2007 Crown Victoria P71 Rattle no start

Asked by Sep 01, 2017 at 08:13 PM about the 2007 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Since i have the worst luck my car has another
issue. Major issue 5, all previously issues
comolete. This one started as a general rattle. All
indications pionted to a bad catalytic converter,
which to be honest may or may not be related to
the current issue, if my diagnostics was incorrect.
This is a no code issue. Rattle was happening at
idle in gear only. The new issue that left me one the
side of the road was at a stop light i accelerated
and at about 10 mph lost accelleration and from
what it seemed the transmission sounded like a
hammer in a 55 gal barrel rattling around. Foot off
the gas the engine runs smooth. Foot on the
accelerator same rattle. Pulled over and as i shut
off the engine same rattle. Engine turns one inch
as you try to restart the car. If you manually turn
the engine the flywheel turns or flex whatever the
technical term for this year model. Any
suggestions. Dont think its the actual trans or the
crankshaft, but i assume the flywheel/torque
conveter are bad.
