Either a dealer or a wrecking yard. You could also take it to a transmission shop and they'll be able to get a replacement part for you. You could also go mail order at a place like this: http://www.partsamerica.com/VehicleSelection.aspx?destinationpage=ProductList.aspx&parttype=267&ptset=A&make=Ford&year=1998&searchfor=Flywheel+%2f+Flexplate Although there are plenty of other options.
the doors are being placed in locked position If it's coming from the engine or transmission area, I would suspect a cracked flywheel or flexplate.
hi, blown head gasket, cracked head or block or automatic transmission oil cooler in radiator leaking
May want to check flexplate, could be cracked.
Most likely a cracked flex plate making the torque converter nock or the torque converter is bad.
could be a number of things cracked distributer cap, bad sparkplugs bad plug leads,setting, or bad igntion condensor if automatic transmission,it could be automatic idle adjustment on engine
I've read that bad u-joints can cause a cracked transmission case. I've also read that bad mounts, shafts out of alignment, jumping the vehicle, engaging the transmission at high RPM, can cause transmission cases to crack.
Puddles of transmission fluid under the car where ever you park.
Make sure the transmission is never (NEVER) overfilled! Bought one (HONDA Certified Used Car) with the extended warranty and all the service checks before getting out of the dealership. Seems the tech slightly overfilled the transmission when topping off the fluids and pressure built up in the transmission and cracked the case! Good Note!!--Honda took care of the cost of a new (remanufactured) transmission.
A cracked flex plate (flywheel) could be your problem.
If it is motor oil in the anti freeze, then it is either a cracked head, cracked engine block, or a head gasket blown. If it is transmission fluid in your antifreeze, then the radiator is leaking from the transmission cooler ----- although usually that would cause antifreeze to be in your transmission fluid.
If you are really talking about an automatic transmission flex-plate, then a clicking noise at a lower rpm that seems to go away as yoiu wrap up the motor would indicate a crack. A maual transmission's flywheel that is cracked will generally cause the cluth to slip, and eat the clutch disc rapidly. There will be a strong smell!
You've probably got either a bad head gasket of a cracked head.That's the only place where the oil and coolant come in close contact. It may be transmission fluid if you have an automatic transmission - check your trans fluid level, and check for milky looking appearance to the trans fluid. The transmission cooler is integrated into the radiator and leaks can develop between the two.

A/T have a fluid line that runs through the cooling radiator of your car. My best guess is this tube is cracked inside your radiator. The radiator will needs to be replaced. I am not sure, but I believe that automatic transmissions often use engine coolant for cooling, and I suspect that there is a leak in the transmission. Transmission fluid cooling radiators are separate from the engine radiator, and transmission fluid is pumped through them by a pump. They usually are not stock items, but have to be added on. You probably should take the vehicle to a transmission shop, and have them check it out. Coolant will dilute the transmission fluid, and possibly corrode the transmission parts.
The radiator has a transmission cooling tank in it. Evidently the tank has cracked. You may have a crack in your radiator your transmission cooling line runnz in your radiator good luck
If it is a manual transmission it may make a whining noise or, if it is really falling apart, a grinding sound. If it is an automatic, they usually don't make any particular noise. Most of the functions are pressure valves so the transmission just doesn't shift properly or won't move when in gear. If you are geyying a grinding noise but the transmission seems to be functioning okay you probably need to have the flywheel inspected to see if the starter is dragging or the flywheel has broken or cracked.
not good since most transmission coolers are inside the radiator. if you drive a car with a cracked radiator you can overheat the trans fluid causing the fluid to break down and also you run the risk of damaging the head/head gasket(s).
The flywheel can be cracked or the teeth on the flywheel can be broken or worn. Either of these conditions require the flywheel be replaced. I would also replace the starter when replacing the flywheel. This will prevent damage to the new flywheel from the worn teeth on the old starter.
If the transmission housing is not cracked there is a good chance that the trans is OK. Sometimes the axle absorbs all the shock. If the housing is cracked then you may have trans problems. Mark
you have a cracked flywheel/flexplate
it means that you obviously don't know the difference between a state and a counrty...were you high when you asked this? just wondering...because this cracked me up.
A Nissan Altima with a cracked axle. Meaning the part that connects your tire to the transmission is broken....
the gasket on the transmission pan has more then likely cracked, your gonna need a new automatic transmission pan gasket and you my as well get the filter too it is only 5 bucks. 14 bolts under the car, open one side first to let the tranny fluid drain and when its done dripping remove it, clean it up, put the new filter in it pops right on and off, place the gasket, and put the pan back on
Throwout bearing, bent/cracked clutch fork, and Poor clutch pressure are other potential causes. Transmission failure. Broken gears or transmission parts have become wedged in the path to the reverse gear. Rebuild transmission.
