I have been told two different things on my jeep, this is a closed system and I can't bleed the slave cylinder because it is inside the bell housing and I have been told you can bleed the slave even if it is inside bell housing because there is a valve sticking out, I can't find this. Can this master cylinder and slave cylinder be bled or do they both have to be replaced and do you have to drop the trans to replace them. Please help, jeep won't move, when I try to crank it just jumps forward

TROUBLE SHOOTING
Hydraulic system should not require addition of fluid under normal circumstances.
Reservoir fluid level will increase as normal clutch wear occurs.
Avoid overfilling or removing fluid from reservoir.
This will cause clutch release problems.

BLEEDING HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
The clutch hydraulic linkage assembly is prefilled at the factory and should not need bleeding under normal conditions.
Any air in the hydraulic system will be purged by normal clutch pedal operation.
Fluid level should be maintained at indicator ring on either side of interior rim of reservoir.
Fill reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid.

Pump clutch and then hold it down open the bleeder
do it few times keep adding and checking fluid
or
try to open the bleeder and let it drip in a clean container as u adding fluid in at top
if none is working
need to be replaced or
it may require power bleed
Check or have the clutch and the pressure plate checked
hope that answer you question

There should be a small grease cert looking bleeder poking out along the side where the resevior lline goes into the bell housing. I have seen some cars with no bleeder but not a jeep. And if you must change the slave cyl than yes you must pull the tranny. You can also go to your local parts store and ask them to show you the slave cyl for this jeep and see if it has a bleeder on it? Hope this help the earlyier post was a good answer. Curt
