has anyone ever heard of the torque converter braking where the the bolts go in from the flex plate? also I can see that the holes in the flex plate are oblong now and it actually made the flywheel bind up against the starter and not letting it turn? is this a common problem or just some freak thing?

Over the last few years I think there were 2 cases of flex plates breaking. The oblong holes make me think it's been loose a long time.

I figured the bolts were loose for a while, the3 mounting ears on the converter are broke also,I have no idea what caused this failure but anyway I 've got to remove the trans for the repair thank you all for your help. Mike.
