Clutch or Tranny

What are some symptoms of the clutch, something is going on in my car and i do not know how to diagnose it.

1. The engine is getting louder and there is some clanking noise going on like a grinding bearing(seems only after it is heating up).

2. Pulling out of first seems like it is going to stall almost every time, unless i give it a lot of gas.

3. Changing gears is pretty annoying, its hard to shift. 2nd grinds a lot

4. Noticed something new the other day, when i was driving in reverse i let go of the acceleration and it made a high screaming sound, and it felt like i downshifted but dropped the clutch, but i was still obviously going in reverse.

5. Sometimes when driving even after i have shifted in to gear. if i accelerate later it feels like a automatic transmission shifting and kicks pretty hard.

have 60k miles on it. year 1998

Sounds like clutch plate or thrust racer has gone, which you will only find out by dropping the box, if these are ok on inspection, then its the box

thx for the reply, i was also talking to my friend and he might have thought that it could be an o2 sensor, that might explain the very harsh start like it wants to stall out of first, could be some bad fuel mix perhaps.

I tried to get a code readout but turning the ignition up to right before the car starts and pushing the gas 5 times does not seem to work, is there a fuse that might be missing???
