    alright just out of the blue today after my truck , which has a chevy th400 behind my 500 was run for a little while then parked then re-started it started making a knocking noise like there's a bolt tumbling inside the torque converter. anyone have any experience as to what usually happens when a torque converter goes?

    Check the bolts holding it to the flexplate or flywheel or whatever you call the thing that the starter turns.

    'tis a cracked flexplate. after taking it for a drive the noise it got worse and upon some disassembly the cracks are clearly visible now. hopefully after some sleep, I'll be changing that.
