Clutch problem

94 yj, 4 cyl, 5 speed. If I crank it with the tranny in gear, you can drive and shift and down shift with no problem. If I stop and go to neutral, I can not get in gear. I have to switch off the jeep...put it in gear ...crank it and then go. I have plenty of fluid in the reservoir....what's your thoughts?

1994 should be external slave.

Check the connections and what linkage you can see.
If everything looks good, I would buy a pre-bled master/slave setup. There is the possibility you have a problem inside the bellhousing such as a worn clutch fork but the most likely culprit is your master cylinder. Second most likely culprit is your slave cylinder.
I would fix this sooner rather than later. Shifting without the clutch totally disengaged is real hard on the transmission syncros.

Good Luck, L.M.
