GEARS SEIZING ON HOT DAYS

2003 Mazda 323

Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Mazda 323 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 90000k miles

Hi,
On very hot days (around 30degrees celcius) my first and second gears seize up and I have trouble getting them in gear. My car has 91000km on it and is only six years old. This problem only happens on hot days and has been happening since the car was 4years old. Any suggestions would be great. I have had it looked at and I cant tell whether they have fixed the problem until it is a hot day. This is usually a long time after I have had it looked at.

cheers.

It sounds like it could be something in the hydrolic clutch system. The clutch master or more likely the clutch slave cylinder.
