Recently I looked under the engine and looked how this 2.5 DOHC engine for any awkward problem.

I realized that when the car is running, there is two holes connected through the engine to the transmission was visible to see a silver plate spinning. I am thinking that piece must be the transmission plate.

Now my question is that if I run into rain or flood, that plate will get wet and bring up all the water into the transmission? Is there any piece of aftermarket cover plate that I can use to cover this up? Or is that a normal opening for hot air?

Lol. chances of getting water in there are damn slim. and it won't do much even if it did.

Do you mean this one... um, yeah, sorta hidden. well if you do, you'll see the hole is blocked by a peice of plastic. a dealer will be able to order one in for you.

I think he's talking about the flywheel. I might be wrong though.

When the car isn't running can you see teeth on the outside of said silver plate?

Ya he's talking about the flywheel or more likely the flex plate, if its an auto trany. if its an auto then it doesn't really mater, just don't go running through the dirt. It its a manual than you need to seal that up quick or you can ruin your clutch from road debris and water.
