If you have a manual transmission (4 or 5 speed with clutch) the flywheel is the whirling counter balance item that holds both the clutch disk and the pressure plate system. It also has a toothed edge which your starter engages to start the motor. It's normal location is directly at the aft position of the end of the rear crankshaft (with respect to a real wheel drive vehicle) If you have a transverse mounted engine (engine sits in car with front & rear oriented towards the front wheels) it can be at either side of the vehicle. You need to find the starter and that will be the same location as the flywheel.
Now, your engine can be locked up for several reasons, not the least of which is a valve (internal to engine) that controls the air gas mix to enter the cylinder may possibly have broken loose and lodged itself in a manner that prevents the crankshaft from further movement until the broken valve is removed. This requires a complete removal of the cylinder head and can also potentially require replacement of the piston in that cylinder. You are talking about a MAJOR engine job here. That is only ONE potential scenario for a locked up engine. Tell me more of what preceeded the lockup for alternative possible scenarios.

Flywheel is always between the transmission and engine, inside the large flared part of the trans front. To check to see if the engine is locked up, try turning the engine by putting a socket on the front crankshaft pulley bolt (lowest pulley with belts on it, coming out of the engine front) and turning it with a decent length ratchet.

Instead of trying to turn fly wheel, try to turn the crank pulley, located on front of motor it is the main pulley.

Fly wheel bolts keep coming lose


this happens when the flywheel is out of balance. Check that the mount area is clean and free of burrs on the crank shaft. Ensure that the threads in the crank shaft are burr free. ensure that if a dowel is used to locate the flywheel that it is in place . Use the fly wheel bolts once on;y. Use a low strength loc-tite compound on the bolt threads and tighten to specified tension (normally around 90-100ft/lbs.) use a tension wrench for this.. Next pay attention to the clutch pressure plate and that it is being held in place by the correct bolts . Small shanks that act as dowels to locate the plate exactly in position. Use locating dowels if there is holes in the flywheel for them . clamp a flat bar to thye engine flange and place it at the circumference of the flywheel and turn the engine over and see if it hits the bar in one spot or is the same distance away all the way around . Adjust the space till there is virtually no clearance under the bar. Then place the bar on the face of the flywheel and see if the flywheel is wobbling against the bar .You can use a dial indicator for these to teats .

replace the starter and the flywheel-the bad starter has not engaged the teeth on the flywheel fully and has ground some teeth off so you'll fit that space every once in a while-cheers Denny

Inspect the flywheel, Remove the starter and turn the engine with a socket from the front damper while checking the flywheel for missing teeth. Also check that is not cracked.

Installing piloet bearring in flywheel


Hi Snale, The bearing is located inthe center of the fly wheel. To gain acsess means removing the gearbox, clutch assembly and flywheel. Gain access from the back of the flywheel. Tap out the failed bearing, fit in the replacement and refit the flywheel. Make sure to torque the fly wheel bolts to the required specs. This is a major undertaking and even though the bearing is very small the job is very big. Regards John

1994 Camry 4 Cylinder-Starter spins fine but does not seem to engage the flywheel. I have a new starter and battery. Im not ready to get into the flywheel. What else can I test to see why its not engaging...


Well, the easiest solution is to pull the starter and bench test it. Likely areas for your issue is the starter drive, and flywheel teeth. You need to inspect the teeth of the flywheel.

one quick test would be to manually turn the engine to another location and fresh teeth on the flywheel, and try starting again. Engines tend to stop at some spots, and that can cause unusual wear on teeth in one small location.

Sometimes rebuilt starter do not get all new parts, but only what is failing, so it is possible to get a malfunctioning starter drive. Starter drive failure usually turns the engine over briefly, then the starter disengauges....

Fly wheel problem on a jeep


if its a 4JX1 diesel, yes it goes in 1 spot yet it can be bolted up in every location
put crank pulley timing mark to TDC can also check by removing cam belt top cover and check timing mark aligned up with mark at 12 O clock then flywheel has small notch in edge that must go at 6 O clock (facing down) look closely it is hard to see due to flywheel sunk into back of block.
