A well functioning clutch transmits the torque from the engine to the drivetrain. It enables smooth vehicle movement by properly delivering the power from the engine and reduces drive-related vibrations.
Don’t be surprised to know that just like manually driven cars, even automatic ones have clutches. It is an important aspect of a car as the engine keeps spinning all the time but not the wheels of the car. For a car to halt without affecting the engine, the wheels have to be disconnected from the main engine, somehow. The clutch does exactly this. It allows the car to smoothly engage an engine which is spinning to a non-spinning transmission by effectively controlling the slippage between them.
The clutch plate comes with springs which help to isolate the transmission from the shock of the engaged clutch. A clutch in good condition can easily last more than 80,000 miles if used gently and maintained well. If not, they start to breakdown at 35,000 miles. Vehicles such as trucks, which are frequently overloaded and tow heavy loads, can encounter frequent problems with relatively new clutches as well.
Today, contemporary clutches comprise of four parts – the cover plate, the driven plate, the pressure plate, and the release bearing. Where, the cover plate is bolted to the flywheel. The pressure plate applies pressure on the driven plate via a diaphragm spring. The driven plate runs on a splined shaft situated between flywheel and pressure plate. While, the release bearing is used to push against the diaphragm spring. This push can be either applied hydraulically or by a cable and spring load is increased to interrupt power transmission.
