comment How to extend the life of the dual mass flywheel in a diesel engine?
Thanks, I might give that a try when ever the DMF does fail. I dont drive the car very hard so it could should out as a reasonable option.

I'll try my best to lengthen the life of the DMF by driving as you mentioned and maybe avoiding traffic. Oren Mazors solution to use a single mass flywheel sounds good, but would probably not be a safe solution for the transmission for most cars?

Getting a normal single mass flywheel sounds like a good idea, but as ManiacZX says below, the single mass flywheel mightn't be good enough to reduce the strain on the transmission and hence cause damage to the more costly transmission. I suppose it does all depend on the make and age of the car too.
