Default tranny problem need info

well i'm down here in n.c. now and my dads 97 se has a tranny problem. it has a clunking noise coming from the tranny area. i don't think it'* the tranny internals by the sound of it but i haven't crawled under it yet either. sounds like the flywheel/orque converter has become loose. before i start tearing it down is anything i need to know. any info is greatly appreciated.

thanks guys,
cliff

Default

You didn't describe the Failure Mode (How and When). If it is just when you put it in gear or when you rev it in park, check your Motor/Trans mounts. Have someone watch the engine while you cycle through Park, Reverse, Drive, to see if they can see the motor move excessivly when you hear the bang.
