Default Clutch - Transmission Problem

I have a 2001 Ranger 4x2 XLT, 2.5 engine, 5 speed manual transmission.

Just had a new clutch, pressure plate and slave cyclinder installed. Now I have difficulty shifting gears.

It shifts perfect when the engine is off.
It shifts perfect when the engine idles.
It down shifts perfect.

However, when taking off, I have difficulty shifting to second, third and fourth gear. I have to work to get it in gear. I found that when shifting, if I let the RPMs go down, it will go into gear quite easily.

I took it back to the shop that installed the clutch. They bled the system again but to no avail. The mechanic said the synchronizers in the transmission are bad. However, there was no shifting problem before the clutch was changed. I would appreciate any suggestions anyone may have.

Sounds like they bent the forks in the pressure plate. I would take it back and tell them that the synchro's weren't bad when the clutch was bad, how did they magically go bad once they put a new clutch in?

Default Got it

After researching this hydraulic system on the clutch, I found out that the master cylinder is in at at angle air can get trapped if it is not also bled. I bled the master cylinder along with the rest of the clutch hydraulic system. It now shifts great.
