Clutch replacement question?

How does one tell if a new clutch is needed?

There is no noticeable slippage, but there is increasing play in the clutch. I need to rev higher to get the clutch to engage/disengage. I have only put 6K miles on the Box. My other car has 146K miles that I have driven with the original clutch.

2002 30K

If there's no slipping, then just bleed the clutch fluid. It will improve the feel of the pedal and clutch actuation.

I have the same problem, engaging and disengaging gears is very hard on the car hot or cold.

I do not believe is me as I have driven many other cars and I am doing more than fine.

Sometimes when I down**************** from 3rd to 2nd the car shakes a bit while its engaging the new gear...

Dealer has said numerous times "No problems found".

Any ideas???
