Exclamation Manual Trans Problem

So the other day I was driving my 1999 Jeep Wrangler 2.5L home and all of a sudden no noise or anything I shifted into neutral and then couldn't get it back into any gear. I can turn the car off put it into 1st gear start it and move this method works for 1st 2nd and reverse (didnt try the rest obviously) So I though maybe I got an air in my salve cylinder somehow. So I attempted to bleed it but first thing I did the pedal lost all pressure it once had and now goes straight to the floor with almost no hesitation but it was somewhat stiff before attempting to bleed it. I've tried bleeding it 100x!!!

So do you think its the slave cylinder, clutch, throwout bearing or what? The clutch is fairly new though

Most of the jeeps have clutch slaves and masters that are one piece, but that I mean its installed as a unit. Its bleed at the factory. You buy it as a unit and install it the same.

I am talking about TJ's.
I am not sure this is your problem, but if there is a problem with your slave or master it is useless to bleed it.
Some have successfully bleed them with lots of work. You can pump and pump the pedal then hold it and the release the bleeder screw to let air out........ The bleeder screw is threaded into the plastic so it will not take much to strip it.... A new assembly runs around 150 or so.

My slave is separate from my master. Do you think it sounds like the slave could create this problem though?

Your slave and master are connected with the plastic line. They are factory bleed.
I know its hard to believe.... I did not believe it either when I first did it. and yes your slave could be your problem, however I am not sure. It could be something in the trans.....just not sure based on your information that you give. But not much else you could tell me either.....

I wander if you could find a way to move the throw out bearing.... remove the slave and use a long screw driver.......turn on the jeep and push the screw driver into the socket where the slave would have been and see if you can shift the trans into gear.... dont get run over.
I got to go......... off to the movies with my valentine..... Good luck.
