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.

Noise from motor flywheel


This is possible with engine off through a round inspection hole on transmission bell housing you can see the flywheel with a flashlight . now have someone rotate the engine by hand as you watch the flywheel a slight back and forth on rotation of engine can produce the noise and seeing the flywheel lag in rotation can prove the failure.

even if you have all the teeth on your flywheel it may still be slightly warped. which is why you should replace the flywheel or have it checked when you replace the clutch. this could cause your issue by placing the teeth slightly too far away or too close to the starter gear.

Flywheel area, possibly transmission


the noise might be from a loose bendix on the starter,
the bendix is a little gear in fron of the starter see if there is any visual point to see it nad make sure it keeps away from the flywheel if not have the starter repalced, this bendix have a spring to keep it away from the flywheel also with a flash ligh try to see the closes you can to the center of flywheel sometimes they get crack where they atached to the engine,
and on the shifting might be a bad transmission or the shifter has to be inspected for your mechanic
