Jeep is currently undrivable, and is my daily driver. when started there is a high pitched squeal/ grind noise (sounded like that last time throwout bearing went bad) thats about all I know. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

If you literally just "took the cap off the master cylinder" and started pumping its never going to get pressure because there's always an open line. And from what I know you always bleed from the slave. NOT the master because there is air going all the way to the slave.

I hope you're doing it something like this.

What side of town are you on?

The little asterisk or cross at the end of the price. Then you go to the bottom of the webpage and look at the fine print. It normally says stuff like, dealer not responsible for the accuracy of the information on this page. On some of the rebates it will say stuff like, not all customers qualify.


I noticed a lot of those shady practices at prestige.

Here's what happened to me a couple years ago when I had similar symptoms: I started my jeep. I heard a loud clang as the starter motor was turning over before the jeep actually started. There was no interruption with the engine, but I shut it off and restarted it with no issues. I drove normally for a few days. After about two weeks, jeep wouldn't start. Wouldn't turn over. For the first time in my whole life, I replaced the battery without checking the starter due to all the other times in my life when I did check the starter and it was always the battery. No change. New battery, still no start. Pulled the starter. The boss which holds the end of the motor shaft closest to the flywheel was gone. Yeah, broke right off. So, the motor shaft had no lateral stability because there is a bushing there which keeps the shaft straight. Shaft eventually seized. I figured it was one more problem related to the dbag who owned the jeep before me. Figured it had been that way for years.

Fast forward a month. Driving to work and go to leave a stop light. Shifting to second gear, clutch goes to floor and I have no power. It's acting like it's in neutral. Can't get the clutch to engage, no resistance from pedal. Get the jeep home, get ready to pull the trans. First thing I do is pull the slave cylinder to pull the trans. Guess what I found? The cast aluminum chunk of the starter had broken off the starter and become lodged between the clutch fork and the slave cylinder actuating rod causing the clutch to be disengaged full time. Good story, right? Worth checking anyway.

Prestige sucks. NOt only do I hate with a muthafriggin passion The Chopper because he is a complete dbag; you can't park anywhere near the parts department. I would rather order parts online than go through the hassle of trying to find a place to park so I can go in there and get parts.

I miss Jim Marsh being a Jeep dealer, sucked that the bankruptcy of Chrysler forced them out, but that's a whole 'nother conspiracy

If you guys ever head over to Chapman in Henderson ask for Corey Brewer. He is not the typical salesman dbag. He is actually a jeep guy and very knowledgeable.

I went to prestige first and those mo fo's would not give me my keys back when I asked to leave. I was getting a little mad and almost got to the point of yelling. The kicker of it was that chapman ended up doing a dealer trade from prestige... and I only live a few miles from prestige.
time to update your profile buddy you gonna lift this one or leave it the same as your old one?

I took the cap off of the piece under the hood that said "clutch" when I was trying to bleed it. I dont know much about vehicles or how they work, that was a method that was suggested to me. Jeep is currently located at the UNLV parking lot, and will have to have it towed to North Las Vegas where I live.
I dont know where to look at the slave to see if it is moving or not, so Im guessing that will be the major problem when it comes to checking. The clutch was very recently done, but not done by a shop or a professional, so I cant say it was properly installed.
Thanks for the help thus far guys..

I, unfortunately, don't know squat about manual transmissions.

I can pull apart a turbo400 and put it back together so it works 75% of the time, but thats my limit on transmission knowledge. Sorry I can't help, but hopefully some of these guys can point you in the right direction, pretty knowledgeable bunch.

Maybe you'd get more info in YJ tech?

I let my wife work herself into wanting a new one. Once she drove one it was an easy sell. Tonight I made her happy with our decision when I showed her how well the new dual spray nozzles work for cleaning the windshield... that an how much better the drive up to Mt Charleston was. Honestly it was mostly the new transmission better applying the power, but we wont tell her that

Manual transmissions are easy as hell.

Mike what part of town are you in? Might help to have someone with a little bit more knowledge swing by and look at it.

He's in North Vegas and he said the jeep is at UNLV.
