Car not accelerating? It could be your clutch

Category: How To Auto Repair

If you drive a standard car and your car is not accelerating when you push on the gas, then your clutch is a probable cause. It needs to be replaced around every 160 000 km. This is not something you can do on your own and would need a specialized mechanic to do so. Depending on the make of your car, replacing your clutch can cause around $600 - $1200.

In my Toyota Celica, it cost $700 and is an all day job. A Honda Civic or Corolla would cost half the time and can be as low as $400 to perform.
