Yet another tranny question again........

Hey guys, i was wondering if i could pick your brains for a bit. First off i wanted to say that I've been a quiet leecher on this forum soaking up info after first getting into Jeeps and wanted to thank you all for all the great info you guys provide for us average joes , but now i have a problem and will speak up if i may. I've got a 95 YJ/2.5L running on 33's with around 130k on it. Now when i bought it from what info i could gather was that it had shot syncro rings in it. I had some trouble shifting into 3rd and 4th gears, had to give it a second or so for the rpm to drop down and shift. Now that wasn't too bad i could still drive with what i believe is called double clutching or rev matching but now i think its finally kicked the bucket. So on my way to work i had a heck of a hard time putting it in 1st gear after coming to a stop. I mean it was like trying to push a brick into a sidewalk, no go i had to force it in - in order to get to work in which i cringed everytime i did it. It would go in if i was at a red light and the engine would idle for a bit so thats what further led me to believe that its the rings. But when i came home after work i noticed oil rings on the driveway now i know its not leaking engine oil i changed that a while ago and i know they were not there a few days ago, and from reading on the forum here i hear of slave and master cylinders so i don't know if its a problem with that too. So i was wondering if you guys can point me in the right direction. Do i just need to do a full rebuild on the tranny? Anyone know what the average cost on that is? Can i pull one off a junk yard Jeep? Is this something i can do my self drop the tranny and re-build it? Im not a mechanical engineer but i am pretty mechanically inclined i just don't know where to start, i also have one of those Chilton books don't know if that will help at all and access to a plethora of tools and manual labor. Again, guys if you could let me know where i can start or if i should just take it to a shop and fork over cash to them. I would really appreciate any and all info. And again just wanted to thank everyone for the months of info i've been able to attain from you all.



BTW, its been lifted and after looking at it i have a really good feeling this guy did a half baked job on it and he messed around with the tranny weather he dropped it or just took it on and off. I used to drive my uncles YJ it was a 92/2.5L and with similar mileage and the only mods to that was a 4" body lift and that thing drove like a charm. This on the other hand has a shackle lift i don't know how big though upgraded suspension and some other stuff done to it.

Hopefullly it is just your slave cylinder. On your 95 is should be an 'external' type (meaning on the outside of the bellhousing), and relatively easy to change out.

If it's failing, it won't allow full disengagement of the clutch, making shifts very difficult. Check the fliud level in the master cylinder under your hood right in front of the steering wheel on the firewall. If it's low, fill it up. (you'll need a wrench to move the grill support that's in the way).

Look under your Jeep on the driver's side where the engine attatches to the trans assembly. You will see a thin hydraulic line going to a cylindrical metal unit that bolts to the side of you bellhousing. That's the slave cylinder. If your leak is coming from there, it;'s pretty easy to remove & replace w/ simple hand tools.

It was my master, changed both though. After changing it - it wouldn't start so naturally i panicked but then i just unhooked the battery and "reset it" then she fired up and runs great. The grinding sounds it made which i thought were the syncros even got alot better i think it wasn't depressing the clutch all the way so it grinded when i put it in gear. All in all im a happy Jeeper. Thanks for the help Beachcruiser, owe you a beer.
