93 YJ wierd shifting issue....

93 YJ will not shift when the vehicle is on, but will shift when it is off. There is no grinding or noise, it just will not go into gear. All fluids are good.. and no leaks on the floorboard, and the slave cylinder is not leaking, although it is internal (lucky me). Clutch pedal is fine, not squisky, loose, or tight...


Ideas please!!!!!!!

Bleed that baby. You got air in the system. The slave could be leaking in the bell housing that's what mine was doing. If you bleed and it works temporarily my bet would ve internal slave leak. All you have to do is gravity bleed open the bleeder and keep pouring fluid in. I like to fill put the cap on crack the bleeder get a stream close. Open the cap fill replace cap crack the bleeder etc do this until clean fluid is coming out. Then test her out.

Use more pb blaster and give it time.
I've been known to just grab a big ol vise-grips just to take out the old bleeder and get a new one, they're only like $4

Open the cap and pump the hell out of the clutch pedal.
Id say a good 100 times. That is the only other way. If that helps, then you know it was air. If it comes back, then its time to replace the SC and possibly the MC, I would get a kit regardless.

Nevermind us little people who told you to bleed the clutch. I will admit bigboss is the man when it comes to clutches.

I was just messing around. Bigboss has helped me a lot. Ge is a great asset to this forum. Glad your on the road. I was able to bleed mine and get 2-4 months at a time for awhile. Then she finally caved on me. Hope yours is different.

Well I am glad I can help people out!
And yup, like matt said, if it comes back in a while like his did, then you will have to consider buying a new one as there is a leak somewhere. Pumping it is a temp fix (if it leaks) as is bleeding it (again if it leaks), so keep in mind and read up on changing it so you can nail it on the head when you are forced to do it.
But good luck and I hope yours is a different story, and works as mine did.
And thanks for the compements!
