Many people mistakenly believe that the clutch’s sole function is to put the car in neutral gear. However, it also plays a crucial role in disengaging the transmission from the drivetrain.

Understanding the Clutch Mechanism
A common misconception is that the clutch is only used to place the car in neutral gear. However, it also plays a pivotal role in disengaging the transmission from the drivetrain.

While the engine is operational, it is engineered to be in constant rotation. If the engine ceases to spin, it will stop functioning and shut down. The transmission transfers this motion to the drive shaft, and subsequently, to the wheels. However, it is undesirable for your transmission or wheels to be in constant rotation. The primary function of the clutch is to disconnect the transmission from the engine, enabling gear shifting without grinding.

Clutch Repair & Replacement Services
Over time, the clutch deteriorates, although its repair is relatively straightforward compared to the more intricate transmission repair. Occasionally, it is necessary to replace the entire clutch as the clutch disc has been entirely worn down. Other frequent issues include hydraulic leaks, air bubbles in the hydraulic line, and stretched cable controls.

If you suspect an issue with your clutch, it is advisable to bring your vehicle to our auto repair shop. Here, our certified technicians will conduct a diagnostic test to accurately identify the underlying issue.

Needed roadside service via AAA which was sourced through your business. Your employee Patrick was outstanding. He fixed the problem well enough that I was able to drive the vehicle to the dealership avoiding a tow. Again, Patrick was terrific. He was professional, courteous, and extremely helpful. He is an asset to your business. If Patrick is an example of your staff in general, I would highly recommend your business as a place to go for both auto and truck repair.

I needed to get wheel bearings fixed on my vehicle. They fixed my car in the time they said they would and the price was the same as what they quoted. It’s running smooth again. They are nice to me every time I go there. I’ve caught dealerships in so many lies but these guys are true to what they tell me and they do what they say they will do. I won’t go anywhere else! Highly recommend.
