The clutch is a transmission organ positioned between the engine and the gearbox that lets you engage gears and stay put when stopped.
Once activated, it momentarily interrupts transfer of motion from the drive shaft to the drive wheels thus making it possible to change gears. The clutch system consists of three components: the thrust bearing, the disc and the pressure plate that work together to get one end result: your car’s acceleration or deceleration according to the gear engaged.
If you feel that the clutch does not disengage the moment you are shifting or the gearbox itself resists your action, we advise you to check the entire system as soon as possible at an Authorised Jeep Dealership.
When you press the clutch, if you feel it’s harder than usual and the trajectory is longer, or you get the impression that to press it all the way down takes more time than it normally does, you need to bring your car to your garage immediately to check the clutch system status.
What does slipping mean? It's very simple: when setting off or when in maximum torque, the engine’s rpms increase but the speed doesn’t increase in proportion. If you encounter this kind of problem, your car needs to have its clutch system checked.
When the clutch “pulls”, the car starts to jerk when accelerating right after the gear has been engaged. Remember that this component in your car can start to show signs of wear after just 60-80,000 km travelled because its deterioration depends a great deal on the way you drive.
One of the most common consequences of the clutch system wear is a loud noisiness that shows up while you’re driving, in both minimum and maximum torque. This noise becomes
persistent because over time it tends to get worse.
Clutch pedal vibrations are due to flywheel wear, even when it doesn’t show signs of it. Replace it always together with the clutch kit, so you don’t compromise the lifespan of a new clutch.
