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 called this morning and spoke to Danny about a screw in my tire, and a brake light that was out, he said to come on in they would take care of it. Sure enough, they got right to work and corrected my problems and I was ready for the road. Great work and very professional. If you are not a current customer, give them a try for your all your vehicle needs. You will not be disappointed. Great little shop.

I own my own repair shop but happened to be in Cartersville on another matter. Figured I’d drop in and give them a try. Very professional, comfortable waiting room, and quality service. I really enjoyed the digital video inspection of my vehicle sent to me via text message while I was sitting in the waiting room. Very cool! I enjoyed visiting with the people there. Danny is very knowledgeable! All in all, a very positive experience, one of the best I’ve ever had as a customer.

I was so impressed by their professionalism and their honesty. They checked my car out from bumper to bumper and told me the most important things I needed to have fixed. They didn't try to push unnecessary and costly repairs on me. They were completely honest as to what was causing the problem I had taken the car there for, which ended up being loosened clamps on hoses causing coolant to leak. I was so impressed. To top it off,when I picked up the car, there was a card and small box of Valentine's Day candy on the seat! Thank you to everyone there!
