Question about 2000 Jeep Wrangler
I recently filled my clutch fluid valve with DOT 3 brake fluid, after having trouble with my gears shifting and the clutch going to the floor. The clutch pedal is now working fine, except that everytime I start my Jeep after not using it for the night, It's extremely hard to get it in any gears. After some wrestling and I get them into gear, I have no problem shifting. This has been going on for a week. Please help! Thanks, David
You have a hydraulic problem here is all thats wrong i think ,but why did you need to fill up with fluid ,well it must be leaking slightly somewhere and to find the leak you must have a good look ,now whats happening is the clutch is working after you use it a few times as the leak allows the air to escape but when your not using it then the fluid leaks and the air is getting beck in and my first suspect is the master cylinder so look up under the dash and see if you can see the leak .-if you see a dampness around the pushrod for the clutch then you will need to renew the cylinder ,yes i know you can fit new rubbers if available but only to a metal cylinder but a lot of new vehicles are using plastic cylinders .

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.

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

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.
