Question about Mazda Tribute
When it starts to slip again open up the bleeder screw on the clutch slave cylinder. If the slipping stops then the problem is with the clutch master cylinder. The fluid is not able to return to the reservoir as it expands with heat and is keeping pressure on the clutch. Replacement of the master cylinder would be the best option but first clean out the master cylinder and ensure that the fluid supply hole between the reservoir and cylinder is clear. Renew the piston and rubbers. Check for scoring in the cylinder bore and replace the whole cylinder if scoring is found. If a good cleaning of the master cylinder does not cure the problem a quick-fix on a shoestring budget repair is to fit spacer washers between the firewall and master cylinder or filing down the actuating rod to shorten its length by about 1mm although this is not recommended.
The only other problem I can imagine is that the clutch lever in the transmission is sticking on the guide, although this is highly unlikely.
