Curtis97Tj I need to replace my clutch master cyl. I hope that fixes my hard shifting issue. Already did new slave cyl but no change

Got_Mud? It was the master cylinder. Figured I'd start with the cheapest part. Under $50. Took 30 minutes. I took the old one apart and it had a bad score in the cylinder. Weird... but it lasted 210k miles....

Got_Mud? So are we thinking that it's the master, slave, clutch, toss-out bearing, pressure plate or the Jeep got gas and developed an air bubble? I'm lost...

sppfields Try bleeding the clutch. If that doesnt help, then its probably the clutch slave cylinder. definately not fun.

Got_Mud? No other ideas?

Got_Mud? Well that doesn't sound like a lot of fun...

Would it make sense to replace the whole thing since I've got it apart?

Fweaky The throw out bearing or clutch release bearing may be going bad.

Clutch pedal issue - weird..

Hi all,
First off, 1995 YJ, 4.0L 5 speed

All was well with my Jeep on Tuesday. I drive quite a bit and know when something is different.

Wednesday I drove about 8 miles and shut it off. When I started it back up, the clutch pedal was acting like it was "stuck" and would not depress. I held hard pressure on it for about 2 seconds and it slowly moved about an inch, then depressed normally. If I took my foot completely off the pedal, it sticks and I have to give it pressure until it releases, again about 2 seconds.

It feels like a power brake pedal, with the engine off, after pumping it a few times - that hard; right up until it releases.

If I "rest" my foot on the pedal - not press it, but just rest it, it depresses normally. The pedal has about two inches of "play" before it starts to disengage the clutch.

The tranny shifts fine, no issues and no problems, once the pedal is down.

The master cylinder is full of fluid, and no leaks that I can see.

I crawled under the dash and could not see any binding or anything in the pedal itself.

Before I go and replace everything on a guess, I thought I'd toss this out for the more knowledgable folks and see what you all thought.

Thanks for any input or advice!

::edit to add - there have been no changes, upgrades, downgrades, wheeling, or anything at all abnormal lately. This just "happened
