Your Vehicle’s Clutch and its Transmission

Your car’s transmission is a complicated system that utilizes your clutch in order to regulate how fast your car is running. Unless you have a newer car that doesn’t use the clutch in order to engage and activate the transmission, your car’s clutch will have a huge impact on the way your transmission runs.

Automatic transmissions, on the other hand, don’t use a clutch. They utilize something called a torque converter instead, which sits between the transmission and engine. This torque converter controls the number of gears when driving newer cars, unlike the older cars where the clutch is responsible for a majority of that work. If you think you have clutch problems in your car but your car is a newer model, your issue might actually be your transmission.

When your vehicle is no longer able to regulate this gear action, heat and friction build-up can result in problems such as difficult shifting, accelerated wear and tear, and even complete transmission failure. Neglecting problems with your car’s clutch is never a good idea. It can lead to a busted transmission or even a total engine rebuild.
