Clutch Kits

 

What is a clutch kit?

A clutch “kit” includes a new or remanufactured clutch disc, pressure plate and (in most cases) a release bearing.  A kit is the best way to go because all parts are sourced from the same supplier and are matched so the installed height will be correct to ensure proper fit for your vehicle.  Mismatched parts can sometimes cause problems engaging and releasing your clutch.

 

What does a clutch do?

The clutch allows you to engage the power from your engine to your transmission and, ultimately your wheels and tires. A clutch allows you to drive your vehicle, change gears, and to stop your vehicle while the engine is still running.

How do I know if I need a new clutch?

Below are some signs that your clutch is going out:

  • Loss of acceleration caused by the clutch slipping.
  • Squeaking, grinding or grumbling noise when you apply pressure to the pedal.
  • Difficulty changing gears, including grinding as you shift.
  • Vibrating or sticking clutch pedal.
  • Spongey or loose clutch pedal.
  • Poor acceleration but your engine is still revving.

 

How long will a clutch last?

Although clutches are designed to last between 50,000 and 100,000 miles, a variety of factors can cause a clutch to slip and need replacement. If you drive it like you stole it, with harsh acceleration, stop-start driving, and dropping the clutch to donate rubber to the road, you will likely wear down the clutch prematurely. Vehicle type, age and daily driving conditions can affect how often the clutch needs replacing. Vehicle maintenance can also be a factor in how often your clutch needs to be replaced.
