What are the symptoms of a failing clutch slave.....

Recommended Posts

I ask as my 89 MJ ( 4.0, BA-10) has developed a loosey goosey clutch pedal.

It just kinda flops around from fully let out to about half way depressed...then after that it has the normal resistance you would expect from a cluthc pedal. Seems the throw has been cut in half.

When I say it is loosey goosey..it just flops areound with no back pressure or resistance.

What say you?

Checked the reservoir...it was just below the min. No fluid leaking at the firewall..it is dry and no indications it ever leaked in the past. I will check the tranny tomorrow. I did fill it up and seem like i got some pedal back.

I forgot about the reservoir when i posted. Hopefully nothing major...a master cylinder I can replace no biggy...a save...think not. I have a Jeep service manual so i will see how to bleed the system.
