High-Quality Clutch Rebuilds and Repairs
A clutch is a mechanical device used in cars that connects your engine to the drivetrain. A clutch is an important part of your car or truck that enables your vehicle to operate smoothly and safely. It uses friction to minimize the difference in speeds (slippage) between your engine and the driveshaft. At Alberta Transmission Service, we have been offering quality clutch rebuilds in Edmonton for over 25 years and can diagnose and repair clutches in practically any passenger vehicle.
If your clutch is faulty, it will have to be removed and rebuilt. This is a complicated procedure involving the removal of your car’s transmission that is best left to professional technicians. With our team at work, you can rest assured that your clutch will be repaired and rebuilt efficiently. A new clutch will go a long way in improving your overall driving experience and the safety of your vehicle.
Reasons Your Clutch Isn’t Working
Several issues can cause your clutch to stop working, including:
Slipping Clutch While Driving
This problem occurs when you rest your foot on the clutch pedal or due to a seized release system.
A jammed self-adjusting mechanism in a clutch can lead to improper functioning. You can either replace or repair the clutch.
Due to oil leakage, your clutch can get covered with oil. In this case, clean the excess oil.
Excessive clutch slippage can lead to overheating. Consult our clutch rebuild professionals in Edmonton for suggestions.
Lack of clutch lubrication results in a broken location lug, which creates unusual sound. You can either apply high temp grease or replace the clutch.
Why Should You Have Your Clutch Repaired or Replaced?
A worn-out clutch can make your car almost unbearable to drive at times, with symptoms including slipping and shuddering. What's more, a clutch that needs to be replaced can put unnecessary wear and tear on other parts of your car, including your tires, brakes, and engine. While not the least inexpensive or quickest to perform, replacing your clutch can result in saving time and money in the long term.

- The smell of something burning under your hood
- If it only takes a small push on the pedal to disengage your clutch
- If you change gears while driving from 3rd to 2nd and your RPMs don't increase
