    Clutch Fluid Replacement & Leak Repairs in Hamilton

    What does clutch fluid do?New clutch fluid Hamilton NZ

    Clutch fluid (also known as hydraulic fluid or brake fluid) is one of the several important fluids needed for your car to function correctly. In a manual transmission, clutch fluid moves between the clutch reservoir and the clutch master cylinder. Its purpose is to create hydraulic pressure, allowing the clutch to change gears properly.

    Over time, your car’s clutch fluid may start to run low. You can check its level by examining the clutch reservoir. Clutch fluid should be topped up once it is reaching a low point. Although topping up the fluid is usually an easy task, a leak is a much more difficult problem to deal with. Leaks can occur in several parts of your car’s clutch system. Common causes of a clutch fluid leak include:

    • A leak in the clutch slave cylinder
