It seems like my car no longer moves as quickly or as easily when it is in 3rd gear. I suspect the flywheel, hence the question: What does the flywheel effect if it has missing teeth? I have done a tune up, replaced the starter, but the starter might be defective. Also how do you tell if the starter is defective?
So two questions:
- What effects would missing teeth on the flywheel have?
- How can I tell if the starter is defective?
