Signs of a Failing Clutch

So what are some common signs that motorists around Kew, Isleworth, Hounslow, Richmond and Twickenham should be on the lookout for when it comes to clutch trouble?

  • The clutch feels sticky or spongy, or is loose and vibrates when pressed
  • The clutch squeaks or grumbles when pressed
  • Your engine revs normally, but you notice it’s more difficult than usual to accelerate
  • It’s difficult to shift gear
  • Your vehicle’s clutch fluid level drastically declines
  • You notice a pool of clutch fluid under your vehicle’s gearbox
  • Your clutch is slipping after releasing to change gear

Any of these symptoms by themselves or in combination can signal different forms of trouble that may call for clutch repairs. In more extreme cases, replacement may be the best course of action. On average, a clutch should last for upwards of 80,000 miles – so if yours has started to become a pain and regularly requires professional attention, we’d definitely recommend considering swapping it out with a new one, especially if it’s well used.

In many cases we encounter when serving Kew, Isleworth, Hounslow, Richmond and Twickenham clients, it’s a case of a broken or loose clutch cable, broken or loose linkage, a failed master/slave cylinder, leaking hydraulic line, poorly fit throw-out bearing, or a contaminated disc. These are typically situations which lead to sudden failure and immediate need for clutch repairs.

Gradual failures can often be linked to stretched cables, bent linkage, (once again) a failed master/slave cylinder, insufficient hydraulic fluid, or a broken transmission mount. Our approach to diagnostics, combining traditional under-the-bonnet investigation with high-tech equipment which receives and analyses engine-stored fault codes, ensures the right action is always taken.
