1990 Suburban v2500, 5.7 Liter 167k miles
Recently when going up steep hills made truck made a concerning
sound - slapping of metal/grinding/knocking in proportion to the
speed of my engine.
With the help of a friend I narrowed it down to it being the
flexplate bolts smashing into the torque converter cover. This means
that under heavy torque loads. The crankshaft is sliding toward the
front of the car causing the flexplate bolt heads that hold the
Torque Converter on the flexplate to crash into the Torque Conv cover.
Can the endplay be resolved by replacing the crank bearings (main
& thrust) with the engine still in the vehicle?
If so, how much
should I expect to pay for this service.
thanks in advance for any feedback
have the same problem?
