Sounds about right, unfortunately.

Try cleaning and lubricating all of the zipper teeth. WD-40 helps if you don't have any zipper wax or lube.

But I don't know that I have ever been able to...

I agree with disconnecting the TPS and seeing what happens.

You can also use a multimeter to measure the resistance of the TPS as you turn it slowly. Maybe there are some dead spots or...

In fifth or fourth?

In fourth, those numbers work out to about 4.10 gears. In fifth, you probably have 4.56 or 4.88. Is this jeep lifted for bigger tires? Sounds like the previous owner swapped on...

Either your GPS or your speedometer gear are really far off. Oversized tires make the speedometer read slower speeds. There's no way you're turning 2800 rpm at 60mph in overdrive/fifth with 3.55...

Agreed. Straight back to the mechanic. Not your problem. They should pay for the tow unless you want to try to start in first and float through the gears.

Maybe they also replaced the slave...

I agree that fuel is the biggest concern if it is 5 years old. I would siphon out as much as you can. But I think you could get away with diluting ~1/4 tank of old fuel with a full tank of fresh...

Fluid should just come out when the fill plug is removed. It shouldn't gush out. But this has nothing to do with the clutch.

Was the clutch done by a mechanic? If so, take it back.

What does it...

Not a bad idea to replace the pump. Bosch is OEM and well regarded, but you can only buy the pump, not the assembly.

If I were you, I would pull the tank and find out what broke first.

I have a 1.25" body lift and lifted the tank by cutting the skid by 1" as you describe. The gas tank is now touching the triangular parts of the cross member where the shock mounts are. It can't go...

Can you hear the pump turning on? Did you check the fuel pump relay and fuse? You can swap relays or feel it click.

If the pump isn't turning on, measure for 12 volts at the fuse, relay output,...

You can just replace the level sensor if you want. I was the one who told you about the Bosch. You can buy the Bosch PUMP only, not the entire sending unit. You have to disassembly the unit to put...
