A couple of days ago my son hit a deer on the right front of the car.
Didn't seem like anything other than the grill, light and hood were damaged.
However, after a couple of hours of driving a knocking sound started to show
up and it turns out the flywheel/flexplate is cracked.
Any opinions on:
1) Whether the jolt could have caused the plate to flex and crack, or
should I just chalk it up to coincidence?
2) Would a cracked flex plate cause the car to run rough at times? This
has also started to happen in the last couple of hours of driving.
