Question about 2008 Subaru Impreza Wrx
Just had a new flywheel and clutch installed. Car sounds like a diesel now when I start it but goes away as soon as it starts. Tech says its because flywheel gears arent polished?
If you had a flywheel replaced it is possible that it is not reinstalled properly. Check for engine vibration at idle . Check that the starter is in correctly. IT appears that the starter pinion is not meshing correctly with the ring gear and that is your noise . It goes after starting because the pinion disengages from the ring gear. The problem is a misalignment between the pin ion and the flywheel ring gear ( nothing at all about polished gears ). IT is all in the installation of the flywheel -starter and gear box.
