gots a problen with clutch

i was driving home 3 weeks ago and i couldnt get my gears to change as easyly as they had been. when i got home i couldnt get it to go in a gear at all without the it being off. so i got it to my school and to the auto teacher and he checked my fluid resavore and it was low. so they drained the line and refilled it. everything was ok till yesterday it did it again. is this a common prob and if so what is it? the teacher belives it is my slave cylender. just wondering thanks far any help

That sounds exactly like what it is--mine did the same thing. I actually went for months (a bad idea with hindsight) just topping the reservoir off every few days, and wouldn't you know the slave cylinder decided to give out at around 11:00 pm on a Friday night in the middle of traffic at a red light--the jeep just started lurching forward. My advice, when you can get a chance, go ahead and put in a new slave cylinder and clutch while you're at it (you don't want to pull that transmission twice), so that the same doesn't happen to you! Parts aren't incredibly bad--around $250-300 I believe, but the manual labor in pulling the trans and TC is a b*tch.

Currently an '86 CJ-7 and a '77 CJ-7 Golden Eagle---#4 and 5 following a '01 Sahara, '90 Sahara, and '85 CJ-7....

Hey Dude,
I had the same problem shortly after some rock crawling last year. I would have to say that it is probably your slave cylinder. As our fellow jeeper has already recommended, you should not drive the jeep like that. I did so and my trans has never been the same. Plus, it isnt safe. As any mechanic will recommend, you should consider doing the clutch/flywheel/pressure plate and all those goodies while yer in there. Good luck, Wolf
