Clutch Fly Wheel
The Clutch Fly Wheel is a heavy metal disc that is fitted to the rear of the engine's crankshaft. It is also called a flex plate, when it is attached to an automatic transmission. The pistons of an engine are offset from the center of the crankshaft and spark at different angles, causing the engine to shake and vibrate. The flywheel's heavy weight counteracts this vibration to keep the engine stable and balanced on its mounts. The flywheel also prevents the wear and tear of the drive shaft's universal joints and other drivetrain components.
The crankshaft converts the up-and-down motion of the pistons into rotary motion. However, owing to the fact that power is generated two or four times for four-cylinder or eight-cylinder engines, respectively, the crankshaft's rotary motion tends to be jerky. The flywheel's inertia aids in compensating for the jerky motion by keeping the crankshaft moving in between the piston firings.
A loose flywheel causes the engine to vibrate excessively or prevents the automobile from starting. If you hear a clacking or grinding noise once the ignition is turned on or get a burning smell while driving, it could be an indication of a worn flywheel. A damaged flywheel will also hinder the driver from switching gears smoothly. You should replace a faulty flywheel to prevent any further damage to your engine.
