DIY 2005 JCW intermittent clutch problem

hi guys I have a 05 JCW with a intermittent clutch problem. Sometimes it wont go into gear but if I let it sit for a few seconds it will go into gear. I think its the slave because I didn't see any leaks from the master cylinder or could it be something else. The car doesn't make any weird noises or rattles and when the gears decide to work it works fine and the clutch too. Please Help Thanks!!!

Couple of things come to mind. First check the hydraulic fluid level, if it's between min and max, it's likely unrelated to the slave/master and your prospects are less optimistic. What's the clutch pedal feel like?

Sounds to me like the clutch is dragging, but the difficulty shifting into gear could also be due to worn synchronizers.

Other issues could be bad pilot bearing, misalignment of transmission housing (i.e. bad motor mount) or bad clutch release mechanism.

I'd take it to a shop for further diagnosis.
