The clutch is one of the most important parts of your vehicle as it transfers power from the engine to the wheels and allows you to be in control of your vehicle. Clutches are durable and don’t break easily, however, it can wear down over time. This is due to several different things including age and driving in bad conditions.
Our team of highly qualified mechanics will be more than happy to run a free vehicle health check for you. During this check, we can look at your clutch and make sure it’s in tip-top shape. If we spot anything unusual we’ll be sure to let you know. We’ll never take on any additional work without telling you first. At our garage, you can get a competitive quote to fix your vehicle that won’t break your bank balance.
Being aware of when to get your clutch replaced can be hard to figure out but there are some simple checks you can do to find out. If you sit in your vehicle and push the clutch pedal and it takes very little pressure to move, your clutch could be worn. We suggest going for a short drive where you can accelerate in 3rd or 4th gear. If the engine note rises but the vehicle does get faster, you should get your clutch looked at as soon as possible. Another thing you can do is start your vehicle and gradually go into 3rd gear whilst applying the clutch – you should then gradually release your foot off the clutch. If the vehicle stalls it means your clutch is in good condition but if your vehicle starts to drive without stalling, your clutch could be slipping. If you spot any of these problems, feel free to bring your vehicle into our garage and we’ll check it over for you.
