WARNING SIGNS

  • DRAG - Sticking brakes, hot wheels or engine which seems to have lost power.  Brakes may be failing to release; the condition can reverse itself, leaving you with no brakes at all.
  • PULL - Vehicle pulls to one side when brakes are applied.  May be underinflated tire, misadjusted brakes or brakes are in need of repair.
  • HARD PEDAL - Requires extreme pressure to make brakes function.  Can indicate power brake trouble, restricted hydraulic lines, frozen calipers or wheel cylinders, or damaged brake linings
  • BRAKE LIGHTS - Red indicates a problem as simple as the parking brake on, or low fluid, to something as serious as a hydraulic system failure.  Yellow indicates deactivation of your ABS system.  While your brakes should work, it does require inspection at the first opportunity.
  • VIBRATION - Brake pedal, steering wheel or entire vehicle shakes, vibrates or pulsates when brake is applied.  May indicate need to resurface disc brake rotors - or signal a serious problem of a loose component or faulty steering mechanism.
  • SQUEAL - Brakes should operate with a minimal amount of noise.  Some noise is normal but excessive squeal, screech, grinding, groaning, chatter, clatter or bang means your brakes need attention.
  • LOW PEDAL - Pedal nearly touches floorboard before brakes function.  May activate your brake warning light.  Problem may require a simple adjustment - or indicate something much more serious.
  • GRAB - "Touchy" brakes that grab with the least pressure.  May indicate a problem as simple as grease or oil contaminated linings - or as serious as loose or broken component ready to fail in an emergency.

Free Clutch ChecksHolden_2012

In case you are in any doubt that your clutch is actually faulty we will complete a free clutch check while you wait.  Through our expert diagnosis we will be able to tell if your clutch is faulty before we start any work on your vehicle.  If you think that you are having problems with your clutch just bring your vehicle along to All-Tek Automotives in Dandenong and one of our skilled technicians will check out the problem with no obligation.  Contact All-Tek Automotives To Enquire

How The Clutch Works

The clutch connects and disconnects the engine from the gearbox (transmission) allowing smooth gearchange and control of the engine power.

A clutch plate (driven plate) is coated on both sides with a hard wearing high friction material. This is situated between the engine flywheel and a spring loaded pressure plate. The spring/pressure can be released by depressing the clutch pedal.

While driving, the whole clutch assembly can be turning at very high speeds. To allow a non rotating clutch pedal to control the rotating clutch assembly a clutch release bearing uses a fork acting on a thrust face

Clutch - Controlling Engine TorqueHyundai

The clutch has to transmit the engine power to the wheels allowing the vehicle to move. The torque of the engine is transferred by the clutch system relying entirely on the contact friction between 2 faces. A slipping clutch occurs when the friction is too low (often due to clutch wear) or engine torque is too high (during rapid acceleration)

Controlling Power Transmission via The Clutch - Clutch Slip

The torque capacity (how much power can be transmitted without slipping) depends upon:

The Coefficient of Friction of the engaging Clutch Faces Diameter of the Clutch Plate The Pressure or Spring Loading

In order to use greater engine torque in high performance vehicles a multi-face clutch may be used compared to the single plate clutch system adopted on most cars.

How a Car Clutch Works with Normal Manual Driving

A car clutch is engaged/disengaged using the left most "clutch" pedal.
The clutch pedal is depressed to disengage the engine from the gearbox and drive train while changing gears. Once the gear is selected, the clutch pedal is released and the engine is once-again linked via the drive train
The clutch operation can be actuated by:

A Mechanical LinkageMercedes_4_door

The clutch pedal is connected directly to the clutch assembly via a mechanical linkage such as cable or chain.

A Hydraulic Clutch

Depressing the clutch pedal increases pressure in a hydraulic piston coupled to the clutch pedal. The increased pressure is transferred to a secondary piston that operates a lever to engage-disengage the clutch plates.

An Electronic clutch-Clutch by Wire

Sensors detect the position of the clutch pedal electronically and interpret the position using an Electronic control Unit (ECU) that computes the best way to operate the clutch based upon information relayed from other sensors indicating driving speed, engine speed and so on. The ECU relays information to a servo unit to actuate clutch operation.

Clutch Servicing, Kit Fitting & Repairs

Dual Mass Flywheel Clutch Assembly

Dual-Mass Flywheels are fitted in many light commercial vehicles covering very high mileages requiring regular clutch replacement.Merc_van

* dual mass flywheels

* concentric slave cylinders

* self-adjusting cover assembly

New clutches fitted to most makes of cars using the recommended clutch kits

Clutch Master Cylinder

Pumping the clutch pedal to disengage the clutch is a classic symptom of loss of hydraulic fluid from the hydraulic clutch system and may be indicative of a leak or ruptured seal in the clutch master cylinder or clutch slave cylinder

Clutch Slave CylinderLight_truck

The clutch fittings that link the clutch slave cylinder to the master cylinder can leak but it's also worth checking the piston seals on the clutch slave cylinder
