Clutches need regular maintenance to operate efficiently. If your clutch isn’t working properly your mpg (mileage per gallon of petrol) will suffer, and eventually your car will break down completely.

Clutches are not designed to last the life of your car, although how long they do last will depend on your style of driving and the amount of city driving you do. Slipping the clutch or driving with your foot resting on the clutch will certainly shorten its life. Automatic, or semi-automatic gearboxes do not need as much maintenance but they do require regular inspection and the gearbox fluid should be changed in line with your car manufacturer’s guidelines. Our mechanics can quickly identify and fix any problems you might be having with your car’s clutch, or its automatic gearbox.
