HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOU NEED TO REPLACE CLUTCH?
- Your Clutch Feels Spongy. A soft or “spongy” clutch is an early sign that your clutch is failing. Drive your car around the block and pay close attention to the feel of your clutch and how far you let the clutch out before the gear catches. If you have to let your clutch out most of the way, that is also a sign of a worn clutch.
- Your Clutch Causes a Burning Smell. When your clutch is failing, it is commonly accompanied by a burning smell. The smell comes from the friction of your slipping clutch.
- You Have Trouble Shifting. If you notice that when you shift, your car does not engage smoothly and shakes, this is a good sign that you’ve got a bad clutch. Shifting problems are most apparent in first gear and reverse.
- You Have Visible Damage to Your Clutch. If you’re mechanically savvy, you can remove the inspection cover at the bottom of the bell housing to see your clutch. If your clutch is going bad, you’ll notice obvious visible damage. If you notice a fine black dust around your clutch, this is normal wear – look for damage to the actual clutch itself.
