It keeps getting increasingly more 'grindy' getting it in to 3rd, and now 2nd is starting to ever so slightly make a noise. I honestly don't think it's the transmission because the last time this happened the shop I took it to that was going to work on an issue with the motor bled it and it went away (2 years ago or more).
I haven't looked underneath her, but I figure someone here would know exactly where to go so I don't have to search (dont have a Haynes/Chilton).
She's a 1992 YJ 2.5L AX5 tranny.

Also, do you bleed it the same way with brakes (ie, wrench on the nozzle, someone up top presses it down a few times to get pressure and holds)?

Any other procedural recommendations?

give it some time. 4 hours isn't near long enough to expect a response.

Errr, it looks like the Clutch MC line leads in to the Tranny housing ... so, you have to drop the tranny or have a little kid reach in to the inspection plate hole to do it? Or did I miss something ...

Off the top of my head, isn't that a sealed system? Also, have you figured out how air is getting into the system? If you are able to, then yes, it'll be like bleeding brakes. open the bleeder screw, pump or use gravity, tighten, repeat till bubbles stop coming out. Be sure to keep the master cylinder topped off w/ fluid. And if your lines lead into the transmission, then you likely have an internal slave cylinder (again, not sure what year they moved it) but if you end up having to work on it, might as well put in a new clutch while you have everything taken apart.

As I recall...the slave cyclinder has a line to the master cyclinder and one that is a bleeder line that sticks out of the bell housing same side as the line to the master cyclinder, 10mm I think. Check your (clutch) master cyclinder level, make sure It's full. if so bleed the system as stated above. If the level is low, look for a "happy trail" at the bottom of your bell housing. If you find one, It's time for replacment. Also look under the dash to see if you have fluid coming down the inside firewall where the rod from the clutch pedal goes thru to the master cyclinder. If so it's the clutch master is on it's way out. Lastly, check your transmission level or when was the last time it had a fluid change ? Good luck ! Geeper
