  • You notice a Burnt ‘toast’ or ‘burning rubber’ smell in your car, or smoke from under vehicle

  • Your Vehicle is slipping out of gear for no reason

  • There is jerky or sticky gear operation

  • Your clutch is not disengaging fully, or your clutch is sticking or shuddering

Clutch problems are difficult to diagnose because many issues can cause the same symptoms, depending on the vehicle and type of engine.
