Clutch Question

Hey all,

So went to go take the jeep out today and had an issue

I started the jeep with it in gear and the clutch down but the jeep decided to start driving so i figured might just be low on fluid check it and it was fine.

Tried starting it in neutral and then shifting into first but wont go

No noise at all during either neutral, trying to shift, clutch in clutch out.

So is the clutch gone and I just gotta go buy a new one? or is there a possibility some gunk got in and needs a good cleaning? (the last time I was out ended up in some deep water nothing too serious but didn't have a problem with the clutch after that.

Oh and side note, about 95k miles on the jeep

Is there still the same amount of resistance when pushing in the clutch? The clutch plates could be stuck together, might be the slave cylinder, or any other clutch part not allowing the clutch to disengage.

yea clutch feels the same for resistance, no change in anything besides the fact that its just not doing what it should

The only other thing I can suggest is to drop the tranny.

Sorry. Maybe someone else can chime in.

Did water get into the bellhousing? If so did it sit for awhile? days, weeks? If so it could be possible that the clutch disk is rusted to the flywheel, this happens to tractors that sit for long periods as a matter of fact I had to split one of mine cause I couldn't break it free with the normal methods.

water could have gotten into the bellhousing. Drove it back without an issue(20min) and then it got parked for 2 days. Maybe it could have rusted up, one way or another I know ill have to drop it just not looking forward to dumping money

If the clutch is stuck you can try to un-stick it by putting it in 4hi and 1st gear then push in the clutch and pull it with another vehicle.

I have yet to get out today and try and see if I can get it unstuck

With the worst case scenario, could anyone suggest a good clutch?

Try pumping the clutch pedal, if you get any changes and it works better then it could be your master/slave cylinder leaking pressure internally. I just replaced mine on my 97 TJ 4.0 with similar symptoms, mine has a sealed system kit all complete. I ordered new OEM from Mopar parts America for around $200.
Very easy fix and cured my suspected tranny/clutch issues that I've had for a long time.
Hope this helps, good luck.
