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.

Excellent Service. Completed on time and final price matched estimate. Highly recommended.

I'm having a hard time rating them. They were very kind and professional. The waiting rooms are excellent especially for parents. They have a kids waiting room. However, it took an extremely long time to get the van serviced on both trips. 3 hours for each visit. Even with the waiting rooms, kids get restless. Having said all of that, they also have fair pricing, amd they seem very honest. I would probably give them 5 stars if it hadn't been for the very long waiting times on both visits. First visit was an oil change which does include bumper to bumper inspection which is great, and the second was to replace a hose which also took 3 hours. Both visits were scheduled. I'll definitely be back however because finding a good honest mechanic is hard it seems.
