If you drive a manual transmission you may be surprised to find out that it has more than one clutch. And it turns out that some automatic transmissions also can have clutches, too.
The most common problem with clutches is that the friction material on the disc eventually wears out. The friction material on a clutch disc is very similar to the friction material on the pads of a disc brake or the shoes of a drum brake— after a while, it wears away. When most or all the friction material is gone, the clutch will start to slip, and eventually it won't transmit any power from the engine to the wheels.

Sometimes the problem is not with slipping, but with sticking. If your clutch won't release properly, it will continue to turn the input shaft. This can cause grinding, or completely prevent your car from going into gear.
Some common reasons a clutch may stick are:
- Broken or stretched clutch cable
- Leaky or defective slave and/or master clutch cylinders
- Air in the hydraulic lines
- Misadjusted linkages
- Mismatched clutch components
- An oil leak
The transmission whether it is an automatic or manual it is one of the most complex engineering components in your vehicle. We can diagnose and rectify the issues. We also perform transmission servicing / preventative repairs and often a drain, clean and flush, replacement of oils, gaskets, filters, adjustments and road test can add many more years of motoring and minimise running costs.
- Look for any drips from your transmission. This check-up can help warn you about several differing issues.
- Transmission fluid is dyed bright red, and we can tell a lot from the colour and smell of the fluid.
- A transmission in need of repair or service can shift gears for no apparent reason and is often accompanied by a change in the pitch or jerkiness.
- If there are thuds or clunks when it shifts gears, it could signal potential issues.
