1992 YJ Won't Shift Into Gear

Went out to my jeep started her up, and went to put it in reverse and nothing, it wouldn't go. The clutch feels really loose and its pretty easy to push it all the way to the floor without very much effort. When I shut the jeep off it goes into gears without pushing in the clutch (which should be normal) but I don't even know where to begin, Clutch's are not my specialty so any help will be appreciated!

Is this it?





I would imagine since I don't really see any fluid it means its empty?

What kind should I put in it? I think the cap just says DOT 3. Something like this will work: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/acc...ier=33408_0_0_ ?

So that's the short term solution, how do I fix it long term?

I just got a prebled master/slave from rock auto for $111 shipped (although mine is an external slave to it took me about 30 min to do). If you don't have any fluid by the master it is more than likely the slave went out. If that is the case you will have to pull the tranny to swap it.

hey this same thing happend to me what you want to do is fill the master cylinder with brake fluid then check and push in the pedal a few times and see if fluid is leacking from the the bell housing if it is you need a new slave cylinder and since its a 92 its internal so you need to pull the tranny to replace it. and if it leaks inside the fire wall on your feet you need a new master cylinder

Alright, just bought some prestone dot3 brake fluid about 24oz so we will see if that is enough. I didn't notice any thing leaking inside near my feet before but i will check after I fill it up. Where is the bell housing? Of course I can't find my haynes manual right now :/

Ahh ok, i think I know where you are talking about and if my memory serves me right I think I might have seen something dripping there before and i couldn't figure it out, but hopefully not. Also I just found my manual and i want to make double sure I'm looking at the clutch MC because the manual says it should be translucent but mine is black.
