No clutch action on depressing pedal- can't shift. No leaks visible around master cylinder or underneath clutch. Pedal returns when depressed. What could something be broken/loose?
1999 Jeep cherokee 4.0L
Checked for loose connections and leaks. None found
What is the year, make, and model of your vehicle?
1999 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L engine.
Loosen the slave cylinder on the transmission. Have someone push the clutch in while you watch the rod on the transmission. If the rod moves then there is a problem with the pressure plate. If the rod doesn't move then you have a bad master cylinder/slave cylinder which are serviced as one on this model.
If you still need help just reply, if not click ACCEPT when we are done.
This was a question from my son that is stuck on the road in Virginia. We thought the slave cylinder was internal to the clutch. Is it mounted external on the transmission?
It is external.
HYDRAULIC LINKAGE The clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder and connecting line are serviced as an assembly only. The linkage components cannot be overhauled or serviced separately. The cylinders and connecting line are sealed units. Also note that removal/installation procedures for right and left hand drive models are basically the same. Only master cylinder location is different.REMOVAL
