clutch problem

On my 93 yj wrangler the clutch pedal became non responsive. The fluid was a little low so i added some & bled the slave cylinder. When i pumped the clutch after bleeding, the fitting came apart where the line from master cylinder ties to slave cylinder. I have reconnected the line & added fluid. While pumping clutch i get same results repeatedly. I replaced the slave cylinder a couple of years ago because fluid leaked out of it. Is my problen with the slave cylinder again? Can they get clogged up?

Just to clarify, are you saying that each time you reconnect the line that it becomes disconnected?

Yes. That is correct & the clutch pedal pumping never yields any resistance. The pedal remains floppy with no resistance. It seems that the slave cyl is not pushing on the clutch at all

hmm... Maybe the seal in the slave cylinder has failed?



Does your slave cylinder look like that?

No. unfortunately mine is all internal. it is a complete circle that fits around the input shaft. you have to remove the transmission to replace the slave cylinder on mine
