In just about all vehicles you should have about 1/2 to 3/4 inch free-play before clutch begins to release. Adjustment is done this way , Not from the floor up...

Why won't it engage any forward or reverse gears?


auto or stick trans, we find out its an AUTOmatic.
this trans is most likely a pure hydramatic.
and no TCM tranny brains then.



check levels next. (by the book dont guess)
check the shift cable, for proper movement. in all gears.
"selections, they are no gears" the automatic shifts via clutch packs not gears. like stick does.
move the shift lever and be sure the transmission end of the cable moves 1 for 1 same; that is moves to all transmission shift positions. (at trans itself)
if not the cable is bad or came loose.
inspections are first never transmission swaps, blind (on a whim);
the FSM book covers all this."chapter, on car service" all cars made have this chapter.. an amazing fact.
next, is get a new filter in the trans.
if clogged, the pump can not suck AFT. (shunted input)
so line pressure drops, and it cant shift.
no need to do the stall tests as it fails 100%
next is line pressure, tests. if that fails,
it needs a rebuilt trans.
but dont take my word , read the book.
or ask your tech to do the tests, he knows, how...

97 jeep Cherokee clutch will not depress to start the engine


Now you need to bleed the clutch at the clutch slave cylinder down on the transmission to restore the clutch.
Put a wrench on the bleed valve and open it, then lightly close it. Now have someone pump the clutch a couple of times to build pressure. Then while the clutch pedal is slowly pressed down open the bleed valve, then close valve as pedal gets to floor. Repeat this bleed process until a steady stream of brake fluid comes out the bleed valve. Then you should have a good clutch again.

My clutch pedal used to be pretty stout and the clutch would engage at about the midway point to the floor. All of a sudden the clutch pedal is pretty free to the floor where the clutch now engages. what...


sounds to me like the clutch master cylinder might be bad usually this happens when the line or the clutch master cylinder leaks fluid and you lose pressure to your clutch pedal...you should have a hydraulic clutch on this truck...if its leaking it will need to be replaced its located under the truck usually on the drivers side mounted on the transmission bell housing...hopes this helps

My clutch is very free till almost the floor where it now engages. it used to engage about midway to the floor. what could have caused this?


you should buy a self adjusting clutch, you can set the clutch yourself, to catch right away,or, a couple of inches of play, It could also be your clutchplate, not cheap! I hope this helps you in some way

1985 Jeep Cherokee with 2.8L manual Transmission 5speed that is having issues shifting from 2-3 and 3-2?


Hello,

Try to change your transmission fluid, and if that does not work, then the clutch disc is getting worn out and needs replacement.

Take care

Jeep dies when I try to shift. manual transmission, 4.0, 4wd. Jeep won't start when clutch is engaged and it dies when clutch is engaged. Reverse lights work, it will start and run if I start it in gear-...


You have a wire shorting out when you press the clutch. You will need to have help looking for it. Have someone set inside and press the clutch and look for a wire that is coming into contact with the linkage. Good Luck.

Check the Slave cylinder operation. If the gears engauge with the car off it is a clutch problem not the trans.

My a/c is not working in my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I suspect the A/C clutch is not engaging. In general, how much does this cost to repair? Thanks!


If the clutch is not engaging, the system could just be low on refrigerant. That's about a $300 job these days with the cost of refrigerant. If the clutch or compressor are bad, then you're in the $500 - $1000 range probably -- just a guess, but it'll give you an order of magnitude.
