Clutch repairs are necessary over time as the clutch takes a large amount of force from the engine to engage and disengage the gearbox and flywheel. Clutches are still is use on an automatic, but obviously no driver interaction is necessary.
A clutch also has its own oil that needs to be replaced periodically, so if you can't remember when you last checked your clutch oil, ask your clutch mechanic about it today. For performance or commercial applications, you may need to utilise a heavy-duty clutch.
See your clutch mechanic about clutch repairs.
