Clutch Replacement Denver

All wheel, front and rear wheel drive. 4×4 clutch replacement pros. Something we typically recommend to drivers is less gas and more clutch. Simply put, less engine rpm and a slower clutch pedal release will result in more aggressive application of the clutch disc and related assembly. A more aggressive application will lead to less disc slippage and your new clutch will last longer.¬† Try not to give the car any gas until the vehicle starts to move.

Diagnose a slipping automotive clutch

A slipping clutch reduces the amount of power delivered to the drive wheels. Any changes in engine speed without noticeable acceleration means the clutch could be slipping. The clutch may not be delivering horse power and torque through the transmission to the drive wheels if your engine revs and the car hesitates before accelerating. 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 similar to brakes burning.


“Devin was incredibly helpful and got my truck in immediately. I likely had some transmission issues as a result of previous work done. He diagnosed the problem, and even bled the clutch for free even though I tried to leave some cash. I would take my vehicle in for any minor or major work in the future.”

“Great customer service all around thanks for getting me back on the road.”

Arthur Hitchcock

“My daughter needs hand controls to drive, and we had to drive from Denver to Colorado Springs with her car so she could train. One day on the way down the Trans started acting up. I’m good with a wrench, but some things just can’t happen in a garage. These guys SAVED OUR BUTT!!! They did the job in record time and for the best price I could have ever hoped for (there is only pain moneywise in a new transmission)! Don’t screw around just call these guys and get your repair done right!!!”

Kevin O'Grady

“I needed my clutch replaced ASAP and this place lived up to all the reviews. I got my vehicle in the same day I called and had my XTerra back in less than 2 days. Great customer service is hard to find these days, but that is what you will get here. They updated me with the status several times, explained all the work that was being done, and were friendly and respectful. They also went above and beyond repairing something that I didn’t even ask about at no cost (small clutch fix on an xterra part that often breaks). I will definitely recommend and return to A-Affordable Transmission again. Thank you!”

Chris Yenter

“Very good service. I will definitely recommend A-affordable transmissions. Devin made my horrible car situation less painful with a great, honest and happy attitude.
Thank you,

Rocci Ledoux

“Devin was very trustworthy and got my Tahoe fixed & back to normal (even better than) for a fraction of what the dealership wanted to charge me for my repairs!”

Automotive Clutch 101 – How does your clutch work

The clutch disk is in between the pressure plate and the flywheel. A clutch disk is held against the flywheel under pressure from the pressure plate. Because the engine is running and the clutch is engaged (i.e., clutch pedal up), the flywheel spins the clutch plate and the transmission. When the clutch pedal is depressed, the throw out bearing is activated. This causes the pressure plate to stop applying pressure to the clutch disk. Because of this the clutch plate stop receiving power from the engine. So now gears can be shifted without damaging the transmission. When the clutch pedal is released, the throw out bearing is deactivated. The clutch disk is again held against the flywheel, allowing it to start receiving power from the engine.
