Clutch/Transmission Problem

Hello all. Got a strange problem I cannot seem to figure out. Had the engine re done which entailed dropping the transmission and clutch. While out I had the clutch replaced. When I first got the car back the thing shifted so easily - like a dream.

After a couple of weeks it felt very stiff and notchy. I took it back assuming so leaking of clutch/transmission fluid but the mechanic said everything looked good. What else could it be? It was so smooth now it's gone. When the tranny was out I did see a white/greasy looking substance all over the place which seemed odd but he cleaned it up before assembling.

Thoughts?

Have you checked the fluid level in the gearbox. Might as refill it with some REDLINE MTL. DOnt trust your mechanic

Could also be a leaky master cylinder. I think they all leak at one point or another.

Those clutches aren't easy to bleed out properly. On several occasions I have seen the master and slave go out after removal and reinstall of tranny. If you replace one, do the other!!!

Where does the clutch catch??? If the clutch ingages low on the pedal motion then you can adjust the clutch pedal rod that is attached to the clutch master cylinder

Problem is not with the clutch engagment. I should have been clearer. The action of moving the shifter through the gears is what is notchy and kinda rough. Right after clutch/tranny install it was very easy to slide into gear and move around. Now not so much. It's almost like it was from being drowed in in some super slick gear lube to shifting without none. The wrench cheched the levels and they were fine.
