Q: Clutch problem

Hi. Clutch problems are not limited to the disc wearing out. Pressure plate, throw out bearing or hydraulic system issues could also be at fault depending on the type of problem you are having. If the clutch is slipping, then worn clutch components such as a disc or pressure plate could be at the heart of the issue. If you have a hard shifting or lack of clutch disengagement when the clutch pedal is pushed, then the issue most likely lies in the clutch hydraulic system such as the clutch slave or master cylinder. You may want to enlist the help of a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to inspect the shifting issue your vehicle is experiencing.
