When driving a vehicle with a manual transmission, oftentimes there is a third pedal, or the clutch pedal, that is used to engage and disengage the clutch to the engine.
Disengaging the clutch by pressing down on the clutch pedal allows the driver to shift gears, up or down. Then, by letting off on the clutch pedal, the driver can re-engage the clutch with the engine and into the new gear.
The way your gear shifting works is with help from the gear selector fork. If your gears aren’t shifting properly, call 12th Street Auto Care Center, a local Sioux Falls, SD auto repair shop. Our ASE-certified mechanics can inspect, repair or replace any part of your vehicle. When you need a clutch repair, give us a call.
