I have a 1991 Jeep Cherokee, and it makes a ticking noise that seems to get louder when the car is warmer. At over 1000 rpm, the noise gets slightly faster and goes away. I looked at the flexplate, and it is wobbling. The outer part moves about .5-1cm. I tried tightening the bolts with a 6-inch wrench, but the bolts wouldn't move in either direction, and the whole plate just started to turn. Are they tight enough? Do I need to replace it? If so, how?

If I don't fix it, what will happen?

I suggest that you have a cracked flex plate. Worst that can happen is it leaves you stranded somewhere. Better pull that tranny and fix it

Sounds like you have not done this before. Requires some good car stands, Jack and basic tools. An inexpensive Jeep manual from Chilton or Haynes will give you the procedure
