    Converter bolt backed out or broken flexplate...

    One or the other happened to my truck in the last day or two. Got a tick that is getting noticeably louder from that area. Doesn't seem to happen until the converter has some pressure on it, so I'm hoping a bolt just backed out a little. Will find out tomorrow when I have some time and light. The bad thing is, I'm at school and only have fairly basic tools here. I have enough tools to pull the starter and inspect though.

    Feels just fine. No slipping, no loss of power. Just an annoyingly loud tick.
