How Do Clutches Work?
Clutches in vehicles are used to engage the flywheel. When engaged, the flywheel enables the transmission to be shifted from one gear to another.

Would you like to know what is wrong with Jim and Sons? Absolutely nothing!
"Would you like to know what is wrong with Jim and Sons? Absolutely nothing! For the past two weeks I have had a horrible squealing noise coming from underneath my truck. A friend looked at it, told me it was the u-joints and offered to fix it for me. While I did appreciate his generosity, the squealing continued after his attempt. I then took my truck to a large chain auto service center to get their opinion and an estimate. Their diagnosis was also the u-joints and their estimate was through the roof. I asked another friend if he knew of an honest affordable place that I could take my vehicle. Before I could finish asking he blurted out "Jim and Sons". I set up an appointment to have my truck looked at the next day. Beverly and Max were two people that I dealt with at Jim and Sons. I do not think I have ever had a more pleasant experience dealing with anyone not only in an Auto shop but also in any service industry as I had with those two. My truck was dropped off the following day. Beverly was nice enough to drive me back to work within minutes. A few hours later Max called to let me know that my truck was ready. Not only did they save me well over $200.00, they also fixed the u-joint that my friend installed incorrectly.I would recommend Jim and Sons in a heartbeat to anyone. Do yourself a favor and go see them. You will not regret it."
I would recommend Jim & Sons to anyone, and I told my mechanic that he should feel confident doing the same.
"The fact that Jim & Sons is a family business was clear throughout my experience: everyone was friendly, professional, straightforward, and willing to work with my schedule. My transmission was rebuilt within the estimated cost and time frame that were given after the assessment, and Max even went above and beyond by spending a significant part of a day fixing a problem with the car stereo code that was a flaw of the car, not the service. I would recommend Jim & Sons to anyone, and I told my mechanic that he should feel confident doing the same. "
I cannot express enough of my gratitude to these people who not only treated me fairly, efficiently and professionally but with more kindness than I have ever experienced from total strangers who cared enough to make my life safe.
"I cannot say enough good things about Jim & Sons Transmission Specialist! I got in my car to go to work and my gear shift was a wet noodle. I stood in my drive in total dismay. I called Jim and Sons to ask for help. Within 20 minutes, Beverly had a tow truck in my driveway and to top that off he was not only professional but kind. That was my first indication that I had called the right person. After I got to work Max called to give me an update. The next morning, I received another call from Max giving me the morning update and expense report. By the afternoon I got a call saying my car was ready for pick up. I am a senior citizen. I cannot express enough of my gratitude to these people who not only treated me fairly, efficiently and professionally but with more kindness than I have ever experienced from total strangers who cared enough to make my life safe. God answered my prayers...Jim & Son cares for you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. B.J. Webb Stow, Ohio"
I will say I am amazed at the accurate diagnostics along staying true to the estimates!
"My 4 wheel drive hasn't worked in about 3 years. Finally having put the funds together to even think about getting it looked at, I sought out a garage. The important aspect was getting a garage to diagnose the problem correctly, I didn't want someone just throwing parts at it, hoping to fix the problem. Another garage recommended Jim & Sons. Dan diagnosed 2 different problems, with a cost factor for each. I will say I am amazed at the accurate diagnostics along staying true to the estimates! To further better the experience at Jim & Sons, the problems were fixed 2 days prior than expected. Although I only got to try out the 4 wheel drive in the snow for the last big snow we had, I'm impressed. Jim & Sons doesn't only fix transmissions, but axles & computer related problems as well. Thank you Dan & Amanda for keeping me updated with the expected return of my vehicle depending on availability of the parts you had to order. I was surprised they had rental vehicles at a reasonable rate. They even offered a ride back home after I dropped off my vehicle! I highly recommend Jim & Sons. "
Anybody EVER needing transmission service, you need only to go to Jim and Sons in Akron or Canton , you will never regret it!
"Hi! My name is Dean Stevens, and I cant tell you how pleased I am with Jim and Sons Transmission! I have had my wifes Beetle to the dealer, the biggest and most well known transmission shop in the youngstown area, and twice to a foreign car shop in streetsboro! After 8 months of people telling us nothing was wrong( car slamming into gears up and downshifting) we got lucky and found jim and sons! No I did not need a new transmission like i was told by a vw guru, i just needed a valvebody in which was very reasonable! Jim and sons did their magic to our Bug and now it is perfect( no more banging and slamming) Anybody EVER needing transmission service, you need only to go to Jim and Sons in Akron or Canton , you will never regret it!"
Truly a repair shop that can be TRUSTED
"Truly a repair shop that can be TRUSTED....I took my mother's 2007 Mercury Mountaineer there after a local dealership quoted a $4,500 repair for the transmission, Jim and Sons completed the work for less than $2,300. I then decided to take my 2008 GMC 2500HD there after another dealership recommended a $2,000 repair for a re-manufactured transfer case, Max assured me he would check it out completely, after keeping me informed throughout the entire process he and his brother found some loose wire connections, fixed those and did a complete service on the transfer case ALL for less than $300.00. Truck drives fine again. They have definitely earned my trust from here on out. I cannot say enough for them and the other staff. Please don't hesitate to take your vehicle there.Thanks again,Tom Adamson"
I recommend them. It’s very hard to find good service these days!
"Took my 1991 Chevy Truck to Jim and Son’s transmission in North Canton. The staff was Very friendly,courteous, and truly cared. Wayne took care of my vehicle and kept me updated the whole time. He went above and beyond, fabricate a system for my gas tank to hold in place! I recommend them. It’s very hard to find good service these days!"
Everyone at the business was very professional and informative. They took care of us quickly and gave us an analysis that was very helpful.

Honest, professional, friendly people with a long-standing reputation.
"Took our 04 Trailblazer with a 4WD problem to Jim's based on our regular mechanic's recommendation. Very glad we did! Max called me with a preliminary diagnosis on the problem and fortunately it didn't involve any new parts or expensive labor costs. In fact, Max gave me some tips to avoid having it reoccur. Honest, professional, friendly people with a long-standing reputation."
