I have a 2000 jeep wrangler, just replaced the master clylinder and slave cylinder but i continue to have problems after my jeep sets for awhile, the transmission will not go into gear, if i pump the pedal about 30 times it will shift great while i'm driving..............is there anything else that i need to check...........where is the bleeder on the slave cylinder, i saw on here that it is located on the back of the slave cylinder but on mine this is where the line in attaches and there is no bleeder there, if i feel up on top of the slave cylinder i feel something like an allen screw may be located maybe that is where it's at?...............thanks for any assistance.........already paid a guy 260 bucks to replace the master cylinder and slave cylinder............so now i'm even worried about taking it back and having him mess it up more
The bleeder screw is located on top of the slave cylinder. It will not work right until it is properly bled.If the reservoir runs dry, you will have to start all over. Have an assisstant pump the clutch pedal 3 times with the bleeder screw closed...then hold the pedal down and open the bleeder screw. Don't release the pedal until the screw has been retightened...continue this process untill no air bubbles come out of the bleeder screw....don't let the resevoir run dry...Please rate this...

Look to make sure your Hydraulic fluid level is full for the clutch. It
is located near the brake master cylinder(see owners manual) . If it
is low , fill it and pump the clutch pedal a few times and see if that
takes care of it. If it doesn't then I would be looking at replacing
the slave cylinder and master slave cylinder for the clutch. If it is
completely empty and you fill it and pump it a few times, and its back
to empty. Yes, you guessed it, look for a leak.
leaky slave or master cylinder - if you have someone listen to the slave cylinder while you press the pedal is should "squelch" if there is air in there, if the slave cylinder doesn't make a squelching sound then the master cylinder or a hydraulic line between the two cylinders is leaking - slave cylinder isn't very expensive but the master cylinder can be rather pricey. and any good parts shop or motor-factor can source or make-up a new hydraulic line if it is the line itself that is leaking.
U have what is called a hydraulic clutch, one of the hydraulic cylinders hs failed, there is a master and a slave cylinder. The most likely and most common cylinder to fail is the slave cylinder, this requires the transmission to be pulled out to replace it. the art is around $125.00, while the trans is out u might as well replace the clutch, the labor is about the same. Here is a picture of the part, let me know if u can see it.
your jeep has a hydraulic clutch line linked from its own master cylinder to a slave cylinder. This is a better option than your standard shift linkage used on older vehicles. If your master cylinder goes you will have no pressure in your petal and thus no movement of your vehicle. A blown line or a released bleed valve could do that as well, but those failing are less likely.
Likely, you have a hydraulic clutch system. Check clutch master cylijnder for fluid and leakage, check hydraulic line and slave cylinder for leaks. If fluid low or empty, bleed as you would a brake wheel cylinder. If full,have someone work the clutch while you watch slave cylinder to make sure it is moving clutch fork. If system full and little or no movement, the master may be "bypassing" internally (replace) Also, check pedal mechanical linkage. Not often but sometimes these parts can break! Could also be athat clutch itself is worn, but this does not happen overnight and you would have noted slip long before this!
