Of course we didn't hear from him like you did, usually the mech will write recommended additional repairs needed on the work order. Did he do this? Reason I'm asking is *maybe* he said that the clutch *would* start to slip. You can usually tell how much clutch disk is left (somewhat like how much brake pad is left) by visual inspection at the slave (especially if it's the old style) and/or how far the clutch pedal is off the floor at the engagement point for the clutch. The pedal height and engagement point are not adjustable, so the farther away from the floor the less disk thickness left. It will usually work fine until is just *that* much too thin. Then it will slip under load or not catch well when you are doing a high rpm launch. Of course the more it slips the faster it wears and..... the more it slips... and... you get the point
Just a thought?
How was the rest of the work he did?
