The Symptoms of Clutch Failure
Fortunately for you, it isn’t difficult to tell when it is time to invest in a new clutch. Clutch failure is usually readily apparent and easy to pinpoint, making it easier for drivers to act quickly. If you have noticed any of the following signs of clutch failure, bring your vehicle into our shop. We can help identify the issue definitively and move forward from there. The signs of clutch failure include:
If you drive a manual transmission, you are likely very familiar with the feeling of your clutch pedal. It should be firm, not soft. If you start to notice a softer-than-usual pedal, then you might have a problem with your clutch fluid.
Of course, any problems changing gears is worrisome. But you should pay attention to how easily you switch into reverse because it takes a tremendous amount of force for your vehicle to do so.
A well-running clutch should disengage when you press it and allow you to change gears, then re-engage once you have done so. Slipping clutches occur as the components in the mechanism begin to wear down over time.
Grinding noises should never happen when you press down on your clutch pedal. If you hear noises like this, then it is a surefire sign that your clutch is worn down. However, grinding noises can indicate many other issues, so it is best to bring it to us.
When your clutch wears out, you may begin to notice some burning odors. There is a higher risk of this issue when you drive in rush hour traffic because of the frequency at which you are shifting gears.
