Flywheel Resurfacing

From time to time, flywheel resurfacing is needed. The resurfacing of a flywheel is when the surface gets fixed to a machine in order to cut a very thin layer of metal off the surface. This process exposes fresh metal to the disk, which ultimately provides a slight roughening of the surface and improves the grip of the flywheel. When the flywheel loses grip, it becomes unsafe to use.

There are some issues that you may have that indicate your flywheel is in need of resurfacing, including sluggish accelerations and a difficulty shifting. Learn more about flywheel resurfacing and why it is important.

Flywheel Grinding

When it comes to flywheel grinding, this refers to both the problem and the solution. The flywheel works by balancing out the crankshaft and creating a connection between the transmission and the engine. However, due to is proximity to the clutch plate, the flywheel experiences high temperatures. Over time, these high temperatures will eventually damage the flywheel by causing heat stresses and the expedite the usual wear and tear.

Some signs you may be having issues is when the flywheel becomes very smooth, pitted or scratched. Hot spots can also warp the surface or create bumpy areas. All of these issues will hamper the ability for the flywheel to work properly. And in some cases, you actually hear a grinding sound, hence "flywheel grinding."
