How do I know if my clutch is slipping?
Car hesitates before accelerating: Hesitation when trying to accelerate most likely means your clutch is not delivering enough boost to accelerate the wheels via the transmission.
Burning smell: If you smell something burning, it could be your clutch.
Clutch disengages too quickly: Your clutch could be slipping if, it doesn't take much pressure on the pedal to disengage out of gear.
RPMs are too high: If your RPMs are higher than normal to get to a certain speed, your clutch may need to be replaced.
What causes a clutch to fail?
The clutch is the hardest working component in a manual transmission vehicle. The clutch engages and disengages with every start, stop and gear change. Friction is created between the clutch disc, pressure plate and flywheel. This friction creates heat and wear on your clutch. The hotter the clutch disc gets the faster it wears out.
