Clutch Repair

European Auto Clutch Repair Specialists in Parkersburg

The clutch plays a main role in engaging and disengaging the engine and transmission connection. When switching gears in a manual car, you press the clutch in order to downshift safely without stalling. It’s essential to consistently inspect this part since it’s in a state of constant friction. With the heat and tension caused, your clutch can deteriorate rapidly. Watch out for signs indicating your clutch is damaged – including:

Ask Yourself These Question

  • Difficulty shifting gears (i.e. sticking or stalling)
  • Grinding noises or vibrations when the clutch pedal is pushed
  • Burning odor when shifting
  • Experiencing weak acceleration

Inspect your clutch thoroughly before each use to ensure it’s working properly. Rather than handle it alone, bring your vehicle to us at Cornerstone Auto Service for regular diagnostics and repairs! Stop by today for your complimentary inspection!

Take Preventative Measures

Aside from normal wear and tear, you can stop the rate of damage simply through better driving practices. More often than not, it’s found that clutch replacements occur prematurely due to several damaging habits. When in doubt, avoid:

  • Riding the Clutch
  • Insufficient Hill Starts
  • Incorrect Gear Shifts
  • Driving on a Damaged Clutch
  • Missed Services

When dealing with your clutch, the most important thing is to engage it quickly and smoothly while shifting gears. Remember to always lift the clutch back up to its starting position once you’re moving. When climbing hillsides, engage the handbrake before releasing your clutch and revving your engine. Since the clutch is such a manual component to this mode of transportation, it’s pivotal to take preventative measures.
