I have an S-10 pickup and a couple weeks ago started hearing the dreaded metal on metal grind. Thinking it was the starter I took it to a mechanic who checked everything and said it was the flywheel ($900 to repair). He then asked when I had my clutch done last and I told him it was 2 1/2 years ago. He said to take it back to the people who did the work because the flywheel should have been resurfaced and they should take care of this for me rather than me have to pay him for it.
I looked up my receipt and it does show that they had the flywheel resurfaced when they replaced my clutch. My question is- if they did resurface the flywheel should it still be OK 2 1/2 years later with normal use (appx 15,000 mi per year)). Is this something they should repair for free or do I just bite the bullet and have it done again?
