    They normally slip more when hot, put the car in 4th at about 20mph and put your foot down on the throttle, if the engine speed rises but the vehicle speed does not, the clutch is gone.

    Welcome by the way.

    Unlikely, but if it was you'd see it on the ground and on the bottom of the bellhousing
