    About Dual Mass Flywheel’s:

    A Dual Mass Flywheel is an energy storage device in manual transmissions. The main purpose of a dual mass flywheel is to dampen the vibrations and sound created by combustion engines when they are starting and changing gears, and when the clutch is used. Dual Mass Flywheels are especially helpful in multi cylinder engines which vibrate a lot more. This helps to make a ride smoother and protect the gear box at the same time. A Dual Mass Flywheel consists of two Flywheels joined via a bearing and springs to help with lowering the engine noise and vibration.

     

    Causes and Symptoms of a Damaged Dual Mass Flywheel:

    Gear trouble – If you find that you are struggling to change gears or if you are slipping out of gear, it could because of your dual mass flywheel. This could be a safety issue or could damage other parts such as the crank shaft or clutch.

    Clutch Drag:  The opposite to gear slippage. If you find you’re gears are not changing properly, For example, you can’t engage first gear, it is possible that the flywheel is damaged.

    Burning Smell – If you smell a burning smell, it could be due excessive heat of the flywheel. This could be because of wear and tear or “riding the clutch”. This is when you use the clutch pedal with the accelerator pedal to control your speed or to slow down. If you’re worried about burning smells in or around you’re car it could also be due to your clutch slipping.

    Clutch Vibrations – If you experience vibration in the clutch pedal or floor of your car it may be because of a damaged Dual Mass Flywheel. The Flywheel may not be dampening the vibrations properly.
