New Jeep Owner! Questions questions
Hey so I'm new to the forum, N driver, just got my first vehicle which happens to be a 92 YJ. Which I love. Although I've got a few problems which I know little about. Fairly inexperienced so I'm looking for some advice even if my questions are a bit pathetic.
My clutch is fairly new, but after driving it for a couple of days it was hard to get into gear. I couldn't get out of first so when this happened I had to drive home in 1st gear, luckily it wasn't too far. I bled it once and it worked mint for a couple of days but then I had the same problem again. I took it to a family mechanic since I still could drive it somewhat it was just tough tol put into gear and once I hit a stop sign I just have to fiddle with the clutch to get it into gear. We bled it there and he said it could be a leak in a hydraulic or something. So I took it home and it worked for a few days again, but now I'm having the same problem. Has anyone else come across this same problem? My brake fluid in the slave doesn't get too low quickly but after a few days it's a little lower. I'll have to drop the transmission to get to where he think the leak may be.
Also it's kind of cosmetic, but my windshield wipers won't function when set on delay. They have to be set at 1 or 2 to move. Not the biggest problem in the world but it's a bit annoying watching my wipers fly across the windshield when it's just a bit of rain. Will I hhave to replace the whole component to fix this or has anybody been able to discover a quick fix or adjustment with this same problem.
Third inquiry is i've heard some owners with a 4-cylinder have troubles getting up to 100km/h. But I find I have the same problem with my straight 6. Usually when going flat I have to floor it to even get to 90 or so. The only time I can get above 100 is once I hit a bit of a downwards slope. Is this what all Jeeps are like? I wasn't expecting a race car, but hey, better to ask right!
Thanks, like I said, new to the whole Jeep thing. I've been driving the parents Equinox and gotta say I can't imagine buying a car later on after owning my Jeep.
