What are clutches?
All cars with a manual transmission will have a friction clutch between the engine and gearbox, allowing the driver to drive forwards and backwards. Good quality Clutches are hard wearing, but do need periodic replacement as the clutch wears down.
So how does a car or van clutch work?
A clutch is made up of two metal plates in the engine, when you press the clutch pedal down, you are separating these plates apart, allowing you to change the gear, clever stuff right? When the clutch pedal comes back up it links back up with the engine and connects to the engine to the drive wheels, even more clever!
How to know if a Car Needs a New Clutch
Clutch slipping, so what does this actually mean? A clutch slipping normally describes an issue where you will accelerate and your engine speed will greatly increase without the car moving any faster, similar to if you were to accelerate if you had the clutch firmly pressed to the floor and accelerate. This is the clutch slipping, and eventually the more you drive the more the clutch will wear and no acceleration will move the car as the clutch will be slipping.
