The clutch is a vital piece of any car or truck. It is the link between the engine and the transmission, which means it plays an extraordinary role in any vehicle’s everyday workings. The clutch essentially transfers rotational power from the engine to the wheels. They also play significant roles in shifting, stopping, and turning the car or truck off. For instance, when you brake, the clutch temporarily breaks the connection between the engine and the wheels. Manufacturers design these crucial parts to last a lifetime, but that doesn’t mean they cannot fail. We’re here when they do. If you suspect an issue, let us inspect your clutch today.
Performance Clutch Installation
Our team can also upgrade your clutch to high-performance in many cars and trucks for street, racing, or off-roading. These aftermarket clutches are designed for additional gripping power and typically last much longer than your vehicle’s traditional clutch. Made with stronger material and engineered to apply more clamping force, your heavy-duty clutch will never slip. However, they aren’t without their drawback. A heavy-duty clutch normally requires much more pressure to operate. If you require heavy-duty clutch repair service, contact our team today to get started.

Typical Signs of Clutch Failure
The clutch on a manual transmission is complex. There are dozens of components, and if one fails, the clutch can no longer provide the crucial link between the engine and wheels your vehicle need to drive safely. Ignoring or not being aware of the warning signs that your clutch is beginning to fail will only lead to more costly repair or a total replacement down the line. Ensure that you and your family are safe by understanding the warning signs of a failed clutch. If you notice any of these signs, then it’s time to bring your vehicle in for a service.
When you release the clutch pedal, and your vehicle continues to rev higher, this may be a sign of your clutch pedal slipping. A slipping clutch is the result of friction that wears away at your clutch, so it has difficulty fully engaging. While your vehicle may still be drivable, it isn’t a problem that will resolve itself.
Soft Clutch Pedal
A softy clutch pedal is one of the most common issues we see with the clutch. It results from issues with the hydraulic system, reservoir, hoses, pipes, or the master cylinder. If the clutch pedal feels “spongy” or is slow to respond, contact our team today.
There are a number of reasons why your vehicle may smell, and none of them are good. However, if you notice a burning smell when you’re changing gears, it is a sign that your vehicle’s clutch is slipping. The smell is the result of friction caused by the clutch attempting to engage.
The clutch pedal should never vibrate or pulsate when you press or depress it. There are countless rotating and moving parts in the clutch, so any number of them can cause a moving clutch pedal. It could also be a sign of uneven wear in the parts.
When left in neutral or while changing gears, your engine’s clutch should operate smoothly. If you hear any noises such as rattling, scraping, or grinding when you engage or disengage the clutch or press the clutch pedal, something is wrong. There are numerous causes, including worn disc lining and warped pressure plates.
