Hot weather clutch problems on 99 F350

When the weather gets hot my clutch acts as if it is not completely disengaging. It gets to the point where I have a very hard time getting it into gear when stopped. Dealer replaced the whole clutch at 60,000 when I first had this problem. The next day the problem continued. Since then I have replaced the master and slave cylinder a year ago, now it is happening again. Do others have this much trouble with their clutches?

Re: Hot weather clutch problems on 99 F350

you may have to adjust the rod in the slave cylinder, if its not disengaging properly then you probably need to give yourself more clutch (get a slightly longer rod)
But then again your case may be different to the one i had (hard to get in gear and reverse was even worse, after fitting a longer rod, seemed to fix the problem)
