Tip 1: How to check the traction drive

Coupling - detail of the car, which is responsible for the interaction of the engine and gearbox.Components of the clutch, like most parts of the car are under a constant load.Despite the fairly large resource of clutch parts, it requires regular inspection and maintenance.
main reasons for which it is necessary to repair the clutch, are the increased noise when the clutch is engaged, jerks at the clutch,

incomplete inclusion of coupling (the clutch "slips"), incomplete clutch(clutch "leads").
To check the clutch sit in the car, cock a lay brake, turn off the music and other devices makes noise.In order not to interfere with external sounds, close the windows and doors.First of all, ponazhimayte the clutch pedal with the engine off.The pedal must be pressed gently, evenly, without gaps and rattles.If you see the increased noise and other sounds, make sure that they do not come from the pedal return spring.If your car is used to clutch cable, the noise may come from it.If ther
e is background noise when you, make sure it is not from the gearbox, otherwise the clutch needs to be repaired.
Start the engine of the car, and not including the transmission again press on the clutch pedal.Changes as you press the pedal or the rustling noise can indicate wear of the clutch release bearing.In the case of cable-operated clutch, noise can be worn cable.
For the next test, make sure you have a well-adjusted brake.Get into the car, the most cock the parking brake and start the engine.Depress the clutch pedal until the end and engage first gear.Do not release the parking brake, slowly release the clutch pedal.Do not tap on the gas pedal.If, as you release the clutch, the engine revs start to fall significantly until the engine flameout, the clutch is operating correctly.Otherwise, the clutch is not fully switched off and in need of repair.
To check the clutch engagement, sit in the car and start the engine.On the motor is running, depress the clutch pedal until the end.After one - two seconds after pressing, turn the speed back.If the transmission is switched smoothly and without effort, clutch in order.In addition, the motor is running, try to switch between first and reverse gear.Press the clutch and engage first gear, without releasing the clutch, disconnect speed.Release the clutch pedal and then press again and turn on the reverse.Repeat the cycle several times.If switching occurs smoothly and without a crunch, your grip properly.Otherwise, check the clutch basket and a friction disk.

Tip 2: How to check the clutch

Operation of any internal combustion engine of a vehicle is in the rotational motion of the flywheel.Succumbing to "gazku", the driver increases the speed of rotation of the crankshaft and flywheel, but driving on the road should be connected to the flywheel gearbox.This should be done slowly so that the engine is not stalled.When you stop the car also needs a smooth shutdown of transmission from the engine.With this problem in the car copes grip.

principle of this device is quite simple: two rotating disk - a flywheel of the engine and the clutch plate - are joined, the rotational motion of the motor is transferred to the transmission (wheels) and the car starts to move.Disks are compressed together by means of special mechanisms and their special surface mounted pad.One hundred years ago, when the first cars, the clutch was a conical shape and covered with leather.

basic malfunctions of coupling can occur in the process of "opening-closing", iewheels or not compress, or can not be separated.In such cases, experienced motorists say the clutch "slips," or "lead".The signs of his worsening will be visible to the driver without any special devices.When traveling by car the smell of burning, and the car began to accelerate worse, especially noticeable on the rise with the loss of speed, it is not nothing but a "stalling."

In this situation you can independently check the clutch with the engine running and the parking brake.If you try to pull away the car should stall.If this did not happen - the clutch "slips".The reasons can be several.This large clutch pedal, and the wear of the friction linings can wear Clutch release spring or disturbance in the hydraulic drive clutch.

You can also check the clutch independently to determine "leads" or not.With the engine running when the vehicle is necessary to engage first gear.When the clutch pedal is fully depressed switch the transmission should not be accompanied by spurts or unpleasant noise.All these signs indicate malfunction of adhesion, iewheels is completely diverge, respectively, in a transmission drive shaft continues to rotate, and when the moving gear impinge on fixed.

This often occurs when the free course of a pedal or in contact with air in the hydraulic system (system zavozdushena).In such situations, there is only one way out - to address on HUNDRED for elimination of clutch failure.What is to be replaced in the node can be determined only after the removal of the clutch with the vehicle.At home, this procedure is fairly difficult, so further work to eliminate malfunctions of coupling to charge experts.

  • Symptoms clutch
- Before checking the clutch according to the instruction manual of the machine, adjust the clutch.
- As workers wear on the friction disc, the clutch pedal goes up.The clutch begins to "miss" above.
Helpful Hint
- Before checking the clutch actuator, perform the checks adjust the clutch pedal, very often the problem with the inclusion of transmissions occur due to incorrect adjustment of the clutch.
