Bolts that secures torque converter to flex plate are missing or broken! Before this happened did you hear any clanging noises or other strange noise? I think what you were turning was the torque converter. Will the starter turn the engine over now?
engine wont crank now, cant get enough rpms. there was a slight rattle, i thought something was vibrating, havent noticed any missing bolts, am going to drop tranny tommorrow.
