Question about Volvo S70
I am penny pinching these days and need your help. When I broughtmy car (Volvo S70 1999. AWD. 125k) in for its 120k check-up theymechanic was concerned that it took a little while for the car tostart, he checked it out and said nothing was wrong but to bring it inif it took longer or got worse.
Well, now it takes longer and sometimes there's a grinding noise.So I bring it in and he said, starter and flywheel -- $2750. Ouch!
Any thoughts? I was under the impression that it's rare for aflywheel to need to be replaced and that it wouldn't make a grindingnoise, but what do I know?
All counsel is greatly appreciated!
Yes if the starter is bad it will affect the fly wheel.You should have replace the start when you starting problems and you would not be replacing both.Find you good repair man that work on the side s70 is good car

We recently had the same problem with an 2000 S80 Volvo., does the transmission have to be taken out to replace the fly wheel???

Ordinarily, the only time a flywheel has anything done to it is when installing a new clutch in a manual transmission car. At that time, the flywheel's friction area is resurfaced on a lathe. The starter gets your car's engine going by turning the flywheel's teeth around its circumference, so what he is probably referring to is not so much the flywheel itself, but that the tteth are going bad. i looked around online and found new starters for around $150 and flywheels for $250, so unless $2300 for labor sounds reasonable to you, i would try taking it somewhere else, first.
Hope this was helpful,
