Trouble shifting

Hey y'all, so out of nowhere, my transmission stopped shifting, it's a manual, I replaced the clutch and the clutch master cylinder back in march, when I checked my clutch fluid level it was empty, so I filled it back up, and it is almost impossible to shift, thoughts?

After adding the new brake fluid did you check for air in/bleed the system?

You're due for a good clutch blood-letting.

How do you bleed it? Can the fluid just disappear and I have to refill it?

are you leaking fluid out of the bellhousing? it not check your master cylinder, sometimes they leak at the firewall inside the jeep. easiest way to bleed it is to gravity bleed, just open the bleeder slightly so it drips and keep the master full, after a few minutes close the bleeder, you should have a firm pedal.

How do I tell if it's a slave cylinder? Where is the bleeder though? I do believe we also replaced that when doing the clutch

It would leak out the bell housing. You might have replaced it when you did the clutch then. That's what I did

you just as well find the leak and replace that before you even worry about bleeding it because if you have a leak then bleeding it is a waste of time
