Information about your clutch replacement and common faults

Clutches and Brakes are the amongst the most commonly replaced car parts, but the basic principles of  the clutch operations have stayed the same for many years, but only 2 things have dramatically changed. These are the Dual Mass Flywheels and the Concentric Slave Cylinders.

What a Clutch Does:

A clutch initiates motion or increased the velocity of a mass generally by transferring kinetic energy from another moving item and disengaging the drive so you can change gear.

Common Clutch Faults

Clutch Drag: This is where the clutch plate is not at a correct adjustment or the centre plate is sticking on the splines and the difficulties you would have with this problem is obtaining gears particularly first and reverse gears.

Clutch Judder: This is caused by a warped friction plate or the gearbox or engine mounts could be broken, with this you get a shudder and a vibration when the vehicle starts to move.

Clutch Slip: This is caused by the oil on the friction plate or worn friction plate, although the symptoms of the clutch slip would be partial or you would have total loss of drive; also your vehicle speed would be lower than normal compared with the engine speed.
