About Our Flywheel Grinding Services
Diesel engines with manual transmissions have a flywheel that is located on the end of the crankshaft. The flywheel is a critical connector for your engine and clutch assembly. The flywheel in your heavy-duty truck provides the initial inertia to start your diesel engine, and it also provides the rotational inertia to keep the engine going and prevent stalling when you lift your foot off the accelerator. The flywheel is also responsible for reducing vibration by smoothing out the powerstroke as each cylinder fires, it balances the engine as it is specifically weighted the engine’s crankshaft, and most importantly, the flywheel connects the engine to the transmission through the clutch in order to provide power to your truck’s wheels.
The flywheel is a heavy-duty component in your truck and manufacturers build this part to withstand the wear and tear that its role demands. However, over time the flywheel is not immune to damage and wear. Because of the excessive friction and temperatures that this component is exposed to, it can develop hot spots which can cause excessive vibration, slipping gears or a burning smell.
