Every manual transmission will eventually need clutch repair. Depending on your year, make, and model, you should start looking at your clutch around 85,000 miles to ensure that everything is working correctly. Here are three signs you may need clutch repair services:
- Slipping Issues – When the clutch plate starts to wear down, it will cause your clutch to slip. The power will not transfer to the transmission, and you will have trouble shifting into a different gear. This is a common issue when you ride the clutch.
- Master and Slave Cylinders Goes Bad – These cylinders have seals and boots on them that wear over time. When they are worn down, they start to leak. When you lose hydraulic fluid from these points, your clutch pedal will stop working effectively.
- Hydraulic Fluid Problems – Your hydraulic fluid should be flushed at least every 100,000 miles. When the fluid is not flushed, it becomes less dense which will make it less effective.
