noisy transmission

Recommended Posts

I have a 2013 response txi and there is a knocking sound coming from the trans. I took it to the dealer and he said it was a bad tranny so they replaced it with a brand new one. There were other issues with the trans. and it cured them but the knock is still there. It is very noticeable when idling in neutral. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem or is it normal. If you put your head down next to the bottom of the engine it is quite loud. Would appreciate any ideas you may have.

Possibly the damper plate would be my guess.

Sure it's not coming from the engine? Does it change with or go away at certain engine rpm?

Sounds like it could be but mechanic said no. does go away as you accelerate but may be because everything gets louder

Although I haven't heard of it in a Response, I'm guessing damper plate. And when they go, they go big.

i've replaced the damper plate in my response twice

the second round i suspect was unnecessary and was only transmission gear lash as it still knocks after that second replacement

the first replacement was well warranted and a skidim damper plate was installed.

that skidim damper was replaced w an oem indmar part which appears much more substantial than the skidim unit

icbw but it's my story and i'm sticking with it

I had a knock at idle that went away once you raised the RPM. It ended up being a loose flywheel that was rattling around inside the bell housing. Unfortunately it ended up tearing apart the rubber on the damper plate so that had to be replaced as well.
