Q: Clutch is out

asked by on

The clutch in my car is out.

There are a few variables to account for when a clutch goes out. The clutch itself needs to be checked to see if it’s the only problem as well as the transmission. I recommend having the clutch system checked throughly by a mechanic to properly diagnose and repair your clutch issue as necessary.
