Anybody who drives a car with a manual transmission operates a clutch dozens of times every day. We normally don’t think about it, but the main function of the clutch is to disengage the transmission from the motor. Since the engine ( when “on) is constantly spinning, you need the clutch to disconnect the transmission when shifting gears, when stopped at a stop light, or when going into reverse.
As times goes on, clutch will wear out. At some point the clutch disc will need to be replaced. It is a relatively simple operation. Other repairs may include replacement of stretched cable controls, or fixing a leak in the hydraulics.
When you bring your vehicle to Adams Autoworx for clutch repair, our nationally ASE certified technicians will first perform professional inspection, to get to the root cause of the problem. Once we know exactly what is wrong with your vehicle, we will let you know what it will take to fix it, and how long it will take. Most auto repairs can be completed the same day.
For your peace of mind, we will also perform a complimentary digital vehicle inspection and email you the results, so you know the state of your vehicle, and can plan for future repairs or maintenance.
When it comes to clutch replacement, there is no set time for this repair. Depending on how aggressively you use the clutch, whether you drive mostly on a highway or in stop-and-go traffic, the distance between clutch replacements can vary widely. It may be as little as 35,000 miles, and as much as 110,000 miles. Since there is no set time or mileage for clutch replacement, it’s important to pay attention to the symptoms of clutch problems:
Symptoms of potential clutch problems:
- grinding or scratching sound when shifting gears
- when you press the clutch pedal, the pedal travels less than usual, yet the clutch disengages
- problems shifting gears
- the engine's revolutions go up without increase in speed when going up a steep incline
- when overtaking another vehicle, the engine revs up but the speed does not increase
Any of the above symptoms should motivate you to bring your vehicle to our Castro Valley repair shop for a professional inspection.
