Common Clutch Problems
There are many reasons why your car’s clutch may not be working properly. The most common reason being when a clutch disc slips out of place against the flywheel which is caused by the wearing of the friction material on the disc. Eventually, the clutch will not transmit any power to the wheels from the engine. Another common problem is when the clutch “sticks”. This can prevent your car from going into gear completely. Reasons why a car clutch may stick include:
Broken clutch cable
Leaky master clutch cylinders
Mismatched clutch components
Air in the hydraulic line
All the problems mentioned above, along with many others, can be diagnosed by our technicians once a clutch diagnostic test is completed.
Clutch Diagnostic Test
Before an issue with the clutch is diagnosed, you will begin to notice symptoms of a damaged clutch when driving your vehicle.
Some common symptoms of a clutch that needs repair or replacement include:
- Jolting when changing gear, known as “drag”. Often the cause of this is the clutch adjustments being incorrect.
- Abnormal low frequency vibrations or “juddering” can indicate a glazed flywheel or uneven clutch arm.
- Having trouble driving up hill and a burning smell coming from the vehicle often means the clutch facings are worn.
- The vehicle moving suddenly as you gradually release the pedal usually suggests an uneven operation of the clutch arm.
If you notice any of the symptoms mentioned above, bring your vehicle down to a local Service4Service garage where a clutch diagnostic test will completed by one of our technicians to find the cause.
