Question something happend to my clutch while i was stuck..

so me and my friend were out mudding where we usally go. well he tries it with his saumuri and it has 5 inch lift with 31s and he has a snorkel and its about to his hood. i pull him out and he talked me into trying it. well i just crawled into it 4 low and i got stuck so i try going foward then back a couple of times and i yell for him to hurry up and hook up to me cause waters coming in. he finally goes to pull me out and i put it in reverse and my clutch was soft and it wouldnt goin to gear. and i tried to so he got me out and i put it in gear when its off and its like its still in neutral. sorry about the long post. any one think they know whats wrong with it?

Wow, not a long post, but a very difficult one to read. What's going on with your clutch?

So basically what you're saying that you're unable to shift? I'm sorry explain it again specifically what's going on with your clutch/transmission and then we can try and help you better from there.

Most likely the clutch got wet....once it dries out it should be fine. Happened to mine a few times.

sorry. idk i was stuck and it was deep like over half way up my driver door and everything was working fine. but i went to back up and my tires wernt spinning so i went to put it in first and the clutch felt soft and they still wernt spinning so i shut i tryed reverse and it wouldnt go in. so he got me pulled out. and i shut it off and put it in first and it rolled cause i was on a hill it was acting like it was in netrual. and it makes a kinds grinding/ticking noise when the clutch is pushed in. its very strange.

Clutch packs are probably full of mud and will not engage all the way. If you push the clutch in and it has no pressure check the linkage

you also might want to take a look at your diff gear oil. If im not mistaken water can actually get into a diff if completely submerged?

The diffs are vented up higher, the front is vented up by the radiator on the drivers side, the rear is vented up to the gas cap.

You shouldn't use your clutch with the trans submerged. It lets trash get between the clutch disc and the flywheel. That's most likely what has happened to your rig, and only one of the reasons why I don't play in deep mud.

This happened to me before. Just pump the clutch for a minute or two and get the mud out. It will take a few miles to get back to normal.
