While waiting for my trans gaskets to arrive,

the shop noted that my flywheel had chips, so they replaced it. Does that happen often?

83,000 miles, FWIW

Why do they call it a flywheel? That implies lightness which is definitely not present.....

Assume the chipping was on the edge of the teeth where the starter motor engages. I would expect there would be some wear at 83K but whether it was excessive would have to be determined by someone that has seen a lot of engines.

IMO, the term flywheel is used because it is a common name that was around a long time before automatics and has become generic, easier to remember and say than flex plate and most everyone knows what is being discussed.
