    Thanks Caesar,

    I made a mistake and our jeep is not a 98 but a 92 and found out that slave cilinder is inside transmission which makes it more difficult to replace =( ,,, but will keep looking and will let you know)

    my husband looked at it and followed the plastic hose that goes directly inside the transmission. It seems to be is inside and it is definitely leaking.

    thanks for your help

Look inside cab at the pedal assembly see if your fluid is leaking from the clutch master cylinder in to the inside, or follow plastic line inside the engine compartment, from the clutch master cylinder in to slave Cylinder, one of the two are bad, but when one goes the other follows, buy it on line Arizona Autohaus, is metal made and cheper than aregular autostore.

98 Jeep Wrangler will shift when off but not while running makes grinding noise.


There is something wrong with the clutch. Make sure that there is enough clutch fluid in it. For some reason the clutch isn't disengaging like it should, so you are grinding the gears in your transmission, making that awful noise. You want to get it looked at before you ruin your transmission by stripping the gears.

Get the clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder looked at.One of the 2 has failed.If the pedal goes to the floor or is very loose,this is very likely the cause.Not an expensive fix.Hope this helps

No reverse and very sticky other gears


Check the fluid in your clutch master cylinder.Its probably your clutch master and/or clutch slave cylinder are worn.

1995 JEEP WRANGLER Automatic 4 cyl. gears starting to slip


ck the condition of the tranny fluid. If the fluid is very dark, it will need changing. Another problem with the jeep auto tranny is that if the fluid has not been changed in a long time, the clutch material will wear and clog the tranny filter inside the pan.If there is alot of clutch material in the pan and you change the fluid and filter, sometimes the tranny won't work because the clutches are worn out too much.

Cant shift into first gear or reverse


You are likely correct...sounds like the synchro is shot or the shift fork is somewhat worn. Is fluid full?
As long as the clutch does not slip and is engaging and disengaging somewhere in the center to just below center of travel, it's OK.

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.

1991 jeep wrangler not shifting into gear could this be clutch


I would first bleed the tranny lines, if that doesnt work then your tranny is out and need to get it replaced. FYI with Jeep Wranglers, It is better to get a new transmission then to rebuild them
