If you have replaced the slave unit, and bled the system, then I'd replace the master cylinder on the firewall and bleed it again.
It seems though that you are a bit week on the diagnostics end...A slave unit is bad only if it is leaking fluid or frozen from non use. A bad master, can either leak externally (usually visible where the rod goes into it on the passenger side of the firewall) or internally bypass causing the slave not to move. The line between them cannot be leaking either or nothing will work. If everything appears to be working but the clutch will not disengage it is possible that the clutch itself is bad.

1995 jeep wrangler 2.5l, 150k From neutral, can not shift directly into 1st gear, I have to slam it kind of hard into 2nd and that allows me to shift easily into first gear. Once moving the shifting is...


it appears from your description that it is a clutch operation problem
in that it is not disengaging properly to allow the clean selection of first gear
that amounts to air in the hydraulic system, faulty slave cylinder or faulty clutch master cylinder
unless you have oil on the clutch plate causing it to stick or a dry or seizing spigot bearing in the flywheel( possible ), there is no report from you about a clutch problem( slipping , shudder smelling hot)
At this point replacing both the slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder would be the fix especially if they have not been serviced since manufacture
take it to an accredited brake /clutch specialist shop for diagnosis /quote
some vehicles have the slave cylinder internal in the bell housing (very bad and repair costly manufacturing idea) and if that is your case , the transmission will have to be removed to replace it
should that happen and as the box will be out , it will be cost effective to inspect the clutch at that time

My 87 jeep wrangler shifts fine when not running. will not manually shift into gear when running?


sounds like your clutch is not disengaging. when you press on the clutch pedal you should feel the resistance of the clutch pressure plate. There is a pilot bearing in the flywheel when it goes bad it continues to turn the transmission mainshaft not allowing your gears to line up for a shift, but you have noticed a bad noise if this were the cause. Or your clutch hydraulics have gone out. check your fluid level. if low you may have sucked some air into your system. you will have to bleed the lines as you would for car brakes. The other possibilities are bad clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder,

I cant put on gear when I start the engine.


Check the clutch master cylinder, the line to the slave cylinder on the bellhousing and the slave for leaks. If fluid is low there is a leak. Master can "bypass" as well similar to a brake master in which case it wont leak but the slave won't move when the clutch is applied. If that system is working then the clutch likely has worn out.

Changeed the flywheel and hydraulic throtle baring / clutch slave now wont go in to gear grinds bad any answers


You have air in the hydraulic system, sometimes there is a funky bleeding routine. I hade a Ford Ranger and you had to pump up the clutch master cylinder before connecting it to the slave cylinder, it took a couple of tries but it did work in the end.

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
