Your Automotive Repair Shop of Choice!
At Ed's Auto Service of Vineland, we specialize in clutch repairs for a wide range of makes and models. A clutch transmits torque from a rotating driving motor to a transmission. As a clutch is an essential component of a vehicle, it's vital to have it under the assessment of professional mechanics. Both automatic and manual vehicles have clutches, and we can maintain and service both types of vehicles. Whether there is a broken clutch cable, a leak, air in the hydraulic line, or more, look to our professional team to determine the issue. We have the longstanding skills, equipment, and knowledge to repair your clutch promptly.
A clutch is necessary for a vehicle because the engine spins all the time, and the car wheels do not. For a car to stop without shutting the engine down, the wheels need to be disconnected from the engine somehow. The clutch allows us to smoothly engage a spinning engine to a non-spinning transmission by controlling the slippage between them. The technicians at Ed's Auto Service of Vineland ensure that your clutch is working as it should, so you can drive your vehicle safely.
How Does a Clutch Get Worn Out?
If you're unsure about a clutch's longevity in a vehicle, Ed's Auto Service can assist you. The clutch only wears while the clutch disc and the flywheel are spinning at different speeds. When they are locked together, the friction material is held tightly against the flywheel, and they spin in sync. It is only when the clutch disc is slipping against the flywheel that wearing occurs. So if you are the type of driver who slips the clutch a lot, you will wear out the clutch a lot faster. When driving, it's beneficial to be mindful of the clutch, so it lasts longer. Another problem sometimes associated with clutches is a worn throwout bearing. This problem is often characterized by a rumbling noise whenever the clutch engages. If you notice any rumbling noises or abnormal noises, it's important to get it checked out by professionals as soon as possible.
