I guess its time for a new clutch plate, best would be to fit in the pro-kit (clutch pressure plate, clutch plate and release bearing).

Mahindra 6500 will not take off hardly in high gear. In low gear it works fine until going up a steep hill. Smells a little like burning plastic when this happens. Is ther an adjustment.

From your description it would seem the clutch friction material is worn out and needs replacing, though it is possible the clutch spring (diaphragm) has become weak.

There might be an adjustment but I have no knowledge of that model. Mechanically (cable) operated clutches mostly have an adjustment to maintain a small amount of clearance (free play) in the pedal operation and also a very few of the older hydraulically operated systems but mostly these are self-adjusting.

A healthy clutch is designed to transmit the full engine torque with a good margin extra, though it must be remembered even a healthy clutch when it is overheated can begin to slip. As a clutch wears and becomes less efficient it is important to be considerate to it and keep it cool by driving in a manner that is less stressful for it and by not allowing it to slip.

If the clutch is not self-adjusting, adjustment should be attended to during routine maintenance or when needed. Even if your car has an adjustment I think it is unlikely to help...

It could be any one of several things but most likely it is the smell of an overheated or slipping clutch.

Hi. My clutch slips when standing still at a steep hill and you can hear the screetching sound. Help needed.

oil on clutch plate or disc is at wear limit, either way you need a new clutch. Check free play adjustment of cluth pedal, too tight will increase slippage

Are you driving an automatic? It sounds like the clutch plates inside your transmission may be slipping. Yes, automatics have small clutch plates between each gear whereas a standard has one big clutch plate

I drive a manual transmission 2000 Outback. I was stopped on a steep hill, and when I started trying to go, my RPMs went up to 5000 and I couldn't go anywhere, so I stopped trying and saw some light grey...

From your description, it does sound like the clutch has again failed.
You can still safely drive the car, provided you avoid heavy acceleration and don't negotiate steep inclines.
However, the clutch slip will only get worse, so get it fixed ASAP.
If the new clutch has failed after only 12 months service, perhaps your clutch pressure plate should also be replaced.
Note that operator poor clutch technique (excessive slippage during starts) will also cause early clutch failure.
