Problems shifting the manual transmission have been getting progressively worse. Replaced the clutch and pressure plate 15months ago. Problems continued. Replaced the Master Cylinder 3 months ago. Problems continued. The shop bled the whole system 1 week ago. Problems continued. Shop (claims they) just replaced the master cylinder again (it was under warranty) as well as the slave cylinder. Problems continue. Shifting always seems to be smooth as butter the day I get it back from the shop and then slowly I start having problems getting it in gear as I continue to drive it (by the end of the day). Pumping the clutch seems to help, which makes me believe that the problem is air bubbles in the hydraulic system like the shop says but I'm at a loss. They've bled the system 3 times now and it's not helping.
