    slave cylinder/ poorly adjusted clutch/ fluid are the ideas that first came to mind.

    Yeah, check all the stuff swanny said. If it's none of those things, it could also be a bad pressure plate in your tranny.

    my suggestion is change the fluid first. (pennzoil syncromesh is good or regular 10W-30 motor oil is good). give the oil about 500 miles and if still no difference then do like everyone else said. all of those things can make a difference.
