The automatic transmission flex plate allows for expansion of the torque converter as engine RPM increases. The constant expansion and contraction of a flex plate over time can result in cracks and/or shearing of the flex plate. Broken flex plates can not be repaired, they must be replaced. Made of high quality steel and contain the correct bolt hole spacing and ring gear teeth just like the original part to ensure long life and durability.
