I just took my ute in to get work done on it. They put a new sump on and put a new clutch in and thrust bearing and rear main seal. Just wondering why it now slips out of 5th gear because it didnt before I took it in. They said they put a standard clutch in could that be the problem maybe?

Sounds like the clutch. If you've had any work done the engine it may needa better clutch(weighted).

Take it back to them, it their problem

Sounds clutch problem, try first to adjust it there are two places for adjustment on the clutch pedal and on the gear box or under the car, good luck
