Default Symptoms of a bad flywheel???

I'm starting to feel some weird stuff when I drive around. Maybe bad flywheel? I'm not sure..
So here goes...

1. When I give it moderate gas (especially when it's cold) through 1st through 3rd, it feels like the clutch is slipping...like the car kinda jerks...not very consistent/smooth even though the gas is at at the same spot.. Understand what I'm saying??

2. Feels like I have a 4-puck. I've driven other cars with the same exact clutch that I have..and it feels nothing like my car. When I start off in their cars, it's all smooth. In mine, feels like it's slippig a little. But the clutch still grabs like it was new. Also, reverse is hard to accomplish smoothly. I have to rev it up to 3k before it become somewhat smooth.

Not sure what's up. Hopefully those last two things made some sense. Let me know if you need anything else.

Do you have any chattering noise? My flywheel wore out of spec., and it felt like a slipping clutch, so I order a clutch and the disc turns out to be good, then I focused my attention to the flywheel, sure enough, it was way out of spec.

First make sure all of your hydraulic stuff for your tranny is good. If thats not it, sounds to me like a flywheel that has some heat spots. Only way to tell is to take the trans off.
