Converter bolts question


Get Bent!
May 24, 2001
Hey all, I have a clunking noise just off of idle. I am faily certain that it is the torque converter. It happens when acceletating (any speed) and decelerating. Is it possible to tighten the bolts without removing anything (like the trans or engine)? What is the best way to approach this problem?

Mike :)
No problem.

You'll only need to remove the converter dust cover- four 10mm bolts. It's not a bad idea, if your converter bolts are in fact loose, to remove them altogether and put some blue Loctite on them.
