by Radhika Pawar creative content writer

For some gearheads, the manual and automatic gearbox debate is no longer a concern. This is because a good number of them are into the manual transmission vehicle. And there is nothing wrong with that considering manual transmission vehicles tend to be fun to drive as there is an understanding between the driver and the car created by shifting gears.

 

Nevertheless, you will have to replace your car’s clutch after every 40, 000km to 100, 000 km or more. Of course this depends on a number of factors. In this short guide, will share some of the things you probably you didn’t know about your car clutch.

 

Common Manual Clutch Problems

The clutch is undeniably one of the most hard-working components in a manual transmission vehicle. After all, it engages and disengages with each gear change, not forgetting every start and every stop. This eventually creates a significant amount of friction and heat. In the long run, the friction created in the clutch disc, pressure plate, and flywheel take a toll on the clutch components.

 

Premature clutch wear also emanates from the increased load. This includes heavy loads in your vehicle or towing a heavy trailer. In the event that you decide to modify the engine to boost power, rest assured it will also increase the demand on the clutch.

 

Clutch Replacement in the Right Way

If you notice any signs of overheating and burning on the original car clutch, this is a clear indication that it needs to be replaced. At times, the clutch slips come from oil contamination. In such a scenario, you should not rush to have the clutch disc replaced. Instead, you are better off identifying and repairing the source of the oil leak first.

 

Remember, clutch replacement is labor-intensive and that’s why you should count on an experienced auto mechanic shop. The good thing about replacing everything at once is that it takes care of the problem. That way, you won’t find yourself complaining about the same problem over and over again.

 

Final Thoughts

There will come a time when you have to replace your car clutch. When this happens, be sure to visit a reputable local auto shop you trust. With such a shop, you can rest knowing they will fix everything within the shortest time possible. It is then that you can hit the road again.
