You may not have ever given it any thought but your clutch enables you to connect and control the power of the engine to your gearbox – which enables you to move. It is absolutely essential that your clutch is working correctly and that wear is monitored, otherwise you could run into problems.
What a Clutch Does:
Have you ever thought about what a clutch actually does? Well, in technical terms, a clutch initiates motion or increases the velocity of a mass generally by transferring kinetic energy from another moving item and disengaging the drive so you can change gear.
In terms that a driver is going to understand, basically the clutch is simply a connection between the engine and the transmission that can be connected and disconnected by a pedal. Very basically, it consists of a disc that is mounted to the rear of the engine, this is called a flywheel, and a disc mounted in the front of the transmission. When these discs are allowed to touch, the engine’s power is transmitted to the transmission. Pressing the clutch pedal down releases the clutch from the flywheel. The idea is, by gradually releasing the clutch pedal, which gradually increases the pressure on the transmission clutch disc as it touches the flywheel, and gently increasing the RPM of the motor, so that initially the disc slips against the flywheel, then as the speed of the engine matches the speed if the transmission, full pressure is applied to the clutch, and the clutch disc stops slipping against the flywheel.
Mechanically speaking, there is a lot more to it, because there are a lot of different components to the system, hence the reason it is so important to use a professional company like Same Day Clutches Glasgow.

You would be most likely to notice this when changing gears, this is normally when the clutch plate is not at a correct adjustment level or the central plate is sticking on the splines, this could definitely be the cause of a clutch dragging.
Slipping occurs when the driven disc fails to rotate at the same speed as the driving members when the clutch is fully engaged. This condition can result whenever the clutch pressure plate fails to hold the disc tight against the face of the flywheel. If clutch slippage is severe, the engine speed will rise very quickly on acceleration, while the vehicle will gradually increases in speed. If the slippage goes un-noticed and un-treated, it can lead to bigger problems.
A vehicle clutch normally proves reliable for thousands of miles, however, daily driving in town traffic will normally wear out a clutch a lot quicker than motorway driving. Every time a clutch is engaged, the clutch disc and other vital components are subjected to considerable heat, friction, and wear hence the chance that the clutch will need repaired or replaced.
