2002 Jeep Wrangler 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual

I have a 2002 Jeep Wrangler and the clutch is starting to give no resistance when I press it down. As a result I can't always change gears. Does this mean I just need more fluid and if so how do I check the clutch fluid?

See my profile. Not real familiar w/ your rig. ME CJ GUY, do understand hydraulic clutches. Saw your getting an answer was slow, so I jumped in.

A manual for your rig, might work wonders for you, about $30 at Autozone or Advance Auto! Keeper, always with you, could use as a reference, with me now, so that you understand stuff. Helps on maintenence, troubleshooting. Next repair.

Definitly need to bleed. Look for oily streams that might indicate a leak in slave/ clutch cylinder system.(Where your fluid went)

Reservoir is on fire wall, under hood, clutch pedal is directly on the other side of the fire wall. Fill cap is on top. USE BRAKE FLUID ONLY !

!St Body, PUMPS Clutch 10-12 times, on last stroke, HOLDS to floor.

2nd Body breaks bleeder loose on Slave. Letting AIR/ fluid expell.

As soon as sputter stops, tighten hose back up. (Close bleeder while there is still fluid pressure, squirting out)

Then alert 1st body, to pump 10-12 times and HOLD, again,

Do this over and over, until you are satisfied NO MORE AIR WILL COME OUT.

Keep RESERVOIR, FULL AT ALL TIMES ! ! !

Let me know whats going on.

May share some cool CJ mods with you, when you return,

Love, Turddog
