Clutch Repairs Gold Coast
Manual transmissions are a great way to drive and loved by many, most people who choose to drive a vehicle with a manual transmission have been known to feel a lot more control of their car. However, if you have chosen to go down the manual route for your vehicle you do have more responsibility to look after and maintain your clutch. While a standard gearbox is generally quick, easy and cheaper to fix, your clutch will require additional attention and the expertise of a skilled and qualified professional mechanic to ensure its functionality and maintain its efficiency. Although your clutch has many essential elements which are important to optimal operation, the most common issue that may require maintenance or repair is caused by the friction disc. Simply, the friction disc transfers necessary power from your engine to the gearbox and if not functioning optimally, it can have a massive impact on your vehicle’s overall drivability. Through regular maintenance, care and services most manual drivers are able to avoid any major clutch issues, however there are times when repairs and/or replacement are inevitable.
Some of the key warning signs that you need to have your clutch inspected as soon as possible by an experienced and trusted mechanic are as follows:
- Slipping Gears – when find that your vehicle is slipping out of gear or provides an unstable shift this may be an indication that your clutch is wearing out and requires immediate attention from an expert
- Smoke or a Burning Smell – the presentation of smoke or a burning smell around your vehicle can be evidence that your clutch may be overheated or the clutch plate is wearing out
- Sticking Clutch – if you find resistance and difficulty when engaging the pedals, this may be as a result of a leak which causes a build up of pressure and in turn a ‘sticking’ of the pedals
If you are experiencing one of more of what was listed above, it is imperative to seek out the assistance of a qualified and skilled technician to ensure the safety of both yourself and your vehicle.
