Shift into any forward gear with the car turned off. Notice the pressure required to engage the gear, along with the sound it makes. Put the shifter in neutral. Push the clutch in and start the car, keeping the clutch held in. Without engaging the clutch (keep it held down) shift into the same gear you just engaged when you had the car off. If it is difficult to engage, makes a grind, or you can feel significant resistance, the clutch is dragging.
