4 Ways to Tell Your Clutch is Going Out...
1. Soft Clutch
This occurs when the pedal is soft and can go all the way down without any resistance. The sensation at times can be called "spongy". This is usually the first indication of a clutch that is weakening.
2. Smell of Something Burning
Sometimes the smell is evident inside the vehicle.
3. Trouble Shifting Gears
These symptoms include when the clutch feels as if it is slipping, the clutch grabs or shudders as it is in engaged, noise or vibration coming from the area of the clutch and finally when the clutch is unable to engage the transmission into gear.
4. Visible Clutch Component Damage
In some instances we can actually see the damage upon removal of the cover on the bottom.
