Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Hard to shift manual tranny. Yesterday clutch petal went to floor and no clutch at all?
1. If it is maintaining a gear when you try to start it in gear = Pressure Plate is fine. Don't do this too much as it can blow the gear in the starter. Just do it momentarily to test it. If you start it in gear and the motor fails to turn you can be reassured your clutch is fine if you had no slipping issues before.
2. If pedal went down and stays down = Check fluid levels for the clutch master. This has a return spring in the master so it should return on its own even if it has sprung a leak.
3. If fluid level is up = Linkage has possibly come off or actuator has come off at the fulcrum in the bell housing.
If this has come apart at the actuator arm this may or may not be accessible with the transmission installed for inspection. Look for an exploded view of this assembly and it will give you a better idea of what is happening. If it has come lose at the actuator fulcrum arm the transmission will have to be removed to service the failed part. The actuator arm or failed master is consistent with your hard shifting issues prior to failure.
