Queens, New York, Clutch Replacement
What Is a Clutch?
The clutch is a key element in your vehicles manual transmission. When the clutch is engaged and the car is in gear, power is carried from the engine to the transmission. Several clutch components undergo continuous friction and will wear over time. Clutch components must be replaced immediately in order to prevent serious transmission issues. At Essential Auto Care, our ASE certified technicians have the knowledge and skills to diagnose and repair any clutch issue.
What Are The Symptoms Of A Bad Clutch ?
The symptoms of a failing clutch could be a slip, shuddering or difficulty depressing the pedal. Changing gears can also become increasingly difficult. Servere issues such as a clutch that does not engage will cause your car not to start. Not all symptoms will be severe however, they should be repaired ASAP by a certified technician. Avoiding any additional wear to the vehicle's transmission will save you a lot of time and money.
When Should The Clutch Be Replaced?
Replacement of clutch and components vary by vehicle and driving conditions. Unfortunately there is no recommended replacement mileage and each car is different. Some clutches will last well over 100,000 miles and others won’t. Driving in heavy traffic areas such as New York City may wear the clutch sooner.
