More info needed. Have you serviced the clutch system? Start with bleeding the system. If that doesn't solve the problem clean and rebuild the slave and master cylinder. Clutch system should be serviced on a regular basis just like the brakes.

When you say you used full synthetic instead of DOT4 - By this are you meaning you put DOT5 in your clutch system?
