Great site. Got the start problem fixed, now how about my clutch. I have to push it almost to the floor for it to disengage. A couple weeks ago it was soft and had to go close to the floor. The reservior was low, I topped it off and perfect. Now its soft and really close to the floor and the reservior is still full. Are you supposed to bleed the hydraulic line like brakes?.I had the tranny serviced and clutch replaced this spring. Does this sound like something simple or do I take it back to the tranny place (they have a good reputation). Thanks

The hydraulic clutch system on the TJ is a completely sealed unit. You can't bleed it. Sounds like you have either a bad master cylinder or a bad slave cylinder. If one is bad, you have to buy the whole batch anyway. You get both, already connected and sealed.

HI, I appreciate the response. I took it to a good transmission/clutch place. They said the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder was partially knocked loose by a stick (lodged into it) and sucking air into the system, even though it was not leaking. They put on a new bleeder valve and bled the system and said no charge. Now works perfect. SO... great place [ Atlas Transmission in West Palm Beach, Florida].... and YES, 97 TJ's have a clutch system that needs to be bled.

I wonder what year they went to a sealed system then? Because I know that my 05 is sealed, and I've heard other people talking about their systems being completely sealed. Glad you got if fixed though!
