check /replace clutch cable or replace master cylinder. If the clutch has not been replaced it may need a clutch kit as the indications are that the pressure plate is weak ( worn clutch plate or from overheated clutch)
a clutch can wear out in a couple hundred miles if not driven properly or abused-at 40,000 miles it is highly possible that the clutch disk is worn to the point that it needs to be replaced. You might be able to get away with driving it but avoid driving it is such a way that it slips-if you can hear the engine running 'ahead' of the car (revving faster than you are moving) get off the gas-especially in higher gears. If you do this until you can get the clutch replaced, you should be able to nurse it along for months.
it could be possible that your clutch is slipping at high revs,depending on its age[wear and tear].does it also slip under normal driving conditions?if so then it needs replacing.to change the discs to ventilated,the brake pads are different and the brake callipers need to be changed..cheers
it is the clutch.
theres nothing else you can do but replace the clutch.
as to the kind of clutch i would use original equipment to replace with.
be very carefull with after market stores.
there are better parts you can use but you must look into other clutchs that have been used and decide for yourself which one is best for you.
just a thinker for you.
if it is a 2000 car and this is its first clutch original equip allready proves to go this long.
dont get a kit that will need to be done again in 10000 miles cause a racer says its an awesome kit.
labor on that is expected to be in the 290 350 range.
parts on this is about 360 490
have all four parts replaced
no questions asked if they cant do the job right then find someone else.
dont short yourself on this job cause you will kick yourself later.
Does it happen after you drive it? make sure the clutch assy. is not getting hot. If it is make sure to remove you foot form the clutch pedal just a little pressure can make the clutch slip. And heat will not let the clutch assy. to work right. If it is not getting hot check the shifting cables and the bushings on the transmission
Best check for this is to get the car around 30mph, put it in top gear, and floor the gas. If the clutch is going to slip, this is when it'll happen. If it slips, you'll need to replace it. If it doesn't, there's likely no issue with the clutch and you'll have to look elsewhere for the problems you're seeing.
