Clutch / Shifting problems 92 YJ 4.0L
My YJ has been doing this for a while but it's getting worse and more difficult to drive in the city or in traffic. The Jeep has 170,000 miles and the clutch is an aftermarket Centerforce.
From a stop, it's difficult to get into first gear (or reverse), usually requiring me to pump the clutch several times before it goes in. From there on it's not bad, shifting is slightly on the rough side, but as long as I'm moving or rolling at least little bit, it will shift okay.
In the city this is a problem because if I don't hold down the clutch the entire time while sitting at a stop light, it can take a few seconds to get moving once the light turns green.
It's always grinded when trying to get into reverse, unless I put it into second or something first and then quickly shift into reverse with the clutch still held in.
Does this just sound like air in the master/slave lines? Bleeding issue? Or is it more of a transmission gear or synchro problem?
