up a while when i was looking at the tires and how much they weathered from the cold added little air to 2 of them and i was off for a sunday stroll. Started to hear a (pinging) noise, rapid ping ping ping ping ping ping about 2 pings a second. Pulled over popped hood and listened ; not coming from moter, not coming from turbo, not coming from trany. OK whatever, "get back to shop". Check torque converter bolts solid, moter mounts solid, brackets pulleys all good, gave everything a good shake all in order... Next day ping ping ping ping with like growl kinda like" ggthr ggthr thrr rthr guthrr rr r "with pings in between, Sorry not trying to be funny here but this car has me up a wall all i can do is laugh i guess... anyways driving down the road, moter winds out reeeeennnnn 6100 R.P.M.'s nothing like i was in neutral reeennn reen reen. shut it down ... went to start, fly wheel spinning moter not. Back at shop pull trany i knew there was no need to pull torque converter bolts sure enough bolts in crank flex plate on converter.. Got New flex plate from Dodge Dealership that day " Brother-in-law is a service writer there" got the high torque plate... 2 Days = 58 miles shredded the shit out of it... Trany off did everything to procedure this time Flex Plate broke in the exact same pattern as the other one.......:bang head Anyone ever went through this before ill try anything i may even put the original A520 back in, dont want to... Im lost... Help... Helllllp HELLLLPPPP...
