Many people think that the clutch in your vehicle is just the pedal to the left part of the brake. While this is partially true, do you know what role the clutch plays in keeping your vehicle driving well? Let’s take a look at how the clutch works.

The engine of your vehicle is designed to constantly spin while it’s turned on. If the engine stops spinning, the vehicle will automatically shut down. The transmission in your vehicle transfers that motion to the drive shaft and, in turn, to the wheel of your vehicle. The clutch transmits the torque from the engine to the drivetrain. It smoothly delivers the power from the engine to reduce drive-related vibration. The most important job of the clutch in your vehicle is to disengage the transmission from the motor so that you can shift the gears without grinding.
