2003 Wrangler Clutch Problem
I have a 2003 Wrangler Rubicon with the I-6 engin. This weekend while driving I was trying to shift into 3rd gear and it would not go so I pulled over and played with it and finally got it to go into gear and all seemed fine. Then I got about 300 more yards down the road and when trying to change gears it would grind real bad and the clutch is very hard to depress. At this point I came to a complete stop could not get the jeep in gear and the cluch is had to depress. Was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what may cause this and what I need to do to fix it. I do have basic mechinical knowledge but not much on clutches or clutch problems. :banghead:
Thanks in advance.

The clutch is hydraulic, check the fluid in the cylinder.

Already done that. It is full. Thanks though.

Took it into the shop today. They said I need to replace the clutch and the master cylinder.

Replaced clutch, master cylinder and slave cylinder and problem is fixed.

Clutch problems. Have to rap it out to 4000 to shift, or it will feel like it is slipping. Occasionally I hear a tink under the jeep. Is this the clutch plate getting old? Maybe a trow out bearing. Wanted opinion just in case this could be a transfer case or Pumpkin problem.
