Gear gets stuck on 2004 Kia Optima

When down shifting the gears get stuck from third to second and second gets stuck totally when coming to a stop. I have had it checked out and nothing seems to be wrong. They mentioned the pressure plate and the clutch is hard. It shofts easy enough, just locks into gear! It releases if I shut the car off. what could it be.

Possibly the clutch isn't disengaging fully check the master cylinder to make sure the fluid is full and that the clutch is working
