When driving uphills, at 5th gear, while engine velocity constantly at 2500-3000 rpm, the clutch pedal becomes very stiff. It's even hard to push the clutch to switch gears...
If I switch to 4th or even 3rd gear, then when driving at the same speed as before, the engine velocity is faster, and then, somehow, that clutch stiffness doesn't occur.
Also I checked and there isn't any clutch slipping. I suspect a failure of a clutch pump, either the upper one or the lower one but I don't have the clue why it happens only when driving uphill at 5th gear.

Any ideas? Anybody has had something similar?
