Presentation Description

The flywheel is a very important part in your BMW which is responsible for creating rotational energy by spinning repeatedly and then saving the energy for future use. Moreover, when the torque power of your engine is not being generated regularly, then the flywheel uses its rotational energy to fill in the gaps of missing energy. The flywheels are found in manual transmission cars and are absent in automatic transmission vehicle. Go through the slide to know the symptoms of a failing flywheel in a BMW car.

Symptoms of a Failing Flywheel in a BMW Car

Slide2:

A flywheel is a mechanical device whose purpose is to create rotational energy by spinning repeatedly and then saving the energy for future use.

Slide3:

In case, the torque power of your engine is not being generated regularly, then the flywheel uses its rotational energy to fill in the gaps of missing energy.

Slide4:

The flywheels are usually only found in manual transmission vehicles because the purpose of the flywheel is to guarantee the functionality of the gears.

Slide5:

In particular, when the driver presses the clutch and goes to switch gears, the flywheel will reduce the intensity of the vibrations for a smooth shift.

Slide6:

Below are the common symptoms of a failing flywheel in a BMW car.

Slide7:

Slipping gears

Slide8:

When you shift to a new gear and then notice that it slips back to the last gear you had it on, this is called gear slippage.

Slide9:

A bad flywheel will likely be the reason for this because it will cause grinding of the plate and a lot more friction overall.

Slide10:

And if the gear keeps slipping when you change it, then it will certainly impact your driving ability.

Slide11:

Unable to change gears

Slide12:

Sometimes you will find that instead of your gears slipping, you won’t be able to change your gears at all.

Slide13:

The flywheel would need to be in pretty bad shape for this symptom to occur.

Slide14:

And when you cannot switch gears, then you won’t be able to drive your car at all.

Slide15:

Burning smell

Slide16:

If there is a burning smell which consumes your passenger cabin, this could be attributed to many possible causes.

Slide17:

A bad flywheel could be one of those causes because of all the heat generated from the friction in the clutch.

Slide18:

If you have used the clutch at times when you weren’t supposed to, this could cause problems with the flywheel.

Slide19:

Vibrations in clutch

Slide20:

When you notice that clutch pedal is experiencing lots of vibrations, then your flywheel is likely going bad.

Slide21:

The vibrations will eventually get so bad that you will be able to feel them on the floor rather than just from the clutch pedal.

Slide22:

Check your flywheel’s spring mounting mechanism because that is likely causing these vibrations.

Slide23:

Conclusion

Slide24:

The flywheels do not last forever as they gradually become worn as they are consistently used in the BMW car.

Slide25:

If your flywheel becomes too worn out or damaged, there will be some noticeable symptoms that you won’t be able to ignore.

Slide26:

Do not let these symptoms carry on for too long or else it will impact the overall drivability of the BMW.
