No clutch pressure... at all.

Went in to work today and everything was working just fine, came out 5 hours later and my clutch was dangling there, I could swing it back and forth with just touching it. Need some help here

If you mean your clutch pedal has no pressure when you push it down then either....

a. you are low on fluid - check the reservoir, bleed your clutch.
b. a seal has failed in one of the cylinders - repair/replace the faulty cylinder.
c. major failure in your clutch assembly.

How old is the hydraulic m/c and s/c?
When was the clutch,press. plate and throw bearing last changed?
How many miles are on the jeep?
Sounds like What Neil said as far as one of the seals has run its course and finally gave in and is allowing fluid to bleed back to the Master.
Easy way to see if this is the case is pop the top on the m/c and have someone push the pedal to the floor and watch for fluid bleeding back into the reservoir.
Look for leaks at the bell housing and also at the firewall inside and out for the beginning signs of a leak.

When I push the pedal there is 0 pressure. It literally swings back and forth when i touch it. Maybe a cable snapped? If there is one?

Yeah my 93 did that last year after sitting all winter....I just cracked the bleeder and slowly pushed the pedal down, when it hit the floor I had someone else tighten the bleeder. After about 3 times she was good to go.

Where is the bleeder? A pciture would help if you have one

And when you say fruitland are you talking about the area behind best buy in moline?

I know 94 was the break year between external and internal slave...mine being a 93 was right above where the clutch line goes into the tranny. It would be on the drivers' side about halfway up on the bellhousing.

Nupe Fruitland missouri...its an actual un-incorporated town lol

There are no cables on our clutch systems, they are all hydraulic..
As stated above ,,, look on the driver side of the bell housing, you will see the line going into the bell housing and another one coming out with a bleeder on the end of it.
Seeing as you have no pressure what so ever at this point then pop the top on the resrv. and have someone watch the fluid level while you loosen the bleeder and have them add fluid as it drains.. This may be a very slow process so be patient. There are vacuum kits for doing this is you want to check the parts house for one being availible.
good luck and hope thats all it is..

It might, but 94 was an odd year....you need to crawl under it and see if its internal or external. If its external you will see the hose going into a black tube about 6 inches long and 1.25 inches around....if its internal, you will see the hose attaching to steel line and going through a rubber grommet.

Check the actual linkage of the pedal? Anything around that firewall . I'd start there.

Good news and bad news. Good news, my dad and i went up there to look at it and it turned out to just be the push rod for the master cylinder. The piece that holds that on is broken but I was able to get it home by sticking the rod in there and keeping a little pressure on it so it didnt fall out.

Bad news, you can't order just that one piece. We had to order a whole new master cylinder setup, which ran 40 bucks. And it won't be here until tomorrow.

I'm still happy tho know I'm not gonna have to spend an arm and a leg to get it fixed
