Turned corner today and jeep would no longer go into gear. Wont go into ANY gear while running but will go through the gears while shut off. Clutch goes to floor with very little resistance. Master Cylinder is FULL with NO leaks. External slave seems fine also and operates normally when depressing the clutch pedal. Any ideas on where I should start?
Have your Wife / Girlfriend / significant other / Neighbor, or anyone for that matter.
Sit in the Vehicle, place it in Gear, (1st) and hold in the Clutch, while that's being
done, see if you can push the Vehicle, make it roll. That will give you a good Clue.

Ok, I'll try the roll test when I get home today. As far as the Master and Slave, I held the slave piston tight while the GF pushed on the clutch slowly. The piston pushed extremely hard so I'm guessing it's operating normal. Also, the Master is full of fluid so I figured those parts were working normal. Thanks...
i think its called a clutch positioning sensor..somethin like that..recognizes when the clutch it engaged and when its not..could be that...well wait..wouldnt start if it was that hmmm
My yj starts without having the clutch in, should I b worried about it it doesn't cause any problems I just make sure its out of gear when I start it when I don't push the clutch in most the time I push it in out of habit.
It is easy to check the clutch disengaging if you can drive it. Just get it in a gear, lower the better, and accelerate, put in the clutch and let off the gas. If it coasts, the clutch is disengaging. If the motor brakes the vehicle, it isn't disengaging.
You can verify the clutch pedal height by where it relieves the braking from the engine.
Well got it apart and it was just the clutch afterall. Clutch disks completely shot. Note to others: When you pull the slave cylinder to see if it's working, if there is fibrous hairs all over it.......you need a new clutch! $155 and 4 hours on your own.
