Re: [DML] transmission issue

The first thing to try is bleeding your clutch.  Any air in the line can 
expand when heated and prevent the clutch from disengaging
fully.  If that doesn't work, my guess is that you have an 
original plastic clutch line.  If so, this should be replaced with
a braided hose.  Any of the regular vendors should have one.
