newbie to site need help w/93 clutch
 
hello guys i just bought my 1st wrangler, its a 93, beautiful shape 80,000 miles, ive had it a month and now clutch isnt working,ive driven it maybe 5 times 40 miles tops, last couple times i drove it pedal felt weak it was really cold both times but after it warmed up a bit it went into gear and shifted fine, so tonight its 12 degrees i tried to drive it- no pedal at all, checked fluid and its filled ,looked underneath no leaks that are visible, im hoping this is an easy fix was gonna try to bleed it see if it stiffens pedal, would love to hear from you jeep guys where you would start?? thank you

i bled it, just gravity bled it ,and tons of air came out, pedal is really stiff now and she's shifting fine, im still wondering how the air got in there since it shifted fine and i hadnt opened the line anywhere since i got it? so im worried it wont last, i looked at autozone and advance master is 35-50 bucks but slaves start at 150, i would still love to hear some opinions??

sounds like it would be your mastercyl,just replaced mine couple months ago.mine had some air in it.and a small leak at the firewall.look behind your gas peddle.mine was leaking there and brake fluid will eat your paint off

i was wondering that, there is some corosion on the firewall directly below the master but it looked dry and fluid was full, so i thought it was an old problem that was corrected, but the paint has been eaten off, i will pick up a master cyl tomorrow are they pretty easy swap out? and thanks for the tip btw

they r pretty easy to swap.just remember if u get any brake fluid on your paint and dont get it off it will eat your paint off.and u will need somebody to help you bleed it
