When your clutch fails in your transmission the costs can vary depending on the make and age of your car. The three main aspects associated with clutch repairs are the pressure plate, clutch disc and throw out bearing.
In some cases in a addition to the clutch being replaced the flywheel may need to be resurfaced and the slave or master cylinder replaced. It is important to maintain the integrity of the transmission fluid as well as the levels to avoid causing damage to the clutch.
We will check for leaks, replacing the main seal and input shaft before reassembling the parts to make sure you don't have a reoccurring issue with the clutch being damaged. But don't panic, this is a common job we have done thousands of times and it doesn't take long to get you back on the road again.
The parts are not that expensive, mostly the labor costs associated with this type of repair are the majority of the final cost. At The Lake Worth Transmission Repair Shop in Palm Beach County we have great labor rates and expert technicians which is a big reason why we have so thousands of loyal customers.
With automatic transmission repair you don't have the typical clutch as in manual transmissions. These clutches are plates and bands that propel the power through the transmission controlled manner in nanoseconds. These "disks" have a textile reinforced polymer coating that lets them make contact with steel plates in a desirable manner to achieve long lasting performance. These clutch disks and plates are stacked alternating between the two inside your clutch drum with splines through them. Hydraulic pistons create the pressure to make this complex clutch system work.
When the groves in the disks are worn off or the coated material on the disks lose their protective coating then you have metal on metal which causes a slipping clutch and debris to scatter about your transmission which eventually causes more serious problems. So you should get your clutch repairs asap if you have any warning signs of slipping.
