The Basics Behind Clutch Adjustment and Inspection Services at Michigan Auto and Tire

For manual transmission, the clutch is responsible for activating and disengaging the engine transmission. A manual transmission clutch allows the engine to continue to turn, even if the vehicle is stopped. In an automatic transmission, the torque converter and the transmission fluid control this operation. Two shafts are powered by the clutch, one in the transmission and the other in the engine, and friction is used to hold the transmission attached. The pressure plate pushes against a flywheel when the clutch is engaged, and joins the transmission to the engine. The pressure plate pulls away from the flywheel, separating the transmission from the engine, when the clutch is disengaged. The clutch helps to turn gears. Some transmissions use hydraulic clutches and others use clutches for cables. In both cases regular clutch maintenance is needed to ensure efficient operation of all moving components. If you are worried about your clutch’s functionality please contact us about a service.

Why Should You Have Clutch Adjustment and Inspection Services Performed at Michigan Auto and Tire ?

A clutch that falls or stays are both indicators you should have your clutch checked. If your clutch slips, it could have worn away the friction material on the clutch disk which will loosen the connection between the disk and the flywheel. The clutch does not release the entire way when a clutch holds, which keeps the engine in limited contact with the transmission. This can cause noise from grinding and an inability to turn between gears. So much free play and an unnecessarily rigid clutch are indicators of imminent examination or modification of the clutches.
