any suggestions or test i should do before i buy this thing?
have someone get in the jeep and have them push the pedal, do you see the slave moving ? if its not you have a slave or master cyl problem . is the slave rod still in place or is it missing ?

jeepskala i was thinking also, maybe the master could of took a crap, maybe its just not building the pressure, either way, when i go to buy it, im going to remove the master line and slave as a whole from my 4cyl tj and bring it with me and ill try swaping it over if i find that the slave does not move when i remove it from the tj im buying. god i hope its a slave,

and i know the kid im buying it from he had the tranny and clutch done at reputable shop here on long island that does nothing but trannys and such,

rrich With a bad throwout bearing you'd still have pedal.

Sounds like the slave cylinder is gone. It's easy to replace and not expensive. Look underneath it to see.

Get a quality one - NAPA, CarQuest, etc, not a Chinese knock off at Autozone.

CapnDean Hmmm.... my Korean friend SumTangWong answered this one.

New Tranny, New Clutch, bad throwout bearing? I say something fishy.

ANYBODY worth their salt that changes a clutch, is gonna change out the pressure plate, clutch disc AND throwout bearing simultaneously. TOB is too cheap to re-use.

I am not saying that it is impossible to get a bad throwout bearing from the manufacturer.... but you might want to check that NEW transmission NEW clutch claim.

Sgt.Smith My 2008 Mustang had the same issue where the clutch drops straight to the floor, and would stay in gear. It cost me $690 for a new slave cylinder and throwing bearings. So it maybe an easy fix. My was in the shop for 4 hours.

jdhallissey No pressures means throwout bearing is gone. If you start it up go to put it in gear can you or is it stupid hard too. Does it make any noise? Replacing the clutch and putting it in right is about a 4 hour job. That is what it took me yesterday not working very fast lol
