The problem should be with the clutch system and the cost would vary depending on what needs to be done.

Is the clutch pedal low? Did you check the clutch fluid level?

Underhood there is a small reservoir at firewall with markings for Max and Min. Remove the cap to check the level. It should be higher than MIN.
