Cell determinant (wellposedness)

I'm pretty sure there isn't a single thread in the forum dealing with this thema and I hope that somebody can shed some light on this.
checkMesh says my mesh is OK, but if I run "checkMesh -allGeometry -allTopology" I get a huge number of cells with small determinant that are written to a faceSet undeterminedCells.
I guess I need to change my numerical schemes, but in order to do that I need to understand how this small determinant values affect my simulations.
Can anybody please comment on that?
PS.- I know I could re-build the mesh and get rid of the low determinants, but this is not the point. I would like to understand their effect on the numerics.

I'm also interested in this.
Has anyone some experience with this issue? Does this even effect the simulation?

I'm interested too and can't find anywhere on this site that helps!
I realised the cells in question were extruded triangles; the extrusion resulted in all nodes of the wedges being in contact with a boundary condition: symmetry on one side, no slip on the other two: all nodes in each wedge are on a defined boundary. Perhaps that's the issue. They don't seem to be affecting solution too much.
