Every vehicle has a mechanical device called a flywheel. This is a round-shaped device which generates energy from rotating and then stores that energy for later use. In situations where the engine torque is intermittent, the flywheel will supplement this with its own stored rotational energy. You would often find flywheels in cars with manual transmissions rather than automatic transmissions. The flywheel ensures that the gears of a manual vehicle are functioning properly as the driver is using the clutch. It also keeps the vehicle from vibrating so much as well.
From manual to automatic transmission repair, FX Mobile Mechanic Services knows how to fix the problem. Our knowledgeable auto experts will diagnose the situation and help you make a decision. Leave the dirty work to us!
Our competitively priced transmission services include:
Automatic Transmissions shift between gears automatically to optimize driving, and changes gears based on the driver's throttle pedal, vehicle speed, engine speed, and vehicle load. Typical automatic transmissions have 4-5 forward gear ratios, a Reverse, Park, and Neutral gear. Shifting gears occur automatically once the car is in Drive and there is no need for a clutch pedal or gear shift like there is in a Manual Transmission. Automatic transmission repair is complicated based on all the components that make it up, and you need to have any automatic transmission issues properly assessed by auto mechanics. Call to talk to the Mechanics of FX Mobile Mechanic Services about your transmission problems.
There are clutches in both automatic and manual transmission cars, and different types of clutches. When shifting gears, the clutch engages and disengages from the flywheel and transfers the torque through the transmission. Clutches should help your vehicle start and shift gears smoothly. The clutch in your car receives a lot of use and can eventually wear out. If your clutch begins slipping irregularly or is making noises that are raising suspicion, contact to see if clutch replacement is necessary.
FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE TRANSMISSION
A four-wheel (4x4) drive vehicle has differential gears, both front and rear axles, and a transfer case attached to the transmission. Four-wheel drive vehicles demand maintenance on the transfer case, front differentials, rear differentials, and transmission fluids. Visit FX Mobile Mechanic Services for service on your four-wheel drive transmission services.
FRONT-WHEEL DRIVE TRANSMISSION
If your vehicle has front-wheel drive, the engine drives the front wheels only. The power is routed through the transmission to the final drive where it is split and sent to the two front wheels through the drive axles. The engine, transmission, and additional hardware are all located in the front of the car. If you are in need, FX Mobile Mechanic Services will gladly repair front-wheel drive transmission vehicles.
Driving a vehicle with a Manual Transmission requires using the clutch pedal and gear shift to manually shift gears based on the speed of the vehicle. Manual transmissions have been built with anywhere from two to eight gears. Front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive are the two main configurations for manual transmissions. Typically, manual transmissions require less maintenance than automatic transmissions. FX Mobile Mechanic Services, our auto Mechanics can diagnose your vehicle and then recommend the transmission repair or transmission service you need to ensure safety and improve the lifetime of your vehicle.
BAD FLYWHEEL SYMPTOMS
If the flywheel of your vehicle starts going bad, there are easily recognizable symptoms that you can watch out for. Firstly, as you go to change gears in your vehicle, the gears may slip. Once this happens, then you won’t be able to change gears. Either that or the gears may shift on their own without your control. Most drivers experience their current gear shifting to the previous gear that they had it on before. This is an example of what gear slippage looks like. As it continues to happen, the pressure plate will grind and the engine oil will become contaminated. This only causes the gear slippage problem to happen more frequently and get worse. Soon the grinding noises will become louder and you won’t even be able to change gears after you start the engine.
Aside from gear slippage, you will notice a burning smell that will consume the interior of the vehicle. This smell is generated when the clutch is being used improperly, whether from a bad flywheel or an inexperienced driver. The facings of the clutch produce a lot of heat and the odor becomes quite extensive as time goes on. Along with this, there will be vibrations coming from the floor each time you operate the clutch. These vibrations indicate that the flywheel’s spring mount feature has gone bad. As you probably know, the spring mount is what normally reduces the vibrations that are generated from the clutch being used. This is only more proof that you have a bad flywheel and it needs to be replaced.
So far, we’ve discussed the most common symptoms of a bad flywheel. There may be other symptoms too but they are harder to diagnose because there are other problems which could cause them to occur. One of which is a chattered clutch that is the result of grooves or damage done to the flywheel. But the easy thing about recognizing the symptoms of a bad flywheel is that they’re almost all the same, no matter what type of vehicle you are driving. The best thing for you to do is to bring your vehicle to a professional automotive technician if you notice any of these symptoms happening.
FLYWHEEL REPLACEMENT COST
The replacement cost of a flywheel can range considerably. There are some flywheel parts which only cost $35 while others cost as much as $300-400. It all depends on what type of car you drive and how durable the flywheel is. Then, of course, you have to consider the labor costs of doing the replacement job. Since most auto mechanics charge about $60 to $110 per hour, you could be looking at paying close to $400-500 just for labor. The reason for this is that the flywheel is located on the engine and it is harder for the mechanics to take out and replace. This requires more time which means you’ll be paying more money.
In total, you could be looking at anywhere between $350 and $1,000. If you’re an experienced mechanic who knows how to replace a flywheel or you have a friend who is, then it would be better to use this option rather than paying for the labor. It will save you a lot of money this way.
