Why is this my daily driver!

Frustrated jeep owner beware...Ok here's the deal drove the jeep.last night no issues this morning (late for a meeting) jumped in the jeep and found that the clutch has no pressure checked the fluid and its empty. I know that the 87 has an.internal slave which means dropping the transmission (again! Just had it done to replace the flywheel). I'm hoping its the master cylinder leaking this may be a stupid question but how can I tell. if the master is bad?

Hi, welcome to the club! You just found one of the best jeep sites anywhere.

You can tell if the master is leaking by looking up behind the dash, on the vertical part of the firewall. If its leaking, then there will be fluid running down, or a wet spot.

In addition to what oldtime_ironman has stated, make sure all the hydraulic lines are in good shape and that the connections are goodntight. You can also check for any fluid dripping from the bellhousing.

There is also the bleed line from the slave. Make sure there isn't any fluid escaping from there as well.
