The problems that develop with manual transmissions may involve anything from a clutch going out to a pin missing, which allows the transmission to become misaligned to a bad flywheel. If your mechanic replaces your clutch, he will clean the pressure plate and flywheel to ensure that there is no oil on these surfaces.
Your clutch uses friction changes to keep the torque transfer modulated, between your engine and your transmission. Because of this, they do develop wear, if you drive your car every day. The clutch may need to be replaced more often in these cars. Short clutch life can also be caused by pulling heavy loads. Even if you’re careful, it’s normal to need to replace the clutch after about 60,000 miles and if you have excellent driving habits, you can extend the life of the clutch. Your flywheel can also need attention - and at times it wears out and needs replacement.
What are the signs of clutch & flywheel wear?
A slipping clutch, clutch judder, or any unusual noises are signs of wear can mean a new clutch is required. Sometimes, these problems might not be detected as a clutch release failure. If you have gear slippage, smell a smell similar to burnt toast or feel clutch vibrations, you could have a bad flywheel. If your car is making any unusual sounds, then a proper evaluation by Bob's Transmissions is needed to find out exactly what the problem is. It is also a good idea to pay attention to any warning lights.
These will give you a good indication of what could be faulty in your car. Resolving any of these issues is not possible by an unprofessional. You can handle basic types of repair work yourself, but handling heavy repairs, especially for the manual transmission is very difficult. Whatever the problem is, it’s wise to take your car in and have a manual transmission specialist look at it.
