35k miles. Hear knock near firewall @ idle w/trans in gear. Engine sounds fine in P and N. Don't feel loss of acceleration. Never driven hard. Loose flex plate bolts or torque converter?

    Just started it cold and didn't hear anything. Seems the noise appears @ operating temp. I'll drive it tonight and let you know about reverse. Thanks for your help.

    Ok, the engine shifts in the oposite direction in reverse. And let us know if you 'feel' any vibration while it is doing this.
