Question about Cars & Trucks
Noticed a weird noise from engine like a lawnmower and slight acceleration lag. My brother took a look at it and says the flywheel might be the problem.I want to know what it might be and how much it will cost me
Flywheels very seldom give a problem and have nothing to do with acceleration problems . If it was loose you would have massive vibrations and would know of a problem . If it is an automatic the so called flywheel ( flex plate) have a tendency to crack at the crank mounting bolts and the cracks radiate out to where the torque converter mounts on and then there will be no drive or start action as the ring gear just falls away from the starter. The noise may be from the plate starting to fail so remove the inspection cover and check the plate for cracks or rust streaks which are cracks that you will not see.

Yes, I would get the transmission checked it sounds like it maybe getting ready to go out. Take the dipstick out & smell the fluid to see if it smells burnt...Hope this helps..

First get the fuel pressure checked, this will confirm the problem. --------- If the pressure checked low that means problem is with faulty pump and clogged fuel filter. -------- But if pressure checked ok, then get the MAF sensor cleaned, if that is not helping the it has to be replaced.------- Also get the throttle body and IAC valve cleaned.------ The idle air control valve is also located at throttle body.Clean both throttle body and IAC valve with throttle cleaner.-=========== click this link below to get more help, regarding vehicle lags when accelerating :------- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/vehicle-lags-when-accelerating.html ----------------- And for transmission will not shift down, click this link below:--- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/transmission-will-not-shift-down.html ------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
