car clutch plate, bearing, clutch pressure plate and flywheel

Brake and Clutch Services.


Clutch Replacement:
At Highway Auto Brakes, our fully equipped workshop in Rockhampton CBD provides for clutch replacement and repairs for all makes and models. All our car repairs come with a lifetime workmanship guarantee*.

If your car has a manual transmission, you would need a clutch to smoothly engage a revving engine to a non-spinning transmission by controlling the slippage between them. A clutch works because of friction between a clutch plate and a flywheel and the clutch consists of several components that are all reliant on each other for smooth operation.

Clutch replacement generally includes replacing the clutch plate, the clutch cover or pressure plate and the release bearing which usually come together as a clutch kit. Replacing the entire clutch kit and machining the flywheel surface at the same time is recommended because replacing one component without the others may lead to premature clutch failure and another expensive clutch repair.
 

Common clutch problems include:


  • Gears grinding or crunching due to failure of the clutch to release properly when pressed.

  • The Excessive force required to press the clutch pedal.

  • The car shudders as the clutch pedal is released.

  • The clutch slips which creates the sensation of the engine revving very high but the car failing to accelerate normally.

 


Clutches also require an operating mechanism between the clutch pedal and the clutch fork which the release bearing is mounted to. This can either be done hydraulically or via a cable. Clutch hydraulic systems consist of a clutch master cylinder and a clutch slave cylinder and lines that carry fluid between them.

Car Cylinder Head Repairs Rockhampton

car engine alloy cylinder head pic The cylinder is the core of the car engine. Within the cylinder, a piston moves up and down to compress the gases which ignite and cause combustion. These exhaust gases are pushed out following the combustion, resulting in the rotation of crankshaft and turning of wheels. The process allows the car to move. Apart from this process, a cylinder head is located on the top of the engine cylinder block and encloses it. This is then further sealed by a head gasket, preventing the leakage of oil or coolant into the cylinder.

In situations of engine overheating, leaking or misfiring, car owners must consider all the warning signs as serious indicators to much needed repair. Highway Auto Mechanical is a Rockhampton based car, SUV, and 4WD engine repair specialist.

Engine Mount Replacement Services Rockhampton

car engine mounts pic Whether you are cruising along a beautiful beach or driving down the highway, your car depends on the engine mount. Typically made of steel and rubber, the engine mount has two important purposes – primarily to secure the engine and transmission to the car’s frame and secondarily to absorb the engine vibrations and road shocks.

The engine mountings ensures that the driver and the passengers in the car don’t feel the strong engine movements. Unfortunately, engine and transmission mounts are often the overlooked causes of the noise and vibrations from the car engines. A loose or broken motor mount allows excessive engine movement, which can cause the belt-driven fan to hit the fan shroud or the radiator hoses and worse scenarios.

The damaged motor mount increases the risk of cooling system failure. Replacing your old mount with an efficiently functioning one from Highway Auto Mechanical, this will not only restores the support to the engine, but immensely decreases the vibrations and noises being transmitted to the entire car, SUV, or 4WD. Highway Auto Mechanical is the most reliable engine mount replacement specialist in Rockhampton.
