I have a 95 jeep wrangler yj 2.5L that the clutch is bleeding off. I bought new clutch master cylinder for it but is different than the one I took off which come to find out was the wrong one somebody else...

if there is no slave there, than its coax. see 95 Ax5/15 box photo below. "called COncentric by jeep" or sandwiched by us.
first replace the MC, bleed it, and test.

if that dont fix the clutch, then the coax is bad.
you never stated symptom/s. (lost fluid? there are 15 clutch symptoms) ive done them all, and blown many racing so......
if the coax is bad, you must pull the tranny

see item in red, took me 10 hrs labor to do mine, so....
my new wrangler is external not by accident....

1989 jeep wrangler cluch pedle goes to floor

These jeeps have an hydraulic system with a master cylinder up top and a hydraulic line leading down to a slave cylinder. You likely have a leak somewhere and your hydraulic fluid is gone.

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.

I replaced the cluth and slave cylinder in my 1988 yj wrangler. After bolting everything to gether i found out that the shifter will not move out of neutral. some one please help.

Did u bleed the system to get rid of the air. Put fluid in the resovoir, open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder, put a hose on the bleeder valve and into a container with clean fluid and pump the clutch until no bubbles-close the valve and remove hose, check resovoir and top up--system is now bled.

Clutch adjustment 95 Jeep YJ

no, there is no clutch adjustment. the clutch is hydraulic, and self adjusting, there are several things that can go wrong with these. with normal wear the fluid can run low allowing air into the system, causing a weak peddle. they can also develop leaks in the master and slave cylinders resulting in fluid loss also causing a weak peddle leading to an inopperative clutch. check the fluid level in the clucth master cylinder(next to the brake master cylinder. if it is empty, refill it(it takes brake fluid) then cycle the clutch peddle a few times and check for leaks. if there is air trapped in the line the clutch will need to be bled. there is a bleeder screw on top of the slave cylinder, bleed it just like bleeding brakes.
