Clutch problems please help!!

I have a 96 ranger xlt. 4.0l v6 5 speed. I recently got my clutch replaced in March. Within the last week I started to have problems with it. When I accellerate too fast it acts like the clutch is pushed in, the rpm goes up but the truck barely speeds up. When I got home tonight i steped out of my truck and I could smell the clutch had been burning. I'm wondering if it needs to be replaced again or should I try bleeding it.

If anyone has any knowlage on this I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks, Hunter.

clutch is slipping...something might be leaking onto the friction disc...did you have your slave cylinder replaced?

It could have leaked in those few months before you replaced it.
