Recognizing a Slipping Clutch

Take your vehicle to a reputable clutch specialist for maintenance, repairs and replacements. A slipping clutch can be an incredibly expensive issue for any car owner. Prevention maintenance and early intervention can save you a lot of money. How long a clutch lasts depends very much on the individual's driving habits. Recognizing clutch trouble can extend the life of the clutch and prolong the life of the car's transmission system.

The clutch mechanism appears on both automatic and manual transmissions and allows power to move from the engine to the wheels and transmission of the car. The correct amount and use of friction determines the overall effectiveness of the car's clutch.

Signs that your clutch is in need of replacement or repair

A soft clutch is a slipping clutch. If there is a delay between the wheels engaging and removing you foot from the clutch, chances are the clutch is slipping. Be aware of how your clutch feels all the time. When the sensation of an engaged clutch begins to change you'll have a heads up on potential problems. In fact, a soft clutch pedal that gives no pressure back to your foot is a good sign of a hydraulic leak, which requires immediate attention as it means your clutch could go out any time.

Clutch damage means driving issues. Try changing gears while driving and asses how long it takes the car to change from one to another. Any delay could indicate the need to head over to a reputable mechanic for further inspection. Remember to try this experiment when test driving a previously owned vehicle you are considering purchasing.

That burning smell could be the clutch. If you experience the smell of burning rubber or an electrical burning smell while driving, it could be your clutch.

Instability under the hood. If the clutch is slipping in and out of gear for no apparent reason, it could mean major clutch damage or wear. Another warning sign is when gears slip due to the gear shift being bumped slightly when the clutch is not engaged.

Pushing and no response? If your clutch has become hard to engage, pushing down on the pedal is difficult or there is a general sensation of stiffness, there's a good chance you have a bad pressure plate which is related to overall clutch health.

Prevent clutch damage

All car parts wear out eventually but driving habits can make a major difference to your bottom line. Here are a few simple ways you can reduce clutch damage and prolong clutch life.

Stop riding that clutch. While idling in traffic, people have a tendency to letting the clutch which engages it and you creep a few inches forward. This is referred to as ‘riding the clutch’ and greatly increases the rate of wear on the clutch. Having your foot resting on the clutch when not engaging it is also referred to as riding the clutch.

Choose the right gear. Putting your car in the wrong gear when driving plays havoc on your clutch. The higher the speeds when you change to the incorrect gear the more wear results to the clutch.

Choose the right mechanic. Often, a clutch's problems happen before you even drive. Cracked or worn clutch discs put you at a disadvantage from the start. Make sure the clutch you receive is approved by the manufacturer and has a warranty.

Service your car regularly. Don't wait for there to be a problem with your clutch or any part of your car. Scheduled maintenance and inspections help prolong car life. All clutches need to be replaced at some time but if you catch clutch issues early you can minimize the number of times you have to pay out that expense on one vehicle.

Take your vehicle to a reputable clutch specialist for maintenance, repairs and replacements.
