probably nothing wrong with the clutch or gear box
most likely that the clutch master cylinder and /or clutch slave cylinder has failed
replace both and bleed the system properly
If it turns out to be the clutch ( which I seriously doubt from your statement) you would need a clutch hydraulic system in good condition to handle the extra pressure for the new clutch pressure plate
Now you have gone off and confused me. Is it RELEASING late or is it ENGAGING late? Releasing at the top of the pedal is releasing early and engaging late. When you replaced your clutch, did you resurface or replace the flywheel? Makes a BIG difference. I usually recommend master cylinder replacement at the same time the clutch, pressure plate, nflywheel, throwout bearing, pilot bushing or bearing and slave cylinder is replaced. That is the only way to guarantee a trouble-free clutch relacement. The original clutches usually last over 100.000 miles (depending on how it is driven) The replacement clutches will not last nearly that long if a COMPLETE job is not done.
I get undersold on my clutch jobs all the time. But I also get many of those customers back when the other shops do a poor job (clutch, pressure plate, and maybe, a slave cylinder) and the car needs a clutch again in just a few months. It has been a LONG time since I have had one of my clutch jobs come back to haunt me. Sometimes you get just what you are willing to pay for.
Sounds like it is a clutch issue. Have the clutch plate checked or check the clutch and friction plates. I know it sounds strange but In reality we always press teh clutch all teh way in to shift. But going from 2nd to third you actually don't have to. Going from 3rd to 4th is even less of a distance. It may be a problem between the clutch and friction plates depending on when you last had them changed and adjusted.
If the bearings were worn out due to high milage, the input shaft will have too much play in it. To replace all of the bearings is a big job, and a lot of shops won't do it. They may have replaced the transmission to save time, as replacing the bearing is very time consuming. So it all stems on what your final cost was.
your probly not puting your clutch in all the way and not shifting fast anoth.Or it was not installed the right way and it was unbalanced so probly need to check it out or go a proformace place and have them look at it.
sounds like a clutch problem, more than likely a worn bush, wich should be found on the clutch cable under the bonnet, it is a rubber ring wich smooths shifts. if the bush seems okay then you more than likely have a 'stick' than a 'slip'. clutch problem. this means your clutch is having trouble disconnecting from the fly wheel. however dont rule out a 'slip'. whatever the problem is i suggest replacing the clutch as it is obviously quite a serious problem.
It will probably be a bad bearing in the tranny. I've had it happen to me a couple of times, and found it easier to just swap the tranny with another good used one, than to tear the thing apart, and try to replace the bearing. The clutch has nothing to do with it popping out of gear. Once the bearing goes, the shaft runs on a bit of an angle, and won't stay in gear.
