Question about 1997 Jeep Wrangler
I lost tension on my clutch pedal on my 4.0 97 Wrangler. I turned it off, and tension came back. Now I can only press it down about 80%. I can start it like that, but if I start it in gear it tries to jump forward while starting. It will drive in 2nd and 3rd, but not let me shift between them. When it is on, and I press it down to the 80% mark it grinds, in gear or not in gear. Please help, I miss my JEEP!!!
Sounds like a bad master cylinder or a throwout bearing that has gotten strange on you. (I'd know right away if I was there) Definitely don't drive it like that...you can damage the synchros in the transmission if you do. Also check the slave cylinder if it's not part of the throwout bearing...It also could have a problem.

First try adjusting your clutch. (Hope you have experience in doing this???) Get under the vehicle and loosen the lock nut on the adjuster rod (looks like threaded rod) that goes to your "throwout bearing fork", and expand (make longer) it about a 1/4 inch and retighten lock nut. Now get out from under there and press on your clutch pedal with your pointer finger only...(yeah..you heard me right...FINGER!). You should only be able to push your clutch down one inch before you start to feel serious spring tension. If you can push it down farther than one inch you'll have to get under there again and expand the adjuster rod even longer. Repeat until you achieve the one inch finger press. At least now you are somewhat adjusted and you should rev er up and give er a try before you go spending all your money for nothing! Let me know how you make out. firstname.lastname@example.org
