Many people take their engine for granted. Consider the weight that this crucial element of your vehicle has to carry. After years of use, and many kilometers of travel, clutch repair becomes necessary. A bad clutch can greatly affect your ability to control the vehicle.
The release device (clutch) can be hydraulic or mechanical. The device is likely to become noisy as lubricant dries out and the mechanism wears down. A cable, rod or connection may begin to scrape, squeal, or clunk.
If the car is noisy when the transmission is in neutral, but the noise goes away when you depress the clutch pedal, it’s possible the noise is coming from a worn-out input shaft bearing.
It happens when the friction or clutch disc remains engaged or stuck, so the transmission input shaft keeps spinning even when you fully depress the clutch pedal. Since the input shaft is still spinning, trying to shift gears, specially into reverse, will cause them to clash or grind.
Clutch problems can also prevent you from getting into or out of reverse or third gear.
A stuck gear may indicate problems with the linkage adjustment, a linkage malfunction, or a warped or damaged clutch plate.
