Question about 1991 Jeep Wrangler

Clutch Pedal to Floor

Just got 'the call' from my daughter; the clutch pedal just goes right to the floor-no resistance at all-stuck in gear-does'nt this sound like the clutch master cylinder is out of fluid? No fluid leak in vehicle, so she says.Vehicle is 1991 YJ

    Just replaced a buddies whole clutch on his 1991 and put everything back together. Now leaks like hell from the clutch. Did we forget to do something with the slave cylinder? We put a new one in. Kit came with 4 o-rings but there are only 2 lines so my common sense said only 2 are needed. Put the new o-ring on the lines and pushed line into slave cylinder and put the "U" shaped retaining clip back in. Did I miss something? Thanks!

    i have a 91 jeep wrangler, and the clutch pedal falls to the floor.fluid was low so i added some but made no difference

    Master/slave clutch assembly replaced 2 years ago. Recently all clutch pedal resistance suddenly disappears, remains stuck in gear, no disengagement, impossible to select/change gear. After a stalled stop, clutch action is restored until the next time it happens. Fluid levels fine, no leaks. When it works it is perfect, then all of a sudden, clutch to the floor.

New clutch installed. No pedal, stays on floor unless I bring it back up with my hand. No resistance.

`Did it bleed, did fluid come out in a steady stream? Isn't there a spring to bring the pedal off the floor?
Check the linkage of the pedal to rod to the clutch master cylinder, make sure that is all together. Any chance the master has an internal leak and won't build hydraulic pressure down at the slave? If you get it bled, then watch the slave operation while someone works the clutch pedal. The piston on the slave should extend and push the clutch fork enough to disengage the clutch.

Clutch will not engage when it was engaging perfectly to begin with.

Your car has a hydraulic clutch release system, it is defective, either the master or slave cylinder is leaking or pulling in air and this causes the clutch pedal to go to the floor.

Why wont my car switch gears when turned on?

I assume this is a manual transmission, so in that case you have a clutch problem, how does the clutch pedal feel, soft allot of free play? Goes to the floor with no resistance?

1999 1.4 Ford Fiesta: When depressing clutch a very noisy rumbling sound but gear changing as normal. I added some gearbox oil and the noise stopped. Then, just the following day, no resistance when...

Hi There.
sounds like your release bearing has either collapsed or seized, either way you will have to drop the gear box and check it out... should'nt be a problem on a 1999 fiesta. just be careful not to pop a drive shaft and lose the transmission fluic on the floor.
Good Luck

Lost resistance on clutch pedal and hard to change gears also when topping up clutch fluid it does`nt last that much and leaks from slave cyclinder

If the slave cylinder is leaking, replace the slave cylinder. You are loosing hydraulic pressure in the clutch and is the reason why it is not engaging correctly.
