San Diego Clutch Replacement

When you feel your vehicle shifting funny, be sure to bring it into your one-stop auto repair shop, Import Auto Specialists (IAS). Your clutch is in good hands with the expert auto mechanics at Import Auto Specialists, located in San Diego, CA. Your clutch consists of 5 main parts that work together to sync the engine to your wheels allowing your engine to run at full speed while enabling your wheels to slow or stop; the clutch is found within your transmission.

What is a clutch? Some might say it is the pedal on the floor left of your brake pedal in a manual transmission car; they would be half right as the clutch pedal is the switch that causes the assembly to operate, the clutch itself is the contraption that does the work. Automatic transmissions also have clutches; however, they are automated, so you don't have to use your foot to coordinate shifting. The five primary parts within a clutch are: 1) flywheel, 2) pressure plate, 3) disc, 4) throw-out bearing, and 5) release system. Clutches can need an adjustment from time to time; it is a precision component of your vehicle that needs the perfect amount of play to respond cleanly to your demands when under load. If you notice that shifting is becoming difficult, it may be time to bring your car into your auto repair experts at Import Auto Specialists in San Diego and have your clutch issue diagnosed and possibly adjusted.
