2005 Honda Civic: losing power..4th..5th gear..no power with pedal

Resolved Question:

My 2005 Honda Civic is losing power even on slight up hills in 4th and 5th gears. 5th gear gives no power with pedal to the floor unless on level or downhill road. Please tell me I dont need a new transmission!! Just had the car serviced, transmission drained and reserviced, along with a few other minor things..didnt notice the problem until after the service as done.

Ok how many miles on the car?Was it serviced at the dealer?Didi they use Honda fluid?Is the check engine light on?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
The car has only 70,000 miles. It was not serviced at the dealer, but was serviced by a honda certified mechanic. Im not sure whice type of fluid they used but I doubt it was honda specific, and there is no engine light on. When I last had the problem, once I stopped and restarted the car it drove perfect no matter if up or downhill, so its not a constant issue. Very confused

Ok all this is , is the clutch is worn and starting to slip. You will need to replace the clutch pressure plate and bearing to fix this issue about 500 at a shop double at the dealer. Hoped this helped .
