90 yj clutch issue

I have a 90 yj wrangler Sahara. I have recently began having problems with the clutch or transmission. When attempting to put into 1st or Reverse it seems the clutch is not working. I can start it with the transmission in gear and it seems to work fine. Then shifting into gear is not an issue and does fine for a few days then repeats randomly.

Try pumping the pedal a few times before attempting to put the trans into gear.

Sounds to me like the slave cylinder is bleeding off and not allowing you to put it into a gear. Pumping the pedal a few times will build the pressure back up and allow it to work.

If that doesn't work, then its probably time for a new clutch.

Please tell me what this is, and how it works, or happens, something I need to know about.

if u compare new clutch forks to used ones the spring steel the throwout bearing pushes on lose there spring to release clutch.bend rather than effectively release clutch ..but check for leaks and pump clutch peddle to make sure its not a leak or a bad master cylinder
