Just got a 98 5 spd. Clutch seems really stiff. Are they hydraulic or mechanical? Is there maintenance it needs for easier smoother operation? Thanks!

I have an '86 5 speed and it's hydraulic.

I have the opposite issue, I don't have enough tension.

1. Open your hood
2. Look on the firewall, more specifically drivers side
3. You will see the big brake fluid reservoir
4. You may also find a much smaller reservoir with a steel line running from it to the transmission, that would be a HYDRAULIC clutch Master Cylinder. If your Jeep has this, it is a Hydraulic Clutch system.
