Part one of a series on auto mechanics explores clutch repair in Mesa.
Clutch Repair in Mesa: Job #1 for an Auto Mechanic
An auto mechanic can help you with clutch repair. While clutches don’t often need as much in the way of repairs that automatic transmissions do, they still need to be fixed periodically. Clutches have many different issues that come up.
One of the more common ones is a slipping clutch. Pay attention when you shift gears. Clutch slips usually reflect symptoms like changes in engine speed when you don’t accelerate. Another symptom is when you rev your engine, is there any hesitation before your car accelerates? If so, it can mean that there’s no RPM boost. A slipping clutch reduces the amount of power delivered to the drive wheels. If you feel your clutch is slipping, it isn’t something that you can fix, barring a background as an auto mechanic.
Can’t I Fix My Clutch Myself?
Some older vehicles can be fixed with a few simple tools, however, if you don’t know what you’re doing, a car that is worth thousands is a very expensive and rather large paperweight. Even with an older model car, this can be the case. Cars are complex and sophisticated pieces of machinery, so the wrong thing out of place, and what would have been a simple clutch repair in Mesa ends up being an expensive repair that you will be wincing about for months or even years to come.
So, what’s the fix for this? Pay attention to the way your vehicle is running, and in the case of a clutch that needs to be fixed, the way it shifts too.
