Typically, clutch components are replaced at the same time to bring the system back to original condition, since it’s easier to change parts with the transmission removed from the engine.
Honda’s “Shifting Gears” program is designed to give young people confidence in driving manual, and experience the excitement of being in full control of a car.
Air filters, cabin air filters, oil filters and (sometimes) fuel and transmission filters are important maintenance parts that typically are replaced according to a time and/or mileage schedule.
AAMCO is seeking single- and multi-unit franchisee operators “who are passionate about the brand and committed to providing the highest-quality service,” the company noted.
There are still more than 15 million manual-equipped vehicles on the road that will eventually need a replacement clutch (some more than once). So manual clutch kits will be with us for many years to come.
Mevotech’s TTX Terrain Tough boxes are made of recycled materials and require less ink than most boxes in the industry, according to the company. TORONTO — Mevotech recently accepted an award for the company’s product packaging during the 2013 Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas. Mevotech was recognized for its TTX Terrain
The clutch couples the engine to the transmission, and transmits torque from the flywheel to the transmission input shaft. Major components include the transmission (RWD or 4WD) or transaxle (FWD or AWD), clutch (pressure plate and disc), release bearing, pilot bearing (if used), clutch linkage (hydraulic or cable) and shift linkage. Manual gearboxes are
Automatic transmissions are mostly used with Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) while automatic transaxles are used with Front-Wheel Drive (FWD). All-Wheel Drive (AWD) and Four-Wheel Drive (4WD) vehicles may use either a transmission or transaxle depending on the configuration of the drivetrain. Major automatic transmission components include the torque converter (a fluid coupling located between the
In most cases, the clutch parts are new and are matched to the very close tolerances demanded by compact engine compartments and transmission and trans-axle configurations.
Riding the clutch increases the temperature of the clutch and accelerates wear. As wear increases, the clutch may lose some of its grip and start to slip.

● AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION — A transmission that shifts itself using engine RPM, load and other inputs to regulate shift points and gear engagement. Late model automatics have electronic/hydraulic controls operated by the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or its own Transmission Control Module (TCM). Most late model automatics have five or six gears (speeds), though some
