shifter on vehicle

If you drive a vehicle with a manual transmission, you know that clutch replacement can be an expensive and time-consuming job. R & D Automotive Specialists, Inc in Lacombe has some tips to keep your clutch replacements as infrequent as possible.

Pay attention to your takeoff and shifting habits. Too much throttle when you let out the clutch will burn it up in short order and shifting at the wrong time while driving causes extreme stress on a part which already works incredibly hard.

Watch for transmission and engine leaks. If the seals in your engine or transmission are failing, or a leak from elsewhere is making its way to your clutch, it will significantly decrease the clutch’s life and efficiency. Oil breaks down the material your clutch is made of, causes excessive slippage, and builds upon parts that rely on cleanliness to operate.

Use good quality replacement parts. While the eBay special is enticing, you really get your money’s worth when you buy a clutch. Spring the extra cash for a quality kit, and you won’t regret it. It’ll last far longer and function much better, saving you money in the long run, while also increasing your vehicle’s performance. Clutch parts already take more of a beating than most parts, they aren’t easy to replace, and durability is an essential aspect of clutch operation. Always go for the good stuff.

From clutches to oil changes, R & D Automotive Specialists, Inc in Lacombe always uses OEM or better-quality parts and provides professional and efficient service. The next time your car, truck, or SUV needs maintenance or repair, trust one of our expert technicians to do the job right. Call or come by today.
