1999 Subaru Legacy Clutch issue

The car has about 142,000 miles. Is the clutch on this car adjustable? My repair files indicate it was “adjusted” a couple times, $40 each time. Now I think I might need a new one: it seems to be slipping, making some noise in 3rd, and in 5th. Thanks.

What do you mean by “seems” to be slipping? What is it doing?

142k miles on a clutch is very good. I’d not be surprised if it was time to replace it.

It makes a noise, not all that loud, usually. Sounds likes it is whirring. It is a little hard to describe. I guess I should not have used the word slipping.
