Peninsula Automotive understands that experiencing clutch system problems is no fun. No manual vehicle’s clutch lasts forever. On average, a clutch’s lifespan is 80,000 to 110,000 miles. Over that period, many things can happen. As you accumulate miles, the facings on the clutch disc can wear, or the clutch’s flywheel and pressure plate can warp, crack or score from the heat and friction that is generated. A working clutch, can easily be ruined if the car’s oil leaks, contaminate the clutch surfaces. The clutch can begin malfunctioning from the hydraulic linkages or clutch cable failing. Finally, the clutch can be prevented from working properly if the release bearing, fork, or pilot bushing/bearing wears out.
Have your clutch checked if you begin experiencing any of these clutch malfunctioning symptoms.
- The clutch grabs when engaged
- The clutch pedal does not have the same normal amount of resistance
- It feels soft when the clutch is depressed
- You are unable to put the transmission in gear
- The clutch slips with excessive engine RPMs
