Yes. It won't hurt the pressure plate, but as the disc gets oil on it slippage will eventually occur as it becomes more contaminated with oil. I'm assuming of course that you're talking about an oil leak from the rear main seal. You may notice clutch chatter at first.

Once you get oil on the clutch disk, it will have to be replaced. It can not be cleaned. I've only had chatter happen when taking off from a stop.

The most likely place for an oil soaked clutch would be from the rear main seal or the input shaft seal on the transmission. Don't waste your time trying to clean your clutch disk, just get your hands on a new one. And also when you have your tranny out, find that leak and fix it! now is a good time to replace rear main seal and/or oil pan gasket, and check the input shaft seal as well.

Yup the clutch will eventually slip, the 5.0L motor is Famous for Rear Main Seal leaks and it can work it's way into the clutch!
Make sure you take care of that problem when the tranny is out!
