Signs of a Slipping Clutch

If you’re not sure if the issues you’re experiencing are related to your clutch, common signs of a slipping clutch include:

  • Squeaking or unusual noises when pressing clutch
  • Difficulties shifting gears
  • Clutch pedal sticks or feels spongey
  • Engine revs but acceleration is poor
  • Loss of acceleration from a “slipping” clutch

Another key factor in your clutch’s lifespan is how you drive day to day. Most clutches are designed to last up to 100,000 miles before needing replacement but quality of driving and how well you stay up on service are two key factors that can contribute to a faster wearing clutch.
