Clutch Repair & Service

Replacing or repairing the clutch on a semi or heavy-duty truck involves a complex process that should only be done by experienced professionals. 

Performing this repair requires specialized tools and knowledge of the intricate mechanisms of the vehicle. 

The clutch assembly includes several essential parts that work together to transmit power from the engine to the transmission. 

These include the clutch pressure plate, disc, release bearing, and flywheel. 

A damaged clutch can cause several problems, including:

  • Damaged gears
  • Engine stalling
  • A grinding noise
  • Poor clutch pedal response

Neglecting to repair or replace the clutch assembly can lead to even more significant issues, such as internal transmission damage and an expensive repair bill. 

Therefore, it’s crucial to seek professional help at Wayne Truck & Trailer when it comes to repairing or replacing the clutch of a semi or heavy-duty truck.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Us

I had a roadside breakdown on I-70 due to a coolant fitting failure. They were easy to work with and the tech had made this same repair previously on other trucks. The fitting is one that connects the engine head to heater core. They had to stop by a Paccar dealership (in Dayton?) to get the part and then make the roadside repair. They gave me a price estimate before heading my way and the final bill was somewhat less since I didn’t need as much coolant as estimated. Easy to work with, I would recommend them and use them again myself – if needed. My only complaint was that they didn’t open until 8a. I would’ve given 5 stars if they could have rolled at 6a. The parts dept at Paccar opened at 7a so it wasn’t a huge impact on the schedule.

I had a bad miss on my Volvo VN with a Volvo D13 engine in it. They had the software to diagnose the problem and were able to replace the bad injector. I was back on the road the same day. Last time I had this problem I took it to a Volvo dealer, and they took a week before e they would even look at it.

Truck Service

My family and I have been traveling for the past 3 weeks in the RV. We have had terrible luck up until this point with our RV. Needless to say, many tows and service repair work. This business has gone above and beyond. They were completely understand, sympathetic, and willing to help until they figured out what the problem was! We had our dogs, kids, cat, and extended family there with us all day. There were no problems with that. We felt comfortable and at ease here! I would highly recommend this shop to anyone. The quality, communication, and price was just what we needed! Thank you to all who helped!

After looking around, Wayne Truck & Trailer came through!! Cody really took care of our situation, and the company was well pleased.

Thank You, Cody and Wayne Truck & Trailer, for everything. Please keep up the great work.

Our motorhome broke down in Greenville, OH and their techs spent a few hours fixing it. They were pleasant to deal with and got us back on the road as quickly as they could.

“My company travels all over the US with trucks and enclosed trailers. We had two equalizer straps tear off of the bolt/leaf spring on one side. Google suggested Wayne Track and Trailer nearby. Great choice! Norm was excellent at the front desk and the guys in the shop were very helpful and knowledgeable. They were able to get us repaired and back on the road in a just a couple of hours. Highly recommended!”
