Simply put, the clutch in a vehicle transfers power from the engine to the wheels. It’s made up of various parts including the pressure plate, clutch disk, friction plate, flywheel, and more. Being one of the hardest working components in your vehicle, it comes as no surprise that over time it will begin to experience wear and tear.
If your clutch has begun to make noises or you’re having difficulty changing gears, you’ll want to have a professional diagnose the problem.

What are the symptoms of a bad clutch?
When you drive a manual car, you’re going to shift a lot, so replacing your clutch is simply a fact of life. If you’re experiencing any of these signs, your clutch may be worn or damaged.
- Chirping or squealing sounds when clutch is pressed: could be a problem with the pilot bearing or throwout bearing
- Grinding sounds (dragging clutch): could be a problem with the pressure plate
- Burning smell: likely caused by an improper connection between the flywheel and the disc
- Noisy clutch pedal: a noisy clutch pedal is often associated with the clutch fork
- Noise during acceleration: this often occurs when the clutch can’t keep a consistent grip with the flywheel

Correctly repairing a clutch involves all worn and damaged clutch system components. Don’t be fooled by low price clutch shops or specials on clutch repair. Replacement of all worn and damaged clutch components is necessary to ensure a full life from your new clutch. Often low-price clutch jobs are just that; low price. These shops keep their prices low by reusing worn or even worst yet damaged parts. Or even in some cases will quote you a low price to get you in the door, then bait and switch once your vehicle is in pieces.
At Marty’s Transmissions, we only use new parts and will quote you a price to replace and resurface your clutch assembly, to factory or better specs. That’s why we can guarantee in writing that our clutches will last.
If your clutch makes noise, chatters, slips, feels hard, or the stroke is long, there are several reasons that can factor into these issues. Come see us today for a free clutch evaluation, and we will let you know what the problem may be.
