Do no use 4x4 on dry pavement. or you will wind it up and make i far worst. ( no NP129/229) you have 228 xfr case.

the clutch has many parts.
did you change out the throw out (release) bearing?
and the pilot bearing?
and check the front of the transmission main pilot shaft , for wobble ?
if the front transmission bearing is bad, the clutch disc can bounce
and you release the clutch.
was it quality clutch not china no name?
ebay clutches that are dirt cheap are dirt. (junk)
exidy is ok.

bell bolts loose.
PP bolts not at spec, torque.
clutch disc in backwards, nah.

yes you can bleed the clutch. (no if still stock)
the stock slave is sealed.
after market slaves can be put on and bled.
just like all clutch slaves can be, but are tad tricky as the bubbles want to bo up. like a motor cycle or air craft.
i gravity bleed mine.
or use 2x4 to hold clutch down and let the bubbles float out. 24hrs.

FSM skips this step, cuz its sealed system.

your jeep has no center differential or read prop shaft slip clutch like one year had.
so it not full time 4wd its part time.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: how do I bleed hydraulic clutch in 1991 jeep

There is a bleeder on the drivers side of the transmission follow the tube from the clutch master cylinder if you cannot find it. Pump the clutch up and hold it down then open the bleeder repeat till air is gone. May have to bleed again after driving a bit. If you want to bleed the clutch master cylinder run a tube from where the line goes into the cylinder and take the cap off and run the tube into the fluid (make sure its in the fluid) then pump the clutch slowly until no air bubbles. I just replaced my clutch master cylinder this is where the information comes from hope it helps you out!

SOURCE: 1990 wrangler all new slave cylinder, pressure

If you have had the flywheel cut, have a clutch with a different release height (different finger or diaphram design & height) or a remanufactured pressure plate, or all of the above, you may run into this problem.
Small differences there translate to a large difference at the pedal. On linkage type designs, there were several options including longer/shorter throwout bearing or adjustable fork pivot ball. Hydraulic systems should compensate somewhat, but if you are beyond the travel of the slave cyl, I'm not sure there is anything you can do from the outside. I would check that there are no air leaks. If you have an external slave cylinder you may be able to make a slightly longer rod that connects the slave to the clutch fork. I really can't think of anything else to do at this point.
Hope this helps a bit.

SOURCE: where is the bleed valve for clutch on a 1991 jeep

1. Fill master cylinder reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. Raise and support vehicle. Attach bleeder hose to bleeder screw on bleed line of slave cylinder. See Fig. 1 (attached in link) . Place other end of hose in glass container 1/2 full of brake fluid. Loosen bleeder screw while holding bleeder screw fitting.

2. Have an assistant depress clutch pedal to the floor. Tighten bleeder screw and release clutch pedal. Repeat bleeding procedure until fluid entering container is free of bubbles. DO NOT allow reservoir to run out of fluid during bleeding. Refill clutch master cylinder reservoir.

CAUTION: DO NOT allow bleed line to bend or flex when loosening
bleeder screw.

My 99 jeep wrangler has a load banging when im in reverise but goes away when i bush the cluch in i feel the hammering in the bellhouse but not in the gearbox?

Sounds like a clutch pressure plate or clutch disc problem. One of them may have a broken spring. You will probably need to renew the clutch.

My son is getting ready to replace his clutch on his 1992 Jeep Wrangler 6 cyl 4.0 l when he returns from Afganistan soon and wants to know if there is any other "stuff" he should replace at the same time...

Always replace the 'throw-out' bearing (which pushes directly on the clutch pressure plate) even though it may be good now. There is a bronze pilot bearing in the end of the crankshaft that the shaft end of the transmission slides into and tends to wear after long use. If badly worn, it can cause minor vibration sometimes after a gear shift. To remove the bearing, you will need to rent or borrow a 'slide hammer' tool with a twin-fingered puller adapter. Make sure the flywheel surface is reasonably smooth and no debris clinging to the surface. This is important if the clutch was 'chattering' before when engaging. Buy a plastic clutch-disc alignment tool that you use during the installation of the disc and pressure plate. Hope this helps!

I have a 97 jeep wrangler with I-4 manual trans. Rattle in trans at a stop with clutch in and out. at one time there was a whine also but now that is gone. I dont drive this much. only 52,000 miles on her....

Rember when you press the clutch in, the pressure plate releices the clutch disc and input shaft in the transmission. If you still have noise, It can only be either a broken spring on the pressure plate or the throw out berring. Neither can be serviced. There is a fill plug on the side, It takes ATF

Have a 2004 jeep wrangler x with a manual transmission and when it is in nutral and the clutch out it rattles. Is this normal? i still have the factory warranty and went to a chrysler dealer and they tried...

A rattling noise from the transmission is never a normal condition no matter what anyone says, and the first thing to do is to check the transmission fluid level, but it sounds to me like the throw-out/release bearing is riding the clutch pressure plate, and when the clutch pedal is in the up position the throw-out/release bearing and the clutch pressure plate should not be touching each other, and the only time that they should make contact is to release the clutch disk in order to shift the transmission into gear. There should be about 1 to 2 inches of free play in the clutch pedal, and the clutch should start to grab within 1 to 2 inches of letting the clutch pedal up off of the floor, and if this is not the case you might need to have the clutch properly adjusted especially if the clutch does not start to grab until the clutch pedal is half way up from the floor. Also, the main bearing in the transmission could be going out due to low fluid, or a damaged pilot bearing that is allowing the transmission input shaft to wobble just enough to cause a rattle from the main bearing or even a vibration in the transmission.

1995 wrangler front end rattles when i release clutch

Most likely the noise is the throwout bearing. If you have lots of miles on it you may consider doing the entire clutch while you're in there. If the pressure plate is in really good shape, you could just replace the disc, but if there are any hard spots on the plate it may chatter. Don't forget the pilot bearing in the back of the crank either.

1990 YJ Clutch at very top... is it pressure plate, or adjustment?

Unlikely to be adjustment, but check it anyway. - Ensure clutch throughout bearing is not carrying when clutch is out, i.e. when clutch is released, there is some 'play' in the pressure plate actuating arm at the gearbox.
Adjust if necessary.
If all above ok, only the clutch plate/pressure plate condition remains as cause.
