YJ clutch--adjustable?

I have a '92 YJ 4.0 5 speed. Is the clutch adjustable on these YJs? Sometimes it seems like it is not fully disengaging even though I have the pedal to the floor. When I put the Jeep in reverse you hear the gears grinding a little then it'll go into reverse. When the Jeep heats up and has been running around town for a little while, this reverse problem gets worse. I have to pull the reverse back until I hear the gears grind to a stop, then I can pop it in reverse.

Thanks,
YJman

the first thing you guys need to replace is the master cylinder .
the tend to get weak after about 10 years and do not disengage the clutch
far enough for smooth shifting.
i found a guy on line who sell them for 40 bucks new.
half the price of the auto parts store.
cross your fingers and hope this 30 minute easy fix takes care of the issue.
give me a call if you have any questions.

also a power bleeder 30 bucks is a very useful tool to own.

This doesn't sound good..

Can you PM the guy online who sells them for 40 bucks?

RSC17, I was thinking it was the clutch slave cylinder as well..

fill your reservoirs up and pump hell out of the clutch pedal,then take a peek under the jeep to see if fluid is leaking,if it is ,its the slave cylinder.that was my experience.

x2

but is there more than one reservoir? where are they located? the one by the firewall was almost bone dry. filled it up, pumped the clutch, and it's back working.

Sounds like what i just went through... reservoir was a bit low, then while out on the freeway, i just lost the clutch all together... ball shattered and the fork went thru the pressure plate at about 65 MPH while downshifting... man was that fun....

I just replaced my master cylinder last night - $47 at Advance Auto Parts. Piece of cake. After the parts were in, I pumped the clutch about 200 times and watched the air bubbles come up. Drove 300 miles today, in all sorts of traffic with no problems...

Will the master cylinder in that link fit a '92 wrangler? It says '88-'90 but I thought they'd fit the '92 as well.
