Clutch and engine acting weird

alright first off my clutch i will fully let go of it and it still is engages for like 5 seconds or more in every gear. Now for the engine i can be going 35 MPH in 5th gear and step on the gas and the engine will start to rev up to my redline. It doesnt go up as fast as when i do it in neutral though. So theres my problems any assitance or advice would be greatly appreciated.

CHRIS

From the revving in 5th when your cruising at 35mph, it sounds like your clutch is a goner (Slipping). It sounds like it needs to be replaced.
