Clutch and Transmission inspection, repair & replacement
The clutch system is a mechanical system in an internal combustion engine (ICE) car with a manual or semi-automatic transmission. Made up of two main parts, the clutch plate and the flywheel, the clutch is connected to the engine shaft and the shaft that turns the wheels.
A driver can shift gears or come to a stop by pressing the clutch pedal, allowing the engine to be disengaged from the transmission. After the clutch pedal is released, the clutch re-engages, transferring power to the wheels and allowing the vehicle to move.
Simply put, the clutch is a mechanism to connect and disconnect the flow of power to the transmission without stalling the engine. Consisting of a disc, pressure plate, flywheel and bearing, the clutch system is susceptible to wear and tear over time.
Car transmission or the vehicle’s gearbox is the system of 5 to 6 gear sets and other components that transfer power from the engine to the wheels. This is done by providing the right amount of torque and speed control to the wheels so that the car can move at the required speed.
Modern cars are fitted with either of the two main types of car transmissions: manual or automatic. In a manual transmission, the driver uses a clutch pedal and a gear shift to manually select the appropriate gear for the speed required - thus having more control over the vehicle. As opposed to a manual transmission, an automatic transmission system with the help of the vehicle CPU automatically chooses the right gear ratio for the vehicle based on its speed and driving conditions.
Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVT) or “shiftless” gearbox is where the automatic transmission system uses a belt or chain and two pulleys instead of gears to continuously vary the gear ratio. Cars with CVT transmissions usually have better fuel efficiency when compared to automatic transmissions.
Semi-automatic cars, on the other hand, allow the driver to manually shift gears without using a clutch pedal. This system takes advantage of both the basics of a manual and automatic transmission. Instead of the clutch pedal, the vehicle’s CPU and other sensors operate the clutch when the gear is manually changed by the driver.
