If I had a description of what the clutch is doing I could tell you what is going on with it. If it is slipping then most of the time the clutch itself is failing. If you are having trouble disengaging the clutch then you may have a clutch master or slave cylinder issue. I would start by checking the fluid in the clutch master cylinder. If it is low then there is a leak that must be fixed. If you need to have this checked out, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the problem with your clutch.
