Can anyone tell me the common symptoms of a damaged flywheel?
Ive been having rough idle problems for a long time, recently had the clutch replaced, cleaned the carbon out of the engine, and did my 40k service - however im still having problems. Seems now the problem isnt just at idle, its running rough in all gears. Dead stop to start/reverse - the car shudders.
Looking at it from the outside, you can see the front wheels shake back and forth like it wants to go forwards and backwards at the same time.
So long story short, the mechanic says that im dealing with a bad flywheel. It has too much play and this is causing a wabbling effect in my transmission, making the rough idle and engaging/disengaging the clutch on its own.
Does this seem right to anyone?
just wanted some outside opinions before I cough up the dough to replace a part that I may not need to replace.
