Possible Flywheel Problem

1997 Ford Escort 2 Liter Manual.
The problem occurs after the car warms up and is driven after a little while. My car while just a normal start from a light will jump multiple times before accelerating smoothly. I don't have a problem with shifting and its not the clutch.

I am just wondering if there have been others with this problem and if machining or replacing the flywheel will fix this issue.

Re: Possible Flywheel Problem

Maybe the motor mounts are loose?

Re: Possible Flywheel Problem

Why would it not be a problem when the car is cold, if it were to be the motor mounts?

Re: Possible Flywheel Problem

How long does it run until the problem occurs? Is it after shifting a lot of times? Does it start gradually and get worse as use the clutch more?

Re: Possible Flywheel Problem

Cant see how a flywheel would cause your complaint unless car has a DMF. Seems more like a misfire under load / pulling away .

Possibly bad plug, wires or coil. Cleaning the MAF sensor might help.
