Signs Your Vehicle Needs a Clutch Repair
There are four common signs that your vehicle may need a clutch repair. If you’ve noticed any of the following signs when using your clutch, contact the team at Mr. Transmission Milex Fayetteville for a free clutch repair performance check:
- Burning Odor. A burning smell is never a good sign when you’re driving. While a burning odor could be caused by a number of issues, one of the most common causes is an over-ridden clutch. This will mean that your clutch has worn too thin and will need to be replaced.
- Sticky Clutch Pedal. A sticky clutch pedal can point to a deeper issue with your transmission, but more often than not it can be fixed with professional clutch repair. You might find that your clutch is sticking in the upright position, making it difficult to press, or you might find that it constantly becomes stuck near the floor of your vehicle, making it difficult for your cars’ gears to catch.
- Vibrations & Strange Noises. As with burning odors, vibrations or odd noises can be caused by a number of issues. Clutch problems are a common reason for these issues, particularly if the engine mount or transmission mount is damaged.
- Slipping Gears. Slipping gears are often caused by a worn out clutch, but can also be caused by other kinds of damage to your vehicle’s transmission. Whatever the cause, slipping gears are a sure sign that your vehicle will need a repair.
