What does the flywheel do?
The flywheel is a disc that is bolted to your vehicle’s crankshaft and it has several important jobs when it comes to the operation of your car. Its main job is to improve the power delivery of your engine by providing a continuous source of rotational energy. Since the flywheel needs a large amount of torque to get it rotating and also needs a large amount torque to slow it down, it is very effective in conserving momentum. The flywheel works alongside the clutch to control the transfer of power between the transmission and engine. When the clutch is disengaged, this flow of power is interrupted. This allows for gears to be changed. The flywheel has several small teeth around it. The purpose of the teeth is to allow the starter to engage it, causing the engine to turn over.
What are the benefits of skimming the flywheel?
Prevent clutch damage: A worn or damaged flywheel can affect the operation of your clutch, resulting in it slipping more often. Over time, this can cause expensive clutch damage. Resurfacing the flywheel at the same time as clutch repairs allows the clutch to function smoothly and increase lifespan.
Smoother gear change: When the flywheel has a flat, score-free surface, the clutch will be able to engage and disengage much more smoothly. This will allow easier gear changes and your overall driving experience smoother. If you notice your clutch is slipping, or the vehicle does not change gears as smoothly, consider inspecting the flywheel as well as the clutch.
Preventative maintenance: Depending on the flywheels condition, it may be resurfaced as a form of preventative maintenance when the clutch is replaced. As the clutch disc wears, its lining will lose the ability to grip the flywheel. The disc then begins to slip, creating a large amount of heat. This heat can cause the flywheel to harden over time and potentially crack. Skimming or resurfacing the flywheel removes layers of hardened metal from the flywheel. By combining the skimming of the flywheel with a clutch replacement, you are saving yourself time and money doing everything at once.
How do I know if my flywheel is worn?
We suggest that your flywheel may need resurfacing or replacing if
Clutch slipping – When a flywheel needs resurfacing or replacing, it will cause can your clutch to slip due to being scored or glazed.
Burning smell – When the flywheel becomes badly scored, less surface area of the clutch plate comes in contact and you may notice a strong burning smell. This happens due to the excess heat generated by the clutch.
Vibrations – with an overheated and warped surface of the flywheel you may also experience vibrations coming from the clutch. These vibrations may eventually get so bad that you will be able to feel them through the body of your vehicle.
