I have a 2005 Nissan Armada. I love my truck and just recently have had to replace the flywheel 3 times in 18 months. The first flywheel tore up the starter also. So after a new starter and a new flywheel it was fine until I noticed the rattling sound. I have replaced it 2 after the initial flywheel and no one can pinpoint the problem. Any suggestions, knowledge or comments? There is no damage to the teeth of the flywheel. I attached pic of the flywheel as one whole piece. The second pic, actually the 1st pic, shows how the cover plate now looks. The only difference is the small circular part is still attached to the flywheel. Help!!!!
Something out of balance? Does your engine idle smoothly when the flywheel is replaced? I'm also wondering whether the starter replacement might be connected.....the problem might be in the starter (not retracting, putting a sideways load on the flywheel?), and you're just seeing it in the flywheel. Also, where are you getting your replacement flywheels? Are they new or from a used vehicle?
This is the first time I've heard of a flywheel cracking on our trucks. You may also want to go over to ClubTitan, there are way more members and experience over there than here, and the drivetrain on their trucks is the same as yours.
