if it's a manual and slipping then it is the clutch

Yea and more the hotter it gets... Sounds like a weak pressure plate which is part of the clutch assemble and holds the clutch up aginst the flywheel... Hotter it get the weaker it is so more slipping.... New clutch is less than $150.00

Because when you push the clutch in you reset the pressure plate each time....
