    +1 ^ ...when your going up a hill get your car into a gear and give it a shot of the gas..If the RPM's rise and your car doesn't physically accelerate than chances are your clutch is beginning to slip. You can also have clutch chatter or grabbing issues when the clutch is on its way out, but the most common is slippage..

    My clutch slips only when I floor it in 4th and 5th gear when I'm crusing at a normal speed. If I run through the gears aggressivley I dont notice any slipping... Weird

    Slips under load. Few hundred miles or less and 3rd and 2nd will start to slip. try 3rd gear and about 3k rpm... floor it and see what happens. I had the same prob.

    I just got a new clutch installed ACT modified street kit and i love it 630 miles and i'm a lil scared to push it, don't think i will tho
