so I just bought an 89 YJ that's been sitting for 2 years...
 
hey guys. so like the title says I just bought a yj that has a rebuilt engine and tranny but has been sitting for 2 years. the owner said it needs the clutch to be bled as well as the brakes. the clutch will just go down to the floor and not put the car into gear. does this sound like it just needs to be bled?

Is there fluid in the clutch master? If not, when you add fluid does it leak out under the Jeep? Should be pretty easy to check.

airn890 04-09-2013 02:33 PM

yes there is fluid in there, next step lol? thanks in advance

so i went underneath the car to check out where you bleed from, i am not mechanically inclined btw if you couldnt tell but there seems to be some black rubber piece missing when i compared it to a video on youtube. Thoughts?

Ya, there should be a rubber gromett that both lines go through into the bell housing.

It's just for dirt/debris. Shouldn't make a difference as far as the clutch working. The bleeder is right at the end of the hose coming back out of the bell housing. Get to it.

just had a mobile mechanic bleed it and it didn't work. seemed like an honest guy and he had jeep knowledge. told me its the slave cylinder and it's internal so it'll be costly to fix. he told me $200 in labor which I think is pretty cheap

You have my condolences

1. fill out our profile.
2. Perfect excuse to do an External SLave Mod > http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/l...p-pics-965067/
3. Not mechanically inclined and YJ owner are terms usually reserved for the high school parking lot and involves lip gloss. Buy a manual and get greazy!

Internal slave cylinders are a two hour: three beer job for two people. Its quite simple after you start pulling bolts.

Ya, well that is about to come to an end. Jeeps and wrenches are like Beer and Pretzels:rofl:

Didn't anyone tell you there are only two kinds of jeeps: those that are coming apart and those that are going together. :laugh:

I haven't had to do an internal slave before but I have done zillions of external slaves (had to be a Chrysler moron that moved it into the bell housing). They are unusually a pretty straight forward job.

First rule of hydraulic systems is keep in clean.
Second rule of hydraulic systems is keep it clean.
third rule of .... (you get the idea)

take your time, and get some plugs to put in the lines, it will keep everything from getting coated in brake fluid.
