Starter Grind

21 February 2013 - 10:26 AM

Hello all, might as well start the new membership with a question, my new 04 mondeo 2.0tdci has come with a promise of a new clutch / flywheel 8kmiles ago, however, on starting it, there is a graunch sound similar to one cog slipping over another.
After red lights on and waiting for 5 seconds, turning the key sometimes starts it ok, sometimes it doesnt. A few times I have had to rock the car in gear before it is catchable by the starter.

Is this something to be expected with a new flywheel, or is it possible that it isnt new and has worn spots.

Does the flywheel come to rest in particular positions?

Evening all, After vectras, its nice to be able to say the I'm back to fords. I was a committed escort user long long ago, but these days practicality can only be met with a newly aquired 04 mondeo. I'll gladly participate in any forums, I will, but I suspect that I'll be asking more questions than I answer. Thanks
