Clutch master/slave cylinder questions

2001 SE Sport 4.0

Clutch is out on the Jeep. When the clutch pedal is depressed, I can hear fluid sound like it's passing through the slave cylinder. Time for new assembly, correct? Current one is full of fluid that all looks good.

2nd Question. Is there a preferred brand? Is NAPA okay, or do y'all recommend something different?

I just got one from Auto Zone when I replaced mine. Not sure of the brand. Worked just fine.
Check out my TJ rebuild:

Does your slave leak? Have you tried bleeding the system? Search in the tj forum only and look for “clutch bleed”, and it’ll lead you to a lot of info. From reading it seems your not suppose to bleed these master/slave units, but that seems stupid to me. After reading a bunch it is possible to just replace the slave if it’s leaking, and just replace the slave for half or less than the $200 price of the master/slave unit.

I always buy LuK clutches and master/slave sealed units. LuK is the Jeep OEM brand. No bleeding needed. I paid $85 at 30 minute job.

X2 to the above Luk recommendation. I would not go with the Duralast brand sold by Autozone.

When you have a choice, buy American.

My current system came from Napa, works fine been there for a number of years, I have at least 100,000 miles on it.

By the way, these are closed systems, without provisions to bleed them.
X2 on the Dura Last, I would steer clear of Auto zone Duralast parts.
