Possible Flywheel Failure. Zetec-S Fiesta 1.6 Tdci
Posted 07 February 2013 - 05:33 PM
I went to look at one today with 48,000 miles on the clock and when i started it up, there was a slight rocking movement as the car ticked over. I was just wondering if this is normal for these engines, especially considering the low miles it has covered? I currently own a Corsa 1.3 CDTi which has more mileage but there is no rocking movement/vibrating on idle. I went to see another Fiesta a couple of years ago where the rocking was a lot worse than the car i viewed today so i put it down to the flywheel. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

The rocking movement could be down to a worn engine or gearbox mount

Won't be the flywheel, went to buy a similar age car for a mate and the engine mountings were worn. Repeated fast take-offs!
which probably means the flywheel will be needing done soon after the mountings lol
