I am replacing the clutch in my 02 wagon as it is slipping occasionally. How do I know if the flywheel should be replaced as well? The car has 150K + miles.
Any recommendations on which flywheel? I am assuming oem.
Or just take the flywheel to a machine shop and get it resurfaced for abour $40-60
If it shows coloration indicating hot spotting, I would veer away from having it resurfaced.. although if it looks fine then you could get away with simply resurfacing it (I would get it balanced as well).
If you're wanting to go light, do not get anything lighter than the ACT StreetLite. At 13.9lbs it's just heavy enough not to cause problems.
I really don't want to compromise the reliability of the car. I'm inclined to go OEM. I haven't done any mods to it.
Probably a wise choice.
I went OEM on the flywheel, just replaced the clutch on friday. After doing a ton of research, it seemed almost every person with the ACT streelite or Exedy fw502, had bad deceleration clutch noise that I personally couldn't live with.
