What happens when our brain stops working? Our heart is still beating, so we are still alive but we can’t do anything or go anywhere. All other parts don’t move or react. That phase is called a coma. In a similar fashion, our vehicle suffers from a coma when the clutch wire breaks. Without a clutch, the vehicle is in the same phase where an engine is thumping but you can’t take it anywhere, you are not able to move.
