Question about 1995 Jeep Wrangler

Clutch, Trouble shifting

Hi, I have a 95 jeep wrangler sahara package. 4.0, 5 Spd. I live in Minnesota. When it's warm, there is no problem but now that it's getting colder and colder, the problem seems to be getting worse. When I start out, it's fine. After I drive down the freeway for approx. 20 minutes and stop at the top of the ramp, I can get it back in neutral but it wont go into any gear except maybe 4th or 5th. If I push the clutch pedal down a couple of times quickly then it sometimes will go into 1st or 2nd with no problem. As it got colder the clutch seemed to get more spongy and the colder it gets, the worse it gets, it feels like there's not enough room left to push the clutch down to allow the transmission to shift correctly, from around 5 or 6 inches normally, to like 2 inches?? It was 8 degrees this morning and I almost could'nt get it back into gear. ????

If when you replace that slave cylinder, it is still not as it should be, don't forget the master cylinder even though they are less frequent failures. And, don't bother trying to prevent hydraulic fluid loss; you should change it anyhow (it's hygroscopic and will absorb water causing rust) and it will need to be bled to remove trapped air bubbles just like brake systems.
I really think you should have the service manual available for this, and potential future failures. Either Chilton or Haynes books are to be had at any auto parts store and are worth the $20-$30.

1991 jeep wrangler sahara shifting promblems

Your clutch is not disengaging. If it a hydrolic clutch chk. the fluid in resavor, Or slave cyl. for the clutch is bad, Or it has got air in it and needs to be bleed. This is a clutch problem, nothing wrong with trans. If its a manual clutch linkage its an ajustment thing. My best guess if its hydrolic slave cyl. went bad, or resavor is out of fluid.

1993 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Transfer Case

Sorry, but my solution would be to take that drive back to the dealership, if he has a warranty. This is a hands on type deal, you have to trace everthing with your hands. Now it sounds to me like it could be in the electronics. You have to go to the differential, find the vaccum lines, if equipped, some are not, then trace them back to the motor and make sure they aren't cracked or broken. I hope this solution was helpful, please rate. Thanks
