This is my first post, so HEY EVERYBODY! I really wish it wouldnt be under these circumstances, but heres the deal:
I was driving to class (college) and I was having trouble shifting into first or second gear from neutral (MANUAL TRANSMISSION). Within maybe 3 red lights, it was impossible to shift it out of neutral. I managed to get it into a parking lot and had it towed back to my house.
I'm just wondering if anyone had any ideas what it could be.
I have a good amount of clutch fluid.
My clutch master cylinder isn't leaking (from what i can see).
I didn't hear any popping or snapping sounds from the clutch.
It doesnt make any out of the norm sounds when trying to shift or pushing the clutch down.
My clutch pedal seems to be about the same as it was when it was working.
I CAN shift into first and second when the car is off, but it will lurch forward when I try to start it, as if I didnt have my clutch engaged at all.
When time permits my father and I are going to replace the clutch master cylinder, as the first step before we tear the entire transmission and clutch out (no garage!!!
Any idea's as to what it could be would really really help. I'm fairly new to jeeps and so far love it, and I don't want to have to resort to driving my moms car (a cherokee lol) back and forth to school for longer than I have to.
(btw, the jeep in question is a '92 wrangler 4.0L)
