Full Answer

Several factors can determine the cost of fixing a clutch, including vehicle make and model, the type of parts used and which parts of the clutch need replacing. For example, replacing the clutch on a European car, high-performance vehicle or exotic car typically costs more than replacing the clutch on an economy car. It also costs more to replace a clutch on a four-wheel drive vehicle as opposed to a two-wheel drive vehicle. Labor costs are also likely to vary between repair shops, so auto owners may want to shop around before selecting an auto shop. Customers can also save money by choosing used parts instead of new parts.

    How can you tell if your clutch is going bad?

    A:

    Indications that the clutch might be failing include the clutch causing a burning smell, the clutch feeling soft, problems shifting and visible damage to the clutch. It's a good idea to drive the vehicle out on the highway, rev up the engine while it's in first gear, and shift it directly into fifth gear. The clutch is most likely starting to go out if the engine continues to rev.
