    What a brand new flexplate makes the blazer feel like instead of an old busted POS like I had in my blazer. The center about fell out of it when I removed it. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    A guy that used to work for me bought a 90-something Z28 Camaro for $800, because it had a "bad transmission". The rest of the car was pretty nice. He towed it home then started to pull out the tranny. Then he noticed that the torque converter would spin, without the flexplate moving. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif So he installed 3 new torque converter bolts and had a nice ride for cheap! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
