Angry Clutch problem

My problem is when my jeep gets hot, it seems to get harder and harder to shift. Once I turn off the jeep and let it cool, the problem goes away until it gets hot again. I have just replaced my entire clutch system. (Slave, master and internal clutch parts in the transmission. I need help.

Probably not the problem, but how's your clutch fluid level?

Did you change the pilot bearing when you did the clutch?

I have the same issue! I just changed my slave cylinder pressure plate and clutch. And it shifts excellently when cold but after a long time driviing it is difficult to shift and reverse tends to grind.

sounds like possibly bad slaves clutch companys still havent figured out how to build these without the leaks. if it gets a little better with pumping i would bet it is this if not it is probably the pressure plate is old and worn. good luck all
