1994 Jeep Cherokee 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 200000 miles
I’ve got a 1994 Jeep Cherokee 4X4 with clutch issues. I parked the car one evening and when I got up the next morning the clutch would not disengage. The clutch pedal was about halfway down and didn’t really seem to do anything. I purchased and installed a clutch kit and put everything back together. The problem is almost exactly the same with slightly different symptoms. The clutch still doesn’t disengage but the difference is that the piston on the hydraulic slave cylinder pops out when the clutch pedal is depressed. When I reinstalled the slave cylinder it is in contact with and has pressure on the throw out bearing yoke. I have no idea what’s happening that would allow the piston on the slave cylinder to travel too far but it breaks the plastic clips off the piston when the clutch pedal is depressed. There is a bolt on the opposite side of the bell housing from the slave cylinder that looks like an adjustment bolt where the other end of the yoke should be but it doesn’t seem to do anything
If anyone has a clue what’s going on I’d appreciate the help.
