At Junkyard Revival, our focus isn’t always on Toyota’s, Subaru’s, and Volvo’s. You have to remember, our mechanic Tim is a 30 year ASE Certified Master Technician. That means he’s been a Master Tech for 30 years! There’s not too many cars in this nation’s lineup he hasn’t put his hands on.
We rescued this one off the side of the road the other day. The driver had driven the clutch out of existence! When we found it, the clutch emitted a burning smell and went no farther than a few feet.
After taking the clutch apart, we found the problem. The last mechanic who had worked on this car didn’t adjust the throwout bearing correctly before putting the transmission back together.
This will cause a groaning noise to come out of your transmission. It will also destroy your clutch if you choose to ignore it long enough…
Anyways. We fixed her up- way under the price of any other mechanic in Portland. If you’re looking for an affordable, high quality auto repair, give us a call. We’ll treat you right.
Who knows. Maybe you’re car will be the next one we feature on our website!
