If you drive a vehicle with manual transmission, it’s crucial to keep the clutch in good working order. Whether your car needs a clutch repair or total replacement, Ruffner Transmission in San Diego offers a full spectrum of transmission services for domestic and foreign vehicles.

Clutch repair

The clutch serves as the key connector between the transmission and engine, so it’s important to keep it in good working order. It’s important to bring your car in for service at the first sign of any clutch issues. Some common symptoms that indicate you need a clutch repair include:

  • Unusual noises when shifting

  • Significant change in the amount of force required to engage the clutch 

  • Clutch pedal sticks to the floor

  • Frequent gear slippage 

Clutch replacement

Some clutch issues require only a repair to get them back in good working order. Other issues may be severe enough to require a full clutch replacement. A damaged clutch can result in costly damage to other components of your transmission. Be sure to visit our full-service transmission repair shop right away if you notice any of the following symptoms of a damaged clutch:

  • Extreme shaking or grinding when you shift gears, especially when shifting into first gear or reverse

  • Lurching or jerking forward when you shift

  • A burning rubber smell

  • Frequent gear slippage

If you’ve driven your car long enough, you’re probably familiar with how it feels when you drive it. Even if you’re not experiencing any of the obvious symptoms above, but something just feels different with your clutch, come and see us. We’re happy to take a look at it.
