Clutch issue

I am in need of assistance. I have a 93 wrangler with a 4.0 and 5 speed and I am having issues with my clutch. The other day while driving home she would not shift the pedal needs to be completely engaged and if I let off any pressure it will not stay out of gear. The car will shift into gear but it is very hard to put in and out and the other day wouldn't move at all. I was planning on replacing the clutch but I was told I should bleed the system before replacing it. I understand how to bleed it but if anyone has had a similar issue and if someone could explain were and what the slave cylinder is I would appreciate it. Also I'm not a mechanic but I do most of my own work.

On my 95 the slave is on the drivers side bell housing held on with 2 nuts. I had similar issues when I got mine. I picked up a master and slave unit from AutoZone for around 130 bucks and it took all of 20 minutes to install. no bleeding needed it was a complete unit.

unless yours has been changed the 93 slave cylinder is inside the bellhousing. there are two lines coming out that look like brake lines, one goes to the clutch master cylinder the other is the bleeder.

Hope it's ok if I hop on your thread but I'm have that exact same problem on my 95 2.5L and I have to like slam it in gear and I feel no pressure in the clutch

I bought a new master a new slave and clutch and now it's fixed since mine is a internal slave I figured replace it all since I had to take out the trans. Thanks everyone

Yeah I have a similar problem. Installed a new master and slave sealed assembly (pre-bled) and it still will not disengage clutch. What is the logical next step that could be wrong?

Can you see if the piston on the slave cylinder is moving far enough. Have someone push the clutch peddle while you watch.

So I tried the trick of starting the Jeep in gear and then engaging clutch once started. (I saw this on another thread I think.) Supposedly the clutch disk and flywheel can rust together sometimes and it takes the shock of starting it in gear to break them loose. Well it started but once I tried to shift into another gear it still had to much resistance. It almost seems to me that the clutch is not disengaging all the way, like it may be separating a little bit from the flywheel but not enough to completely disengage. I took the slave cylinder back out and it seems to be working properly. Again I replaced the slave and master as one sealed pre-bled unit, so I do not believe it has anything to do with that.

may be your pressure plate springs are worn out and not allowing full engage or disengage just because its new part dont mean its a good part if you bought it local take it back and have them replace it should be under warrenty
