Let me start this by saying that I drive a 94 Accord with a manual transmission, and it has taught several people how to drive stick on it. Lately I have noticed that the clutch seems looser, and there are a few other minor problems. For instance, the rev limiter sometimes blocks when it should not, somedays the car seems jerkier when shifting, and I don't think I am shifting any differently, etc. As far as I know the car has never had any transmission work done. How can I tell if there is something really wrong with the transmission, and is it worth it to fix it? Also, can I do anything to tighten the clutch?
No, check engine light is not on. ABS light is, but thats a recurring problem.

Also I should note that the rev limiter problem is only occaisionally, not consistent.
