How Double Clutching Works

What is double clutching? Why should you double clutch? How do you double clutch? These are just a few of the questions drivers have about a common manual transmission technique that goes back decades. Although double clutching is not necessary in most new manual transmissions (or any transmission, for that matter, that has a synchronizer) it’s common in commercial trucks and specialty vehicles. Double clutching aids in matching the engine speed to the rotational speed of the desired gear to prevent transmission wear and damage.

Watch this video to learn more about the ins and outs of double clutching, including why it’s important to double clutch if you drive a vehicle with an unsynchronized manual transmission and how to successfully perform this technique. If you experience any transmission problems while practicing this maneuver, or just in your everyday driving, visit a clutch repair shop in San Jose for an inspection and any necessary repairs.
