Pulled up to a stop light and I put the clutch in and my jeep kept pulling. And I couldn't get it out of gear. I turned it off before I rear ended someone. Then I started it back up and it was fine. It happened to me again but this time it was in neutral and it wouldn't go into gear. These two things have happened to me quite a bit lately. Is my clutch going bad?
thanks

Maybe??? Start by doing the simple things to check. First check the fluid in the master cylinder reservior. If it is full then chances are no leak. But then look under the dash at the peddle area for the clutch and see if there has been any leak from the master cylinder plunger where it actuates the piston. If none crawl under and look at the area where there should be an inspection plate on the 2.5 that can be removed and on the I6s you can't remove. Look at the part where the bell housing and the engine mate. You are looking for a fluid leak. If none no issues. You have what sounds like a worn out clutch if there are no leaks. If you find a leak post pics you will get all the answers you need.

Probably the slave cylinder inside I have had three of them go bad. My advise if you replace it, pay the money for a good clutch kit because otherwise you will be ripping the tranny out again the future. Also just go.ahead and put a new clutch and pressure plate In it. It's worth it while you have the tranny out

When my clutch went bad that's exactly what happened. Get a clutch "kit".

Also try and bleed the clutch. Had same issue a few days ago wouldn't go into gear when stopped and and didn't want to come out of gear. Clutch master cyl was emty and then had all kinds of air in line. Is like driving a new car now.
