The life of your clutch can vary depending on the way that you drive. For example, if you live in a hilly region your clutch will burn faster than those who live in flat land. This is due to the additional friction the clutch will endure when holding the clutch rolling backward down a hill. Engaging the clutch very slowly or releasing it too quickly will also lead to it burning out quicker than it should.
Eurofed of Austin recommends that if you are having trouble accelerating, hearing unusual noises when pressing the clutch, or the clutch feels spongy or is sticking when pressed, it is time for a new clutch. If your clutch is burnt, you’ll also notice a smell that many claim resembles burnt toast.
If you’re not sure how your clutch operates and why it is so critical to keep it in working condition, Eurofed is here to provide some clarity. A clutch connects the car engine to the wheels. Depressing the clutch disconnects the engine and allows your car to free roll while the engine turns at any speed. This allows a car to stop without killing the engine.
