LOW POWER, CLUTCH ENGAGED

1997 Honda Civic • 296,000 miles

My problem is that when I engage the clutch I get very little power and the engine almost has to red line to accelerate quickly. For some time before this the engine would hesitate as though it wasn't getting fuel but only when the clutch was engaged.

What is my cars problem? I am think its something with the transmission or clutch as it seems as the clutch isn't fully engaging.

Sounds like a clutch slipping to me.
