Clutch replacement or at least a clutch repair is inevitable.
Every single time you shift, the clutch has to be disengaged and then re-engaged.
The wear and tear adds up over the years and eventually the clutch will slip, make noise, and wear out. A-Affordable Transmissions Center has proudly serves the Denver metro area and we would like to thank you in advance for your consideration.
Automotive Clutch Replacement 101 – How does your clutch work
The clutch assembly is located between the engine and the gearbox.
Disengaging the clutch is usually required to change gears. Although the gearbox does not stop rotating during a gear change, there is no torque transmitted through it. This allows less friction when shifting gears. The output shaft of the gearbox is permanently connected to the final drive, then the wheels. Both always rotate together. With the clutch disengaged, the gearbox input shaft is free to change its speed as the internal ratio is changed. Any resulting difference in speed between the engine and gearbox is evened out as the clutch slips slightly during re-engagement.
The clutch disc is in between the pressure plate and the flywheel.
The clutch disc is held against the flywheel under pressure from the pressure plate.
When the engine is running and the clutch is engaged (i.e., clutch pedal up), the flywheel spins the clutch plate and hence the transmission. As the clutch pedal is depressed, the throw out bearing is activated. This causes the pressure plate to stop applying pressure to the clutch disc. This makes the clutch plate stop receiving power from the engine. Now gears can be shifted without damaging the transmission. When the clutch pedal is released, the throw out bearing is deactivated. The clutch disc is again held against the flywheel, allowing it to start receiving power from the engine.
Diagnose a slipping automotive clutch
A slipping clutch reduces the amount of power delivered to the drive wheels.
If you experience changes in engine speed without noticeable acceleration, your clutch could be slipping. If your engine revs and the car hesitates before accelerating, it can mean your clutch isn’t delivering horse power and torque through the transmission to the drive wheels. Keep notice of the clutch pedal height where you feel the clutch begin to engage. The higher the engagement of the clutch, the more the clutch is worn and may mean a clutch replacement is soon. Notice if you smell something burning, a clutch that slips has a unique smell. The smell is the same as when your brakes burn. If you have smelled something when coming home from the mountains, odds are that was your brakes. Clutch and brake material are the same materials. We are a Team Dave Logan clutch replacement expert.
