hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If he clutch was causing the issue then you should notice engine RPM's are higher than hey should be when accelerating with the clutch released, especially in high gears. You would also likely notice a difference in clutch pedal feel and possibly slipping during shifts.

At highway speed is it running the same RPM's as normal; if you attempt to accelerate hard from highway speed without touching the clutch do RPM's rise abnormally?
