The clutch is a mechanical device which engages and disengages power transmission from the driving shaft to the driven shaft and will sometimes need clutch repairs in Middlebrook. In the simplest application, clutches connect and disconnect two rotating shafts. In most devices one shaft is typically attached to an engine or other power unit while the other shaft provides output power. In a modern car the clutch is operated by a hydraulic or cable connection from the pedal to the clutch. The default state of the clutch is engaged which means the connection between the engine and gearbox is always on unless the clutch pedal is depressed. This disengages the clutch and when the gearbox is in neutral the engine spins the shaft but power is not transmitted to the wheels.
If you have difficulty changing gear there could be a problem with the transmission in your car. In Middlebrook, clutch repairs are part of our expertise. The clutch is often just worn and replacing the worn part is relatively quick. This is the most common cause of the clutch failure. It is not an expensive repair and the clutch works by wear and is designed to be replaced when it wears down. The reason for the clutch is to absorb the huge torque between the engine and the gearbox. Without a clutch the gearbox would quickly strip the gears. The clutch allows the power from the engine to be gradually introduced to the gearbox so that the vehicle drives smoothly.
