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.

Thank you so much Linda for the positive feedback! We appreciate your confidence in our services and we will be here for when you need us!
Recently I posted a negative comment about work that I had done at Best Auto. The owner reached out to me to discuss what happened and wanted to hear the details of the issues that had arisen after leaving his shop. Not only did he take the time to listen but he went above and beyond to make the situation right. I can honestly say that what he did was something that few mechanics would have done. I am grateful for all of the assistance that I received and cant not speak highly enough for Best Auto going the extra mile.

Derek, we are sorry you feel we could not meet your expectations and we do not agree with a half star review for services rendered. We provided exceptional service when replacing the engine on the Suburban. The repairs performed was a fair price and based on dealer MSRP list price on the parts and manufacturer labor listed times for labor charges. The repair was authorized and performed based on those standards. The most recent concerns with the Suburban having some oil leaks, we went above and beyond to get those concerns covered under the warranty. This did not cost anything additional to get repaired and we performed those repairs under a reasonable time. We respectfully request a review reconsideration. Best Auto Repair Experience regards, Chris.
The best guys in the business, I will never go anywhere else. These guys will thoroughly take care of you and treat you with the MOST respect. Being a single mother you always have people try to take advantage of you, these guys don't.
