Clutch inconsistency on 96 Acura Integra

Hi, I have a 96 acura integra and my clutch changes pressure with the temperature. Not always, but usually when the weather goes from hot to cool, sometimes even just slightly, my clutch will change from one extreme to the other. It either doesn’t fully engage or it engages too close to the floor with extra play in the pedal. I have had the clutch and the flywheel replaced, but it still did not solve the problem. If I bleed the system it works for a few minutes before returning to the same inconsistency. What do you guys suggest

The problem might be with a worn out clutch master cylinder as this can be effected by temperature. And if it is the master cylinder, it’s a good idea to replace the slave cylinder along with the master cylinder.

Absolutely.
