1993 Wrangler leaking clutch system

Hello - I own a Jeep Wrangler 1993. The car has not been used often - the mileage is now 70K.

I have owned several Wranglers and never experienced problem with the clutch. Last year the clutch pedal dropped to the floor. I went to a repair shop - I paid for new master cylinder, new slave cylinder and new clutch pads. They did not present the used parts and I did not ask for them. Immediately the clutch pedal was soft. They adjusted and it seemed OK - not perfect.

Now one year later the pedal dropped again to the floor. I went to a different shop - which I know and I trust - they changed the master cylinder and the pedal pressure returned to normal.

Now - 5 weeks later there pedal has dropped again. I checked the master cylinder and it was empty -- there is no fluid in the car near the pedal -- no fluid on the line to the transmission and no fluid on the transmission case.
I added fluid and the transmission is now working normally.

Before I pay to open the transmission -- do you have a suggestion? Why and where is the fluid
escaping to?

Check inside the cabin at the fire wall behind the clutch master cylinder. I have had this happen before. I believe yours is an external slave cylinder so you would know if that was bad - big puddle.

Good luck. I know all too well what a PITA this prob can be

If it is a 93 then it has an AX15. They have an internal slave cyl. You will have to take trans apart to check it. That could be where your fluid is going.

Leaking clutch hydraulic system

I looked at the bell housing -- there was no sign of a leak -
Can a slave cylinder leak and still function?
Can the clutch pads absorb the fluid -- and prevent the leak form appearing?
