Check for a deteriorated flexible clutch hydraulic line
 
Check for a bent, broken or cracked clutch release fork
 
Check for a damaged or seized clutch disk or pilot bearing
 
Check for an excessive oil or coolant leak near the clutch assembly
 

If the clutch slips:



Check for a worn clutch disk and/or pressure plate
 
Check for an internally restricted clutch hydraulic line
 
Check for an excessive oil leak near the clutch assembly
 
Check for fluid contamination in the clutch hydraulic system
