1991 Clutch problem

I went to drive my jeep the other day and the clutch would not disengage. It worked one day and did not the next. Clutch pedal feels OK but it doesn't disengage the clutch at all. I don't see any fluid leaking. Anyone see this problem before or have any ideas?

1) check your fluid level.
2) bleed slave cylinder,just like bleeding a brake system but smaller and easier.

If this does not do it,sounds like you need a new slave cylinder.
Pretty common,they do not last forever.

like scrambler says check and bleed fluid if low. if bleeds good and pedal feels good but doesnt release still i would suspect warped disc or cracked pressure plate. Keep in mind its how clutch feels. if slave or master is done pedal will have a lower contact area or freeplay or even go to the floor easily. only you know what it felt like before.

One more thing to consider

Fluid isn't low and the pedal feels OK. One more piece of the puzzle - I did drive it in 2 feet of water the last time out.
