Default rattling noise flex plate ?

My son has a 2002 ram 1500 4wd, it has had a noise coming from the bell housing area for the last couple of weeks , it usaually goes away after a few minutes , but now its constantly making noise. we put a motor in it this summer and have had no trouble with the truck, my thoughts are the flexplate is cracked or torque converter bolts are loose. any other thoughts would help and what do you think would be the best way to change the flexplate . the noise sound like a loud rattle. Thanks Bruce

That's the exact same two things I would have recommended checking as well.
