New Flywheel Out. Yeaaaaa!

Took the car in for oil change and smell coming from vents.
Also, asked them to check on the flywheel and clutch.
Called them today after not hearing anything and was told
they were waiting on the new flywheel and clutch.

The upgrade is for the flywheel and they are putting on a new
clutch to go with it.

So, if you have the knocking sound, especial when cold. Sound goes
away with pedal pushed in. I would take it in and get the upgrade.

Yaaaaah. I got a new flywheel. Yaaaah!!!!!!!!!

Wait are you saying they came out with a new one instead of the dual mass flywheel or you are just getting another one put on?

Well I spoke with SVT just yesterday, and they said the fix was still in the works. So.... whats the truth here? I had the flywheel, clutch and transmission replaced last summer.

That could be a long wait. If you get it fixed quickly then it seems likely that what you are getting is just new parts, the same ones that are already in there, just new. I dunno... this rumor has been circulating for a long time now and no one has had any concrete proof that Ford has or is releasing a new/revised flywheel or clutch. I just thank God every day that my car isn't having this problem yet.
