Question about 1989 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

My clutch pedal has no resistance and I can't shift gears...

When I try to put my Jeep Wrangler in first gear, I have to push my clutch down to the floor and I am just barely able to get it into gear. When I take off, it is hard to get to second, third and so on. The clutch pedal has barely any resistance. Do I need a new clutch? Or is it just hydraulic fluid that has leaked out??

If you have a hydraulic clutch, it is conceivable that the fluid has leaked out. For areas of leakage check up under the dash where the clutch master comes through the firewall., or check down at the transmission at the clutch slave, which is the small cylinder on the transmission. You should also fill the reservoir immediately as well.

If yours is the adjustable type of clutch, then you need to have it ajusted immediately

If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.

try pushing the knob down onto the shifter a little bit then try and shift. Sometimes if that knob is raised even a little bit it will be locked in park. Can't be 100% sure without seein it but worth a shot. Hope that helps you.

2000 jeep wrangler clutch has to pressure and thus wont allow me to put it in gear.


Check the clutch fluid level. If it's low, add some (takes brake fluid). There is a bleed valve down on the clutch slave cylinder on the bellhousing. Open the bleed valve and have someone push the clutch pedal slowly to floor, and hold. Close the bleed valve, and repeat until fluid comes out in a steady stream when the pedal is depressed. Your pedal should have pressure now, and the clutch should be working.
If no fluid is forced out the clutch master cylinder, into the line, and to the slave cylinder when clutch is pressed, then you may have a bad clutch master cylinder. If fluid does come out the bleed valve, but still no pressure on the pedal, it may be a bad slave cylinder.
Post back for more. Would like to know what you find out, and what the problem was, OB. Good luck.

Problem going into gear


Your clutch system works the same as brakes do. The necessity to bleed tells you that there is a malfunction permitting air into the system. Check where the pedal rod goes into the firewall under the dash, the line itself, and the slave unit (some are inside the bellhousing...look for fluid dripping from bottom to verify if leaking) Not unlike brake master, they can also internally bypass. If you find no leaks, change master. Bleed system and you should be fine

The jeep shut down while backing up and now the clutch goes all the way to the floor and i cannot put it in gear. what is this ?


Hi,It sounds like the clutch master cylinder or clutch slave cylinder have failed.This is a very common problem that is being seen more and more on the 2007 and 2008 models.If you still have a warranty it should be covered and if a recall is issued,it will be covered as well.You can also go here to see current recalls and technical service bulletins(TBS)
