Schedule Transmission and Clutch Replacements in Lansing

Although manual transmission vehicles are not as common as they used to be in the past, they are still around in new and certified pre-owned vehicles. Manual transmission vehicles have clutches that engage and disengage power transmission from a driving shaft to a driven shaft. These mechanical devices separate engines from the cars' transmission systems, allowing you to change gears. These vehicles also have manual transmissions. Our Lansing dealership specializes in new GM vehicles, and we offer transmission and clutch services.

Clutch Replacement

Many vehicles use clutches, and many other devices with two or more rotating shafts also operate with clutches. A clutch assembly usually includes a friction disc and a pressure plate. The friction disc presses against your vehicle engine's flywheel while the pressure plate disengages and engages the friction disc. This plate is usually acted upon by a throw-out bearing.

When you depress your vehicle's clutch pedal, the vehicle's pressure plate will get forced against the throw-out bearing. The friction disc will disengage from the vehicle's flywheel because of this action. Your car's engine will then get disconnected from the vehicle's transmission. Crippen Buick GMC performs clutch repairs for drivers in the Mason, MI region.

Transmission Repairs

The transmission usually manipulates a car's engine output to ensure that you have access to adequate power when driving around Charlotte, MI. The transmission also routes the power produced by the engine to a car's drive wheels. The transmission makes gear ratios using different gears.

Your vehicle's transmission or clutch might wear out after some time, especially if you frequently stop and start your car. Towing heavy loads and keeping your foot on the clutch when decelerating your vehicle may also make your vehicle's clutch and transmission wear out. Since a worn-out clutch can prevent a vehicle from going into gear, you will need to come to our service center and replace your vehicle's clutch or transmission once you notice that either wear out.
