1993 Wrangler clutch pedal often soft

Hello I have a 1993 Wrangler - 4 cylinder - the master cylinder is new and the fluid level is OK in the master cylinder. The fluid is not leaking.
During the past few weeks, when first starting the Jeep, the clutch pedal has been very low and then after driving about ten minutes the clutch pedal returns to full height and full pressure.
Any suggestions ?

Also, when changing from first to second gear, I have to shift slowly or the
transmission grinds. I have to move completely into second gear before releasing the clutch.

Thanks

Sounds like you need to bleed the system. It sounds like the air in the fluid is warming up and expanding within the fluid causing the pedal to pump up about not really helping with the shifting.

I'd like to know how to bleed the clutch. I just replaced the clutch today and am looking for info on how to adjust the pedal and bleed the clutch. If anyone knows of any links please let me know...

There is no adjustment for the pedal, the fluid is what keeps it firm. There is another thread here on clutch bleeding...

I just did mine and there was a bunch of black crap in the line for the clutch. I had to back bleed mine then bleed it regular to work all the crap out of the line. Easy fix
