Understanding the function of clutch

Your clutch connects the engine to the drive wheels which allows you to change gears and control your acceleration. It comprises two metal plates inside the engine, with the flywheel carrying a pressure plate, pressure springs, and release bearings. When you press down on the clutch pedal, the plates come apart, separating the engine from the drive wheels, allowing you to change gears smoothly. Releasing the pedal engages the plates, reconnecting the engine to the drive wheels.

Signs you may need clutch repairs or a new clutch

While a clutch is essential for driving your car, it’s not always easy to know when you need a new clutch or clutch repairs. Symptoms come in different forms, from odd sounds and poor performance to mechanical problems. Depending on the type of vehicle and how it is driven, a clutch can last anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 miles.

Here are some common signs that you may need a new clutch or clutch repairs

There are several signs to look out for that indicate your clutch may require repairs or replacement. These include:

  • Difficulty changing gears or a stiff or unresponsive gearstick
  • Unusual noise when pressing or releasing the clutch pedal
  • Rattling or grinding sound when changing gears
  • Vibrating clutch pedal when you accelerate
  • Loss of acceleration or slipping clutch
  • Random engine revving or uneven acceleration
  • Complete loss of drive

Clutch-related issues like springs, bushes, pressure plates, clutch discs, release bearings and flywheels can all be signs that you require a new clutch or repairs. Additionally, even drivetrain problems or chassis malfunction could signal the need for repairs as well!

If you are faced with any of these problems, get your clutch looked at by a specialist right away. Our expert team here at Eastbourne Garages Eastbourne will assess and identify the issue, then offer professional advice on either repair or replacement.
