When to Consider Clutch Replacement

A clutch is a third pedal that lets you operate a manual transmission in San Jose. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to switch gears or even get your car started. Since it’s so important for your transmission, you need to know when it’s time for a replacement. Needing to repair your clutch on a regular basis is time-consuming and expensive, and it could mean that you’re due for an entirely new one. Keep track of how long you’ve had your clutch, because it won’t last forever. Visit the transmission shop to see if you might need a new clutch if you hear strange noises coming from the car. clutch - parts

Too Many Repairs

There is only so much money you should spend on repairing your clutch and transmission before you start thinking about a replacement. If you keep spending money to repair your clutch and it keeps breaking, you’re wasting money that you could have put towards a brand-new clutch. Transmission repairs aren’t necessarily cheap, so it pays to be smart about your clutch. Next time you head to the transmission shop for a repair, ask your mechanic if it might be better to replace your clutch instead.

Old, Worn-Out Clutch

No clutch will last forever, and the way you drive your car has a lot to do with how long it will work for. If you’re the type of driver who rides the clutch instead of shifting seamlessly, you might need a new clutch after about 25,000 miles. On the other hand, you can make your clutch last for more than 100,000 miles if you’re an expert at shifting smoothly. Proper maintenance will also stretch out the lifespan of your clutch, so see your transmission specialist on a regular basis.

Unexpected Sounds

When a clutch fails to engage and disengage properly, it often creates a grinding sound that you might even be able to feel from the inside of your vehicle. This might call for a simple repair, or it might be an opportunity for you to upgrade your clutch with a replacement.
