If you drive a manual transmission vehicle, you’ll want to know what signs to look out for to stay on top of repairs. As an essential part of your daily driving experience, the clutch can wear out fast. New drivers may not notice degradation as easily, so here are a few key signs to watch out for.
Auto technicians use the term “sticking” to describe a clutch that is difficult to press down or gets stuck near the floor. If this happens to you, your vehicle may have a failed hydraulic link causing leaks and a loss of pressure. One of our technicians can take a closer look and tell you for sure.
When we ask if you’ve noticed “gear slipping,” we want to know how smooth it is to shift your vehicle. Slipping out of gear, lurching, and jerking with no clear cause are signs of a worn down clutch. We see a replacement in your future, but let’s be sure that leaks aren’t contributing to strange behavior.
Remember when you first learned to drive a manual vehicle? You might recall the strong burning smell that came when you started accelerating. When you’ve improved your skills as a driver but still notice that smell, that means there’s a bigger problem. Your clutch might be worn out!
