COULD THIS BE A FLY WHEEL PROBLEM? I HEARD THEY WERE VERY EXPENSIVE.

My daughter's car recently had an oil change. Shortly thereafter there has been a knocking sound and the engine is physically shaking when idling. She has never had any transmission problems. It's an automatic and it has always shifted great. The repair guy said it might be a fly wheel problem.

I would look at basics first. Check the motor mounts before talking about a major repair like the flywheel. I have not seen more than a handfull of flywheels go bad over the past years.
I would get a second opinion.
