make sure the trans isn't leaking oil before you bother changing the clutch, if the top seal of the trans is slinging oil the clutch will get soaked and cause the slipage, a new clutch will only fix this temporarily

If the tranny is slinging oil the shaft seal is less than 10 bucks and easy to replace with the clutch out the way.
