The flywheel mounts on the end of the crankshaft and puts all the engine power to the transmission through the torque convertor which is bolted directly to it. If the flywheel is broken, the car isn't going to move very long or very far. It will be harder on gas and there is a good possibility that the engine could easily be over revved which creates a whole new set of expensive problems.

I realize it is a real pain to change but it's not something you can live without. Make sure that you get the proper torque settings for the flywheel to crank bolts. Overtightening has been known to create stress cracks in the flywheel and you get to do it again. Also make sure you don't lose the torque convertor bolts. They are a dealer only item and not cheap. They have an odd thread so they can't be replaced with anything else. Hope this helps.

1995 Buick road master I put a flywheel in now it's cutting my started keep putting new starters in is engine my no good

You keep replacing the starter motors?
The starter motor may be fitted incorrectly and isn't meshing with the ring gear properly.

It may be that ring gear - the teeth - on the flywheel are worn/damaged or even the wrong fit for the starter motor.

Another alternative is that the flywheel isn't torqued up correctly and consequently it - and the ring gear teeth - are out of line. However, I would have thought that an out of balance flywheel would also cause vibration problems. Your car runs okay?

94 Buick PA,225K...My Oil light keeps coming on, and there is a slight tapping in my engine,...what indicators would tell me that there's a major engine problem If I ran a proper diagnostic test on it?

The tapping is going to eventually wear out your camshaft, as the valve lash adjusters are not getting enough oil. The lack of oil may also cause premature wear of engine bearings. At 225K, there is no guarantee a new oil pump will solve the problem, as the bearing clearances may also be affecting the oil pressure. You may be able to extend the life using an oil additive. If you want to keep this car, i would try a new oil pump. If that doesn't fix the problem, you will need a complete engine rebuild. Let us know if you need instructions for replacing the oil pump, and thanks for using FixYa.

1984 Buick Skylark - 4 cylinder clutch problems

sounds like it needs the clutch replaced. Anytime it slips, it's because it's lose enough material that the pressure plate can't keep enough tension on the clutch plate and the flywheel. Likely, it was slipping and overheated, causing it to smoke(and probably smelled like someone grinding metal with an angle grinder.) This needs a clutch change, throwout bearing, pilot bearing, and a flywheel surfacing. There is no adjustment for these; the play only increases until it slips.

94 Buick Regal 3.8. Pings under load. All

Remove and inspect the spark plugs for heavy deposits or glazed-looking interior insulators. Make sure the plugs are the proper type for this engine. Heavy carbon build-up in the cylinder heads will cause pinging. If the ignition system is too advanced, it will also cause problems. Try a different brand of fuel. High engine temperatures can do the same (caused by poor cooling system or lean fuel/air mixture). If the check engine light is on, take the car to Autozone or a similar business that offers a free scan of the computer. This may provide additional clues. Hope some of this helps!
