Clutch Problem!!! Help Please!!!

I have a '95 Wrangler, 4-cylinder. I replaced the Master Cylinder and the Slave Cylinder... Jeep will run for about 2 days and then clutch feels "spongy, loose" and then clutch won't engage.
What could the problem be?

Check the clutch cable.... Might be old and stretched out

Welcome to the forum. You would do better to post this in the section of YJ's and the tech area. You will get answers there.

Well I have a few questions for you, Did you bleed the clutch system after making these changes? Are you losing any fluid? If you have done these things make sure your bleeder screws are tight.

Did you replace them with oem parts or aftermarket parts from local parts house?
Did you replace them with a prefilled kit or individually?
Aftermarket kits like from AZ are a crap shoot as to whether they will last a day or a year. I bought my 94 from the PO who just had everything clutch related replaced and it was still grinding in 1st and reverse and released at the top of the pedal.
I replaced the m/c and s/c with a prefilled,plug-n-play, kit from rockauto and now it catches about 2-3" off the floor and nomore grinding.
Just my .0002 cents.. hth

To Dons_Jeep, yes I did bleed quite a few times, no, not losing fluid. To UABYJ94, yes the parts were bought at a local parts store, AZ to be exact. Today I finally broke down and called my regular mechanic and he said that its more than likely that one of the parts are defective and is letting air in the line. So I gotta shell out some bucks for my mechanic, but I will let you all know what the results are ... Thanx for the tips, they were very helpful!!!

I wasn't going to respond to logirls post but I can't go on without knowing if she was being sarcastic or she really thinks there are cables on the YJ clutch.

To uabyj94... I was being sarcastic and it probably wasn't the place to do it when someone was asking for help...I found myself in auto zone picking up some oil for my mom and some guy asked a similar question and an employee reponded with that answer...cuz it happens to his mustang all the time....unbelievable!
