I have a 98 honda passport. i've replaced the flywheel/flexiplate three times. mechanics doesn't know what's wrong. they think it has to do with the transmission so i had the transmission replaced too. can you please tell me what's causing the flywheel to break? i have a feeling i'ts going to break again.
I think it will break again because i don't think the problem is the transmission. and even after the trans. was replaced the vehicle still have the same uncertain sound when i accelerate after a stop signal which takes a while to catch speed and i can also feel a stiffness in the gas pedal. and no, i don't push the gas hard before i drive off you suggest that

Re: repeated broken flywheel/flexiplate
Hi when you drove the car before was the box changing the gears ok if not it puts extra tension on the retaining bolts or did the flex plate break around the crankshaft and how do you drive the car if you like to set off fast it will have the same effect and did you change the converter as well yates210456

Remove the inspection plate and undo the bolts attaching the torque converter to the flex plate Remove transmission If you are not familiar with that procedure give the job to a mechanic. Remove the clutch if not auto again know how to replace clutch pressure plate and clutch plate. Something tells me that the flywheel isn't stripped but the flexiplate has fractured as it is unusual for the teeth of the ring gear to be completely stripped. Moving on use an impact gun to undo the bolts holding on the flywheel/flex plate Installation is reverse to removal. But I recommend you have good advice handy to do this job
Get into your passport and unlock all doors. Leave drivers door open. Put key into ignition. Turn to ON (not start), then OFF three times within 5 seconds. Close and open the drivers door twice. Turn key to ON then OFF 5 times within 5 seconds. Close then open the drivers door. Press either the lock or unlock button on the remote. Doors will lock then unlock. Press the button again. Doors will lock then unlock again. Close door to finish programming. If it doesnt work, try it again but turn the key faster. You have to do it all pretty quick, but I had it done on the second try.
The problem is most certainly the fuel level sending unit - not the fuel pump. However the mechanic was right in a sense that if you're going to pay the labor cost to drain and purge the gas tank to replace the sending unit you might as well replace the pump at the same time, since you have to take it off to get to the real problem.

Make sure you have the correct factory Honda starter in your car , if its an aftermarket starter they may have replaced with cheapo starter,sometime the teeth that engauge starter to your flexplate will not mesh properly,because there different,causing the flex plate to fail. I had the same problem. I went thru 2 before I found this out..Hope this helps.
