Default 2006 Accord EX-V6 6-spd idle problem fixed

Well, it was the flywheel. The car idles as smooth as silk now.

First vehicle I've ever had with a bad Flywheel!

Here's an update;

The replaced the motor mounts, no change. Now they are replacing the
flywheel. This sounds more like the problem, since I stated it seems like
an imbalance, not a miss in firing.

I will post results when done!

PS, If this doesn't fix it, we will be discussing replacement of the car!

Did they actually replace the entire flywheel or was it a question of
merely tightening down the ring gear on the flywheel?

Only reason I ask is that I once had a similar, make that the same
problem, with a GM 6cyl product in the early 80's. Rough at idle but
smooth under load. Turned out the ring gear (into which the starter
engages) was loose and had shifted. Asked around and one of the
mechanics I spoke to suggested I drop the cover and try tightening it
up. That did the trick and all it took was about a half hour's time.

Glad to hear your problem is solved though, regardless of how it was
accomplished.

They replaced it. I will probably never know if it was maybe something
other than the wheel itself, but I truely believe it was out of balance the
way it shook the car.
I'm glad it's fixed!

Flywheels are balanced at the factory. You can see the holes they drill in
them to selectively remove metal.

Somebody at the factory (or the supplier) obviously messed yours up. This
is what warranties are for.
