didnt effect the running really... on autos, the flywheels are for starting...

it was a REALLY bad rattling/grinding sound at idle and cleared up at higher than 1,000 rpms.

I don't know what is wrong, was just wondering because mine was messed up to and had to replace it. Just hope it doesn't keep happening to me, that's why i thought we might have the same problem.
