Clutch Repair Service – University Place, Tacoma WA

What is a clutch?

A clutch is part of a manual transmission system that helps you shift gears. The clutch acts like the middleman between the engine and the wheels, allowing the driver to control the connection with the clutch pedal and manage the engine’s power by engaging or disengaging the clutch friction disc as needed. This lets you change gears safely and smoothly control your acceleration from a stop.

How do I know if my clutch is having trouble?

A clutch that is failing can present many different types of symptoms. Some of which include:

  • Difficulty pressing the clutch pedal or shifting gears
  • Slipping clutch, hesitation, or vehicle shudder when accelerating
  • Grinding noises and strange smells
  • Difficulty maintaining momentum
  • The engine will rev but the vehicle will not move

Benefits of a Working Clutch

Prioritizing clutch maintenance and repairs helps customers safeguard their vehicles, finances, and well-being on the road.

Performance and Safety Benefits

Vehicle Responsiveness

Drivers can quickly respond to whatever expected or unexpected conditions you meet while on the road.

Healthy Driving Habits

Responding to a properly functioning vehicle helps you maintain safe reaction-times that protect you. Establishing and keeping good driving habits ensures a long life for your new clutch.

Driver and Passenger Safety

A reliable clutch helps you maintain control and stability on the road, reducing the risk of accidents or collisions while driving.

Peace of Mind

Be stress-free when taking a trip. Having a car that you know is 100% lets you leave your worries behind.

Financial Benefits

Avoid Costly Transmission Damage

Ignoring a failing clutch can cause more severe damage to your transmission. Transmission rebuilds or replacements can take more time and money than a clutch repair, leaving your family without the vehicle for longer.

Fuel Efficiency

Ensure that when you ask your engine to move you forward, you aren’t wasting fuel with higher RPM demands that provide a lower momentum output, putting unnecessary strain on your engine.

Save Your Tires

A properly functioning clutch will protect your driveline and tires from the wear and tear of compensating for a failing friction disc.

No Expensive Towing Costs

Getting stuck on the side of the road is very inconvenient. Getting towed to a shop can be quite expensive. Make the decision to have your vehicle serviced when it works for your schedule, not when luck makes the decision for you.
