Slave cylinder

Help!!!! I have replaced 3 slave cylinders in the past year on my 93 YJ. Is there anything else that could be causing them to go out so often?

Quit getting them from part stores and go to the dealer. I was changing my slave and master out frequently, then I went to the dealer. I got almost a year on this one so far.

LOL...I went to the dealer and they said that they couldn't order it...which did sound like BS. But thanks for the input.

Yours is inside the tranny? I'm pretty sure 93 was the last year they did that on the YJ. That's gotta get expensive. I only say that because mine is getting weak in my 94 and I had to do some research on it.

As far as the part store brands, just get one with a lifetime warranty. I had a ford ranger that dropped one and it lasted me for years until I sold the truck. It was from autozone. I guess its just the luck of the draw.

Thanks...here's hoping that my luck changes...LOL. I did get one with a lifetime warranty so I guess that it will be up to the parts store hoping that they get lucky too, since I am keeping my Jeep.

I have the same issue along with a lot of others on this forum. The solution should be in one of the sticky threads. If there is no solution it should be a recall....come on people share your knowledge....

Saw same problem on another forum yesterday. One of the resident gurus (very knowledgable guy) recommended LUK slaves. Have to do some googling.

I put in a LUK kit 7 months ago...NAPA master cylinder...My pedal goes down 3-4 inches before it starts to disengage the clutch. I reversed bled today...from the bleeder up and still no change. I am now guessing the slave cylinder must have gone south...I can still drive but the pedal almost goes to the floor to shift. I have not lost any fluid in 7 months....just getting too much play in the pedal... I don't get it....someone is making money off of slave cylinders...

I had the same problem with mine not engaging til its on the floor and i changed everything. The master cylinder, and the hydraulic throw out bearing. It still released at the floor. Iwhat i did to fix mine was took off the master cylinder an removed the shaft an put a washer behind it so that it would take up the play to allow it to engage sooner. Now my pedal releases midway like it should. Hope it works for everyone else also.

You have to remove the master cylinder from the fire wall and once its removed on the back with the rod there is a rubber boot, remove the boot and then you will see a c clip. The clip is what holds the rod in. I put a small washer behind the rod the put rod back together.

Just replaced mine, bought the new one from Oreillys and it has already started leeking, not sure how a seal was blown so early.
