Question: A mechanic just rplaced my clutch and says when he took it for a test drive it made a clunking nois

My clutch would slip when driving in traffic and I brought it in to have examined. They told me the clutch plate needed to be replaced. After replacement the mechanic took the car for a test drive and said there is a clunking noise ( which wasnt there before.) Now he says the flywheel needs to be replaced. Is this something he may have messed up putting everything back together? Or is it normal for a car to not show signs of flywheel problems until after replacement of clutch?

When he haad the clutch out he should have told you it needed to be replace or turned. The big problem I have it a flywheel will not cause a clunk. It would have to be something else. You mite want to another shhop look at it.
