clutch or slave/master cylinder problem.

hey guys, this is my 1st post but iv been a longtime site stalker.

i drive a 97 4.0 wrangler. a few days ago i went to start my jeep, and when i pushed the clutch in to start it up (it was pretty tight). it "popped" and the clutch peddle lost tension for about 3/4 of the push, and the last 1/4 has some tension. when i push it the floor, and try to start it, the engine will try to turn, but only get like a 1/2 ot a 1/4 turn and quit. im thinking its the slave and master cylinder, but im not sure, iv never had to deal with a clutch before soo im going to youu guys (the pros) for some tips.

Hows the fluid level in the hyd clutch?

More than likely its the actuating cyl in the tranny... looks like you blew a seal. (Or is that just mayonnaise on your lip?) LoL
