Ford transit 2.4 2007. We have fitted a new dual mass flywheel

Customer Question

Ford transit 2.4 2007. We have fitted a new dual mass flywheel and clutch kit LUK make. Now the van struggles to start and sometimes cuts out after firing up at first.

when you fitted the new flywheel did you check that the dowel position on the back of the crank is in the same position as the old flywheel?

The reason I ask is that there are some missing 'teeth' / a gap in the holes drilled into the flywheel which mark TDC on the engineand these missing teeth must be correctly aligned to the crank dowel

If not , or if the crank dowel wasn't fitted then your TDC mark will be out of time and produce the symptoms you describe
