Your Manual Transmission Professionals — Greenville Transmission Clinic

When you’re driving a manual, the clutch is one of the most used parts of your car. Over time, this part wears down and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Since our founding in 1979, we’ve helped thousands of local drivers in Greenville, South Carolina, and the surrounding areas of Greer, Taylors, Spartanburg, and Easley.

Signs Your Clutch Is Going Bad

The last thing you want is to end up stuck on the road because your clutch failed. Because this part is frequently used, it will eventually need to be repaired or replaced, but if you pay attention, you’ll be able to catch problems early on. In many cases, you’ll notice something’s off when you try to engage it. If the clutch is soft or squishy, or if it sticks to the floor, you should have it brought in as soon as possible. You may also experience hard shifting, trouble changing gears, or feel the car slip when you’re shifting. A burning smell or grinding sounds are potential signs as well. Any of these problems are cause for concern, so if you experience them, let our experts take a look. We back our clutch repairs with a 1-year/12,000-mile warranty, so you can rest assured your car is in excellent care.

How to Prevent Clutch Wear

Depending on how it’s used, a clutch can last for as little as 20,000 miles or for as much as 100,000 miles. If you use your clutch efficiently, you can extend its life for a considerable amount of time. This means only using it as much as necessary. For example, you should avoid riding the clutch (i.e. keeping it partially engaged) as much as possible. You should also use your brakes to naturally slow your car as opposed to using the gearbox. Most importantly, you should never tow anything that exceeds your vehicle’s weight limit. All of these practices reduce clutch use and put much less stress on your transmission, which allows you to get more use out of it. Eventually, though, your clutch will wear out and will need to be replaced.
