So, it appears I blew my clutch yesterday. Couldn't shift. Somehow was able to make it home. Got home and saw my line leaking on the inside of the firewall down into the floor pan where your feet go.

How serious is this? How can I tell if I have an external or internal slave?
I'll probably take it to a mechanic, but at this point I don't even know how I'll be able to get it there. Maybe a tow. Unless anyone knows a temporary fix just to get me a few miles?

Thx all.

If its leaking inside your heep its the master cylinder, about 60 bucks at NAPA and pretty easy to swap. if it was your slave cyl. it would be leaking out of the bell housing and you have to pull the trans to fix it.
stay away for the master cylinders for auto zone or advance they are junk.

Awesome, thx. Found a MC from Quadratec for $70.

Any instructions on how to do the swap? Tried searching but came up empty.

I just replaced my leaky master. It took 30 mins total. But now my old slave cylinder won't hold the pressure so I'll be changing that out in a month once im finished rebuilding my xj's tcase
