Warning Signs of a Failed Clutch

Some modern cars are now made with manual transmissions. Of course, nothing is full proof. As sophisticated as these modern transmissions can be, errors can make those gearshifts considerably less smooth. The check engine light can often be one of the first telltale signs that your car is having trouble.

When an automotive clutch fails, you might notice some strange sounds or vibrations when something goes awry with your vehicle’s clutch assembly. In other situations, your transmission might shift gears in unpredictable ways, resulting in uneven speeds and inconsistencies while driving. Your car may sound like it’s trying to go 100 miles per hour when it’s only traveling at 50, which is known as a clutch slipping in most cases. Additionally, there might be a few seconds delay when you shift each gear.

Technicians at A-Affordable Transmissions Center are Clutch Repair Experts

While some of these problems might seem negligible in the moment, ignoring such issues could make the situation worse. Ignoring these problems decrease the lifespan of your clutch over time and increases the costs of clutch repair.

The history of the automotive clutch assembly

The first development of the twin-clutch or dual-clutch transmission started in the early part of 1980 under the guidance of Harry Webster. Initially, the control systems were based on patents filed in July 1981. All of these early AP twin-clutch installations featured a single dry clutch and a wet clutch assembly. 

A dual-clutch transmission eliminates the torque converter as used in conventional automatic transmissionsInstead, dual-clutch transmissions that are currently on the market primarily use two oiled wet clutches, similar to the clutches used in most motorcycles, though dry-clutch versions are also available.

The first DCT clutch system

The first car with a DCT was the 2003 Volkswagen Golf. In DCTs where the two clutches are arranged, the larger outer clutch drives the even-numbered gears and the smaller inner clutch drives the odd-numbered gears. Shifts can be accomplished without interrupting torque to the wheels, by applying the engine’s torque to one clutch at the same time as it is being disconnected from the other clutch. Dual-clutch transmissions use two fundamentally different types of clutches. The wet clutch design is generally used for higher torque engines that can produce 250 ft lbs of torque or more. The dry-clutch design is generally suitable for smaller vehicles with lower torque outputs up to 184 ft lbs of torque.

Although the first use of a dry single-plate clutch was by Duryea in 1893, it was not until 1921 that a design was developed that would not burn out in a few hundred miles, thanks mainly to Englishman Herbert Frood, who perfected more durable friction material.

What are the pieces of  a Clutch assembly

Basically, the clutch needs three parts. These are the engine flywheel, a friction disc called the clutch plate and a pressure plate.

There are springs which provide axial force to keep the clutch in engaged position. When the engine is running and the flywheel is rotating, the pressure plate also rotates as the pressure plate is attached to the flywheel. The friction disc is located between the two. 

How does a clutch work

When the driver has pushed down the clutch pedal the clutch is released. This action forces the pressure plate to move away from the friction disc against the force of springs. With this movement of pressure plate , the friction plate is released and the clutch is disengaged. When your foot is off the pedal, the springs push the pressure plate against the clutch disc, which in turn presses against the flywheel. This locks the engine to the transmission input shaft, causing them to spin at the same speed. 
The amount of force the clutch can hold depends on the friction between the clutch plate and the flywheel, and how much force the spring puts on the pressure plate. When the clutch pedal is pressed, the piston pushes on the release fork, which presses the throw-out bearing against the middle of the diaphragm spring. As the middle of the diaphragm spring is pushed in, a series of pins near the outside of the spring causes the spring to pull the pressure plate away from the clutch disc This releases the clutch from the spinning engine. With single plate clutch , gear changing is easier than with the cone clutch. Friction-disc clutches generally are classified as push type or pull type depending on the location of the pressure plate fulcrum points. In a pull-type clutch, the action of pressing the pedal pulls the release bearing, pulling on the diaphragm spring and disengaging the vehicle drive. The opposite is true with a push type, the release bearing is pushed into the clutch disengaging the vehicle drive. In this instance, the release bearing can be known as a thrust bearing (as per the image above).
