Dual Mass Flywheel


The dual-mass flywheel absorbs the torque fluctuations of the engines in automobiles and provides a smoother and linear power transmission of the engine. This system, which has two masses, takes the torque from the primary mass and transfers it to the secondary mass to absorb vibrations and torque fluctuations. In this way, the power of the engine is transmitted to the gearbox in a healthier way, increasing driving comfort. These dual mass flywheel is generally used in vehicles with automatic or manual transmission. They are especially common in diesel engines, heavy vehicles and high torque applications. This system makes the engine more comfortable and ensures long-lasting operation of the engine.

Dual Mass Flywheel Maintenance

• Regular checks play a critical role in dual mass flywheel maintenance. During vehicle maintenance, especially when examining clutch and transmission systems, the dual mass flywheel should also be reviewed. Therefore, the physical condition of the flywheel and its connection points should be checked at every maintenance. It is important to observe for cracks, wear or loose parts.

• Using quality fuel improves engine performance and enables the flywheel to operate more efficiently. The quality of the fuel ensures smooth operation of the engine and prevents the flywheel from being exposed to excessive vibration. However, it is very important to check and change engine oil regularly. The use of appropriate oil contributes to the smooth operation of the flywheel and engine.

• Clutch use also directly affects flywheel life. It reduces wear by using the clutch gently and correctly. For example, it is preferred to press the clutch pedal in a more controlled manner rather than pressing it hard or suddenly. Additionally, avoiding holding the clutch down unnecessarily can extend the life of the flywheel.

• In order to maintain the performance of the vehicle and minimize flywheel wear, the parts that are the source of vibrations in the vehicle must be checked regularly. Since engine malfunction or transmission problems will put extra load on the flywheel, it must be ensured that the transmission and engine are working properly.

• Finally, it is very important to consider problems with the clutch and flywheel system. When noise, vibration or abnormalities in the clutch pedal are noticed, immediately consulting a specialist will be critical for early diagnosis and repair. In this way, it will be possible to extend its life by preventing problems that may occur in the flywheel and other components.

Dual Mass Flywheel Failure

Dual mass flywheel failures can generally occur as a result of wear, environmental factors and usage conditions. As the vehicle reaches high kilometers over time, its internal components naturally wear out, and this wear can cause the flywheel to lose its function. Another factor is the result of incorrect use. For example; Improper and frequent gear shifting can cause overload and premature wear of the flywheel. Aggressive driving style in heavy vehicles causes overload to the flywheel. Overheating can also cause deformation in internal components, which may result in malfunction as a result of long-term heavy use or overload. In addition, poor quality or incompatible spare parts also affect the life of the flywheel.
