Clutch Service and Repair
For most vehicle owners, they believe the purpose of the clutch is just to put the vehicle in neutral gear. However, there is more to it, as the clutch disengages the transmission from the drivetrain. That is why it is key to keep up-to-date on clutch repair and services, which is where the skilled technicians at Oxford Automotive in Westerville, Delaware and Powell, Ohio, can come into play.
How Does The Clutch Work
Every car has a clutch and every vehicle owner should know that it is one of the most important car parts. The clutch allows you to speed up or slow down by disconnecting the engine from the wheels without switching it off. This is important, as the engine constantly spins, but the wheels don’t.
The engine is designed to be constantly spinning. If the engine is not spinning, it would stop running and shut down. This motion is transferred to the drive shaft by the transmission and, in turn, to the wheels.
Because you don’t want your transmission or your wheels to be constantly spinning, this is where the clutch comes into play. The main purpose of the clutch is to disengage the transmission from the motor in order for you to shift gears without grinding.
Clutch Service & Clutch Replacement
Like most car parts, the clutch will wear out over time. However, the clutch service and clutch replacement is not difficult in comparison to the more complicated transmission repair. In some cases, you will have to replace the entire clutch, as the clutch disc has been worn out completely. For the clutch, these are some common problems for vehicles brought into our three Ohio shops:
- Leak in the hydraulics
- Air bubbles formed in the hydraulic line
- Stretched cable controls
