Does my celica have a problem

I was driving with two friends in the car and i turn on to this steep hill so as i shift from 1st to 2nd and the car starts to struggle so I shift into 1st and still the car would struggle and it died. So I start it up again take off and it feels like the clutch was slipping because i had to give it a lot of gas before it finally grabbed. Has anyone had this problem?

Were you riding the clutch?
My celica has no problems going up steep hills..(I even take it offroading once and a while, you should see the steep hills I encounter)
How many miles on your celica?
Aftermarket clutch? Stock clutch?
Does the rpms go up but the car barely moves when you try to accelerate?

How fat are your friends??? J/p, well I could see it happening if you were going like 3 or 4MPH up a really steep incline with 3 people in the car I think if your car had a bit of momentum when starting it wouldn't be a problem. There are a few streets in Ventura CA that seemed to be at least 45 degree inclines and I make it up with no problems at all, I just make sure I'm going at least 10MPH when starting.

nah I started out normally but after it felt like the clutch was slipping. I only have 5900 miles on my car still on stock clutch, and my two buddies were a bit heavy :D
