Do you have clutch problems in Olathe KS?

Does your clutch need to be replaced, or is it a problem that can be solved in a more cost-effective way? Want to learn more about the most common causes of clutch failure? You've come to the right place - where do I start?

  • Is the clutch fluid low or dirty? When a customer brings us a vehicle with a clutch complaint, one of the first things we look at is the clutch fluid. Dirty fluid and low fluid levels indicate a problem with the clutch system. What does this mean? Dirty fluid is typically caused by the seals inside the master cylinder failing as a result of wear, age, lack of maintenance, and contaminated fluid. As a vehicle ages, so does its clutch system. Seals, fluids, and friction materials degrade over time. A low fluid level usually indicates the presence of a leak somewhere, which is likely the result of something wearing out. Is it possible it's a clutch master or slave cylinder? Stop by and our team at L&D Auto Specialists and we will inspect it.
  • Is it getting harder to shift? Is it getting harder to shift and/or engage your transmission? When a master cylinder starts to fail, the shifting facility suffers as well. Hydraulic pressure is necessary for smooth, flawless shifting, but when the master cylinder fails, the all-important pressure goes with it. When the pedal is depressed, there is no pressure and you can't shift gears properly. This can cause the famous gear squeal when shifting, as well as a transmission that slips out of gear in some cases.
  • Is your clutch pedal behaving strangely? A defective clutch master cylinder not only makes it difficult to shift gears, but is also often accompanied by a pedal that behaves strangely, i.e. acts abnormally. A soft, spongy or low pedal is one such anomaly.
  • Is it time to replace my clutch? When you step on the clutch pedal, do you hear a squealing noise? Then your clutch is most likely worn and needs to be replaced. A manual transmission clutch should last between 30,000 and 100,000 miles on average. However, this varies depending on how you drive - do you drive like you own it or like you owe a lot of money? Your driving style plays an important role in determining when the clutch will need to be replaced. However, friction material wears out over time, and when this happens, the clutch needs to be replaced. Do you need a clutch replacement in Olathe KS?
    • Is your clutch slipping? The transmission clutch disc assembly in your vehicle is made of a friction material on both sides of a disc/plate. The clutch disc is made of the same material as the brake lining on your brake pads and shoes. When the friction material wears out, it can cause slippage. Slippage can also be caused by oil-soaked friction material, a deformed pressure plate or weak springs.
    • What is the best way to tell if my clutch is slipping?
      • Does your engine start to rev unusually when you start it (from a stop) or when you accelerate, almost as if it is slipping?
      • Is your vehicle's fuel economy starting to deteriorate (or already deteriorating)?
      • Do you have to downshift more frequently when driving up a hill or incline?
      • Do you have a stiff clutch that requires more effort to shift gears?
    • Are you suffering by clutch noise? Clutch vibration is a shuddering sensation experienced when the clutch is engaged. The most common cause of this phenomenon is contamination of the clutch disc friction surfaces, which is usually caused by an oil or hydraulic fluid leak in the clutch disc. In some cases, flywheel repair can cure clutch vibration.
    • Is your clutch dragging? Clutch drag occurs when the clutch disc does not fully release when the clutch pedal is depressed. Clutch drag can be caused by an improperly adjusted clutch. In most cases, clutch drag occurs when your clutch is worn.

Looking for a clutch shop in Olathe KS that you can trust to provide cost-effective solutions?

We are your local clutch expert, and we are here to help you with all of your clutch service needs, but we also want to help you get to know your clutch system. Whether your vehicle has a self-adjusting, manually operated or performance clutch, it's critical that this component is properly maintained. Have a question for us?

How come we need to replace our clutch?

Answer: Over time, your vehicle's clutch will need to be replaced because it will wear out. Your engine is constantly turning, but your vehicle's wheels are not. To stop your car without the engine shutting off, the wheels must be disconnected from the engine somehow. By controlling the slip between them, your clutch allows you to smoothly engage a spinning engine to a non-spinning transmission.

When you depress the clutch, the pressure plate pushes against a flywheel, connecting the transmission to the engine and allowing you to shift gears. The friction caused by this repetitive action wears down the clutch, pressure plate, flywheel, springs, accompanying gears, bearings (throwout bearing) and other components over time.

They took the time to properly assess the damage, and gave me options.

I was referred to L & D Auto by a friend of mine. I drive a BMW & was not aware of the faulty timing chain for 2012-2014 X3 models. When it broke, it caused significant damage. Baron BMW "assessed" the damage & told me I needed a complete new engine for 13K! I immediately had it towed to L & D. They took the time to properly assess the damage, and gave me options. Although it was still a costly repair, it was nothing like what Baron quoted me

The service was great and affordable. Jose was very nice and told me about the condition of my car and the possible repairs

I found L&D Auto Specialist using Google search and I was skeptical at first. I wasn't sure what to expect of this auto repair shop. I guess I didn't want to walk into an expensive auto shop. I needed transmission service and we all know it's not cheap. The service was great and affordable. Jose was very nice and told me about the condition of my car and the possible repairs that I will have to do soon...
