I need some help here and hoping you guys will be able to enlighten me.

I have a 2006 Kia Rio5 that has 105K miles on it. I replaced the clutch because the throw out bearing was sqawking horribly. Since getting it back together, it ran for a couple of days fine but now the clutch is slipping again. I am dumbfounded, apparently this year model has a hydraulic clutch so I am not sure what is causing the slippage. Now I am wondering if I should have replaced the flywheel when I had it all torn apart.

Any thoughts? Could it be the flywheel causing this issue?

Thanks,
Bryan

I doubt it, a flywheel will just cause jerking when you let out the clutch. Had the misfortune of skipping turning one once. It felt smooth, but 850 miles to seat the new clutch on it, whiplash jerking till then starting out. My rio5 hasn't started slipping yet, so haven't been inside it. 105K so hopefully it will be soon.
