Manual Clutch Service and Repair

For all the technological advances and great strides that have been made in the automotive industry, there are still some old-school manual transmission enthusiasts who believe that nothing beats the exhilaration of driving a car with a stick shift. If you are in that camp, you’re in luck- Quality Transmission & Clutch offers stellar maintenance and repair on virtually all models of manual transmissions and clutches. You don’t want to trust your car with just any service center- why not go to the pros and enjoy the peace of mind that your manual clutch will be fixed right the first time, by dedicated, skilled technicians who know how?

 

The clutch is perhaps the most vital component of any manual transmission. It is the part that transmits engine power to the gearbox of your car, allowing the transmission to pause when shifting gears as the car is in motion. Friction clutches are used in most cars with a manual transmission. This clutch is operated by either a cable or by fluid (also known as a hydraulic clutch), and runs on an input shaft, which transmits the power from the engine to the gearbox. When the clutch is engaged, the friction linings on both sides of the friction plate of the clutch clamps down on the shaft, allowing for a smooth ride. When the clutch is disengaged by pushing down on the pedal, a release bearing is pushed against the middle of a diaphragm spring, releasing the clamping pressure and allowing for a gear change. Without an operational clutch, shifting becomes difficult or, in some cases, impossible. Needless to say, this greatly impacts the driveability of your manual transmission vehicle.

 

If you are uncertain whether your manual clutch needs to be repaired or replaced, be sure to look out for some of these telltale warning signs:

  • Change in engine speed without noticeable acceleration
  • Change in clutch pedal height (in other words, how far the driver has to push down on the pedal to engage the clutch)
  • Change in amount of engine power, especially when pulling a load
  • A burning smell coming from under the hood

 

If you experience any of these red flags, you may be dealing with a slipping clutch and should bring it to a service center right away to avoid needing a total clutch replacement. Your friendly team of professionals at Quality Transmission & Clutch can quickly assess the situation, provide an accurate diagnosis and honest estimate, and have you back on the road in as little time as possible.
