Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 06-06-01-014B (Section 06 – Engine/Propulsion System). Condition Some customers may comment on a ticking or knocking type noise coming from the engine or transmission area. Cause Typically the noise is caused by either the transmission rear dust cover contacting the flexplate (refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 05-06-01-028) or a cracked flexplate (sometimes also referred to as a flywheel). Correction With the vehicle raised and supported on a suitable hoist, verify that the noise is coming from the flexplate area. If the noise is present, follow the procedure below. If the noise is not coming from the flexplate area, refer to Lower Engine Noise, Regardless of Engine Speed in SI. Important: The following information only applies to vehicles with the noise coming from the flexplate area. 1. Remove the front and rear transmission dust covers as described in Corporate Bulletin Number 05-06-01-028. 2. With the covers removed, is the noise still present? ^ If the noise is gone, then perform the steps found in Corporate Bulletin Number 05-06-01- 028 to modify and reinstall the cover. ^ If the noise is still present, then proceed to Step 3 below. 3. Remove the starter motor. Refer to Starter Removal in SI. 4. Remove the three bolts attaching the flexplate to the torque converter. 5. After the three bolts have been removed, slightly move the torque converter away from the flexplate. 6. Reinstall the starter motor and restart the engine. 7. Is the noise still present? ^ If the noise is still present, it is NOT being caused by a cracked flexplate. Refer to SI for information on diagnosing the source of the noise. ^ If the noise is gone, proceed to Step 8 below.
