You sure the transmission is not slipping? If not check the exhaust system for restriction, also check the MAF and TPS sensors-

Could be a plugged catalytic converter or a slipping clutch. Try this: Start the engine and start moving. Between 5-10 MPH, shift to third gear. The engine should bog or die. If not, the clutch is slipping and needs to be replaced.

My test will tell you whether the clutch is bad. Our reference material says you have a hydraulic clutch system, which usually don't require adjustment.
