Hi. It does sound like you might be having hydraulic issues. There are two components to this. The clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder. The clutch master cylinder is not normally replaced during a clutch job, but the slave should be. On your vehicle, removal of the transmission is necessary. Not replacing it during the clutch job was not the best decision in your case as you might have to pay most of the labor amount again to have it replaced.
