Engines are getting stronger and stronger by the day. High performance is the term to know in the world of diesels today, but there’s still a seriously weak link – the clutch. Almost every driver has experienced a slipping clutch at some point in time, even if you never have another single problem with the truck itself. Wondering why? Many of today’s clutches aren’t rated for the abuse you dish out to an engine. Instead, you’re talking about stock parts that just can’t stand up to the force required for today’s best engines.
What You Can Do
If you’re tired of feeling your clutch slip continually, consider having an adjustment done. Adjustments take very little time and not a lot of cash. Keep in mind you may have to have it adjusted a few times before you actually get the level of performance expected.
If that doesn’t solve your problem, it may be time to shop for a new clutch assembly. Before you buy anything, though, make certain the shop takes into account the level of horsepower you currently have as well as the work you do with your truck. You’ll want something that supplies enough clamping load to keep it from slipping again and again.
