Lovely Noise From Drivetrain

Hi everyone!

2000 XJ 4.0 Auto 4x4 - RE 3.5 lift on 31s, 242 t case, 8.25 limited slip (factory) rear and D30 front, 230,000 all original miles, hack n tap. New plugs and oil/filter.

Buddy of mine just sent me this vid of his XJ. What would be causing this noise? Im thinking transmission issue.

He just got it home and it started making that noise. We know the front driveshaft is out, steering box is leaking and rear main is leaking as well. He picked it up cheap cheap.

Thanks 🙂

Let me know if you need more info!

Tourge converter bolts might be coming out. Doesn't sound internal to me. Though im not sure what internal might sound like

Thank you!

Since this post the jeep starts but does not move in drive or reverse and that noise is constant.

It is just sitting now until we can get around to it.

Would a broken flex plate cause the jeep to run but not move?

That sounds like the fan blade hitting something possibly even the radiator.

Re: Lovely Noise From Drivetrain

Has he tried pulling the inspection cover for the trans and see if the flexplate moves but the torque converter does not? The flexplate must be spinning for the cps to trigger but could have sheared the torque converter bolts?

Definitely pull inspection cover and see in there, does transmission have fluid in it?

Do you want to get rid of it. I think your 8-10hrs from me. For a small fee ill dispose if it
