The Engine Flywheel is the next place to check for errors, but what is Engine flywheel?

AUTOMOBILE ENGINE FLYWHEEL
To run a check on the engine flywheel you need to remove the Kickstarter motor and possibly set your transmission to Neutral and try to rotate the crankshaft by turning the middle dart on the crankshaft pulley utilizing a ratchet or breaker bar and an attachment. You’ll discover this pulley at the front and base of the motor square.
This pulley pivots the drive or serpentine belt to run the alternator, guiding siphon and different parts. Contingent upon your vehicle display, you may need to evacuate a wheel to access the pulley focus jolt. Watch the flywheel as it turns and ensures the teeth are in great condition.
Absent or harmed teeth will keep the starter engine from wrenching the motor. Supplant the flywheel, if important
