92 Jeep Wrangler YJ Clutch problems

Occasionally when I would shift it did not want to go into gear. If I pumped the clutch a couple times, it would go into gear. I replaced the master clutch cylinder and bled it and now it wont go into gear at all. Need help. What could be the cause of this? Its a 1992 Jeep Wrangler 5 speed. 4 cylinder.

Sounds like this is hydraulic related. You replaced the master, so the remaining issue is either the internal slave or the line in between. When you bled the new master, did you have good clutch pedal pressure afterward? Did it subside sometime after? Please explain what procedure you used to bled the new master cylinder.

make sure you got a decent master cylinder. I had same issue. Bought mine from clutchcity and havent had the problem since. I bench bleeded the master cylinder first. saves some time.

I bought the master from autozone, diconnected the cotter pin from the clutch pedal, took the pin out then disconnected the line, then took the 2 nuts off. Put the new one on. Went underneath the jeep and bled from the bleeder valve on the bell housing. I bled it 3 different times and still nothing. I did have some clutch pedal, but the 2nd time I bled it there was no resistance to the pedal. My clutch never slipped before, just hard to get into gears sometimes. But like I said, once I pumped the clutch a couple of times, it would go into gear. I bled it with the resevoir cap on and off, thought maybe that could have made a difference but it didnt. This is the first time I have changed a clutch master cylinder, but it didnt seem complicated. You think the new master clutch cylinder caused the slave cylinder to fail or does it sound like I just need to bleed it more?
