I was wondering if there is a little air in the system, if pumping the pedal helps then try bleeding the clutch.

Other than that it sounds more like a selector problem than a clutch problem, perhaps taking the cables off and greasing them and the tower mechanism will help?

Good luck
ive pumped the clutch a few times and nothing has changed, but the same hot cold issue remains, which has more to do with engine running or changing gear imediatly after a start..killed the engine at lights today to see what was what and had to hold brake while starting to keep van still, engine sounded strained as it was not free totally via clutch..once going i was grand and no issues...have greesed the linkage but not taken the cables yet so will give that a go next
