What I usually do is put a bolt about the size of the capacity in the chuck and lock the hex portion in a vise and gradually turn the collar to increase the torque. BE CAREFUL when you start getting to the drill only position because it might want to rip out of your hands.

Firstly please write in english ,is this a new word meachanic like it refers to a female mechanic of something or am i missing the plot ,because what was the original fault by the derivative meaning of the clutch was slipping or thought it was slipping now a proper trained mechanic would know if the clutch was slipping not just thought it might be slipping was the said vehicle test driven by the mechanic in question or just seen you as a cash cow and changed the clutch because its easy to do and a lot of mark up on the clutch unit without the labour charge involved.No take it back to the alledged mechanic and get him/her to sort it as i think the correct diagnosis wasnt applied to start with in this case.Perhaps a coil pack has gone done or a problem with the fuel whos knows without a drive of the vehicle to determine exactly whats wrong

If I can't change into gear do I need a new clutch

Not necessarily.You need to check on the hydraulics first then on the mechanical side.Is the level of fluid correct and are there no leaks or perform a stall test.Put vehicle in gear 5 then leave the pedal if the vehicle stalls then the clutch is ok. if vehicle does not stop then the clutch is worn.

4WD indicator is permanently displayed on the dashboard

This indicates that a problem exists in the control system of the 4WD system. This can be mechanical like a sticking clutch in the transfer case or electrical in nature. You need to have the dealer do special testing to determine what is the actual cause. If you have never changed the fluid in the transfer case do that and see if the light is mechanical in nature from dirty fluid and a sticky cone clutch

The mechanic tells me my clutch is slipping and needs rreplacing 85,000 km. How do I know if this is reliable info? I feel nothing

TEst for slipping clutch is travel about 30 mph. press clutch, shift to 3rd, rev engine pretty high and release clutch, at the time of clutch release, floor throttle. If the engine continues to race, clutch not grabbing porperly, if the clutch works properly, the engine will be slowed and engauged.
You can always get a 2nd opinon from another shop.

the 85,000 mile coutch worn out issue dependes entirely on driving habits of the operators.

My rev counter goes very high but i don't get any speed

It sounds like you have a slipping clutch, and any mechanic should be able to diagnose upon test drive. if there is low brake fluid then it could be a fault with the hydrolics of the clutch system, either clutch master cylinder or concentric slave cylinder.

hope this helps
