What is a clutch ?
A clutch is the component responsible for connecting your engine to your transmission and the wheels of the car. When you depress the clutch pedal in your car, you temporally disconnect the transmission from your engine, this in turn allows your transmission shafts to slow down and stop rotating within your gearbox allowing you change up or down gear.
How long should a clutch last?
A clutch will normally last between 10'000 and 50'000 miles dependant on how smooth your clutch changes are when pressing and releasing the clutch pedal.
What are the symptoms of a worn or wearing clutch?
There are a variety of symptoms that can occur, the most common symptoms include :
- Your car not moving forward as quickly as it normally should.
- Struggling to get upto speed (especially on hills).
- A jerky motion coming through the car when trying to accelerate away.
- Unusual noises coming through the car when you press the clutch pedal to the floor.
