Question about 1995 Jeep Wrangler
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.
