1992 Isuzu Rodeo Clutch Problem

92 Isuzu Rodeo 4x4
I just had the clutch replaced on my 92 Isuzu Rodeo (4X4, 3.1L, Manual Transmission). Now, when the vehicle is cold I can't get it into reverse, unless I turn the engine off and then shift gears.
It then shifts rough until the engine warms up. The colder it is outside the longer it takes for the transmission to operate normally. My first guess was that it is some kind of hydraulic issue. So I had the fluid changed and also had the master cylinder and the slave cylinder replaced. I still have the same exact problems.
I would like to know if it could be air getting into the line? And if yes what would the temperature have to do with that? If you have An Isuzu Rodeo with a manual transmission I would like to hear about any problems you had with your transmission even if it's different then mine. You know how what goes wrong with one rodeo will usually happen to other rodeo's of about the same year! If you have any ideas I am open minded?
