Clutches

A lot of people presume that the clutch is actually the pedal that is positioned to the left of the brake in your vehicle. That is not entirely false, but there's more to it than just that.

How a Clutch Works

The majority of people assume that the purpose of the clutch is just to put the car in neutral gear. However, there's more to that, because it disengages the transmission from the drivetrain.

While the engine is on, it is designed to be constantly spinning. If the engine is not spinning, it would stop running and would shut down in the end. The motion is transferred to the drive shaft by the transmission and, in turn, to the wheels. However, you certainly don't want your transmission or your wheels to be spinning all the time. The main purpose of the clutch is to disengage the transmission from the motor in order for you to shift gears without grinding.

Clutch Service & Clutch Replacement

Over time, the clutch wears out, but its repair is not a difficult maintenance work in comparison to the more expensive and complicated transmission repair. In some cases, you have to replace the entire clutch, because the clutch disc has been worn out completely. Other common problems include a leak in the hydraulics, air bubbles formed in the hydraulic line and stretched cable controls.

Is Your Clutch Acting Up?

If you suspect that there's something wrong with you clutch, the best thing to do is to bring your vehicle to our auto repair shop, where your certified technicians will run a diagnostic test in order to pinpoint the exact cause for concern.

I was traveling from Illinois to rincon GA. I pulled over to get gas. My car wouldn’t steer and leaked coolant. It was in the middle of the night I had no idea what town I was in until an hour later when some guy checked to see if I was ok. Later that next morning I called 5 different places and this shop was the only one who answered! I cried and explained to Pam what happened and that I had no idea where I was. She was so nice on the phone and she asked if I was safe. I informed her I had my dog with me. She sent the tow truck right away! He was real nice and sweet and didn’t mind my dog going. He took me and my dog to this shop. Pam was at the desk and told me about their price to look at it and what not. She let my dog come in the waiting room with me. She made sure me and my dog had something to drink. The man who worked on my car came and told me what had happened and what was wrong with it. He Ordered the parts and he put me as a priority. A few hours later he told me my car was done so I could drive the 4 hours back home. This place is WONDERFUL!!!! I hope I never break down again but if I do I hope it’s in Cartersville so I can come back to this place! They were so sweet and caring. I wasn’t just another dollar sign to them. Thank you guys for helping me!!!!!
