These days most cars are hydraulic, so they rely on fluid from the cylinders to actuate the clutch and this can be either happen internally or externally. If there is a leakage in the master or slave cylinder the level of fluid decreases, and proper hydraulic pressure is not possible to operate the clutch.If there is a leakage in the fluid from any cylinder, you might see fluid pooling under your vehicle or you might notice a strange odor as a result of the fluid dripping on the exhaust.

Over a period of time, your flywheel can get overheated, which can cause it to wrap or crackdown. With use your flywheel’s surface becoming uneven, you might experience what is called “clutch Clutter” which are the vibrations you feel as you use your clutch.
