Clutch Repair

The clutch is a crucial component in manual transmission vehicles, serving as the bridge between the engine and transmission. When it functions properly, shifting gears is a smooth, seamless experience. However, like any mechanical part, the clutch can wear out or break down over time. We specialize in diagnosing and fixing minor clutch problems to get you back on the road safely.

When to Consider Clutch Repair

Is your car’s clutch slipping, sticking, or making unusual noises? These are common signs of clutch issues that should be promptly addressed. Our expert Car Care technicians are here to assess and repair any clutch-related concerns you may have.

Common Clutch Problems

  • Slipping Clutch: You may notice that the engine revs high but the car doesn’t accelerate proportionally.
  • Stiff Clutch Pedal: A clutch pedal that’s hard to press can signal a problem in the hydraulic system.
  • Noisy Clutch: Strange noises when the clutch is engaged or disengaged could mean a variety of issues.
  • Clutch Drag: Difficulty in changing gears, usually because the clutch isn’t fully disengaging.

Great family owned business, run a cool father and son duo. I’ve been taking my cars here for over a decade.

I’ve come across 2 types of mechanics over the years: 1) fixes what needs fixing, checks everthing else out, tells the customer what to keep an eye on/expect in the future. 2) fixes what needs fixing and EVERYTHING else that it touches.

PB Foreign and Domestic is type 1) – straightforward, steady, and honest – which is why I keep coming back and I suspect it’s why the same guys have been working there for forever too.

I truly feel like I’m getting the service that’s required and not being upsold on things I don’t need. The price is always better than anywhere else I’ve looked and repairs done timely. They always call if the estimate given to me ends up being different, sometimes it’s lower and if it’s higher they clearly explain why and if it’s absolutely necessary or a recommendation. I trust them.

If you want a local independent family owned car mechanic that is honest, trustworthy, reasonably priced, and not trying to nickel & dime you these are your guys! Aaron is especially a pleasure to deal with. He went above and beyond at my last oil change to help me on a few things that would have taken tons of time to figure out on my own, you can tell he enjoys helping people (when they aren’t too busy) and is just a personable good natured guy which is so great to have in a car mechanic. Couldn’t recommend them enough!

We really love PB Foreign and Domestic! They have served us well for years on 3 vehicles and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend over dealership or other local facilities. They don’t try to upsell you on things you do not need. Super friendly and can usually get you in within a day or two. It is best to call ahead and make an appointment.

Porsche Cayman – my car was overheating so I had my car towed to PB Foreign and Domestic Car Repair. The team was able to repair my car ( I needed a new radiator and water pump) and they gave me very fair pricing. I will definitely come back for my preventitive maintenance.
