Its is totally acceptable to reuse a flywheel as long as it was machined to where a new finish was achieved.A machine shop will cut off about .020"-.050" to achieve a new,machined finsih.Same concept as turning brake rotors when performing a brake job.Have the clutch hydraulics checked,as this is what applies and releases the clutch when actuating the pedal.The clutch pedal engagement point is also adjustable up under the dash.One thing to remember when driving a manual trans vehicle is,for example,when sitting at a stop light.apply the brake and sit still.I can't tell you how many times i've seen people sit at a stop light,and rock the vehicle back and forth by applying then relasing the clutch pedal,causing the vehicle to pull forward a couple feet,then roll back a couple feet,pull forward,and roll back.This severely shortens the lifespan of the clutch,as it gets TOO hot.If at a traffic light,just apply the brake and sit still.There are correct and incorrect ways to drive a manual trans vehicle,all of which is determinate of how long the clutch will last.

Could be a noisy valve or lifter in the engine, or an exhaust leak.
Can you make the noise happen by revving up the engine with the car parked ?

bring it to your dealer, its still under warranty. There seems to be a problem with your electronic throttle system. Have it checked before it causes an accident. Hopefully this helps

Engine has no pull


I'm not sure what you mean by "the RPMs go way". If you meant that the RPM goes up high, then it sounds like the clutch is slipping. I think your model will have a hydraulic clutch, which is non-adjustable, so the clutch will need to be replaced. This sounds the most likely scenario, given the high clutch pedal take-up point you described. However, if you meant that the RPM's go away (or drop down), then it might be an ignition misfire, but I need more info.
