I just replaced all those parts and more and it was under $2k. The flywheel is built in 2 pieces so it’s possible the pieces became damaged through normal wear or is defective. I got the clutchmaster flywheel from Modern Performance and its a solid one piece. If your transmission warranty is still good they should replace it.Well it's sad to write this, but my Dart is done.
Last Sunday it suddenly started making a loud noise and shaking. Moments afterwards it gave a transmission error code, then wouldn't shift out of gear while I idled it to a stop. Diagnosis came back that the flywheel broke.
How? Who knows. Every time I ask they give me a funny look. Like they're just as confused as I am that it happened.
In any case, the cost of repair is $2800. Needs a flywheel, both clutches (ddct), bearings, ect. Even if I wanted to fix it up and sell the Dart for something else, it would put me in the hole due to body work required. Mostly though, I can't afford that. It's been fun, but it's finally broken beyond what I can reasonably repair, and even trust the vehicle at this point.
Had it towed back to my driveway, and I'll be listing some of the mods here to sell so I can get a down payment for a loan on a cheap used car.
I really never thought this day would come, but it appears that it has.
