3 Signs You May Need Your Clutch Replaced

How do you know if your clutch is wearing out in your import vehicle? When do you need to have your clutch replaced? Below, we take a look at some of the warning signs leading up to clutch repair and clutch replacement in import cars.

#1 – Your Clutch Keeps Slipping.

When driving a manual shift vehicle, your clutch should have no problem engaging or disengaging the different gears. However, if you notice your clutch starting to slip or lose power when performing basic tasks, such as accelerating or driving uphill, it may be a sign that your clutch is wearing out.

#2 – You Smell Burning Rubber (or a general, burning smell).

One of the telltale signs of a worn out clutch in import cars is the burning odor that occurs from the result of friction. If you smell this while driving, schedule an appointment with a certified automotive shop that specializes in clutch repair and replacement.

#3 – You Have Difficulty Shifting Gears.

Often, when a clutch is worn out, you may experience difficulty or sticking when trying to shift gears. You may also notice that the clutch becomes increasingly difficult to depress while shifting gears.
