just a couple ?s

hey guys got a couple of questions for ya. on my clutch i have noticed that it sometimes sticks to the floor. the will release slowly when i let my foot off of it. now i was told that it may need some fluid. ok that is fine but where do i put it in at. and could that fix it? and secondly i have heard a lot about hydrolic steering. is it very expensie, hard to do? i am just curious. and if it will bennifit me i was thinking about doing it. it is my daily driver.

There is a small master cylinder on your firewall that contains your this fluid. It should have a round cap. (About 2" dia.) If it is so low that you are having this type of problems you will probably need to bleed your system. Get yourself a Hanes or Chiltons manual. It will walk you through the process.

That sounds exactly like the problem. I had the same deal before I replaced my Tranny. It looks like a white medicine bottle. If it keeps leaking, you might have to replace the slave cylinder. I did.

Like the guys above said, it's probably time for a new clutch master cylinder, I replaced mine about two years ago, I'm thinking an after market one goes for about $90 and they're not that hard to install, just remember to bleed the system before you drive it.

Had the same preoblem, I replaced the master and slave cylinder. I purchased mine from Chrysler, not sure if they still carry. But it came fully assembled with fuid already in it, just had to bolt it in.

I'll address the hydrolic steering question since nobody else has. If that is a picture of your Jeep by your name, there is no reason for hydrolic steering. Hydrolic steering is used when you are going to be turning huge tires on the trail when you are moving very slowly. I am pretty sure that it is not legal for street use in most states. There are full hydrolic systems and hydrolic assist systems. The hydrolic assist systems are more likely to be legal and still give feedback to the steering because of the mechanical linkage from your stock system. You can upgrade your current power steering system if you want to be able to turn the wheel easier much cheaper than adding a hydrolic system.

You are 100% correct on the hydraulic steering daddyjeep. It allows two finger steering with big tires, on the trail, with front lockers engaged, at slow speeds. The full hydo steering is illegal for road use, as there is no mechanical hook up to the steering wheel. Hydo assist steering, is legal on the street, as you retain the mechanical linkage to the steering wheel. If you throw the belt to the hydro pump, or rupture a line with full hydo, you loose all ability to steer your rig.
