ARGH....need help - slave cylinder
Alright first off I have a '95 Wrangler, 2.5L, ax-5 transmission. That should be all the vehicle info you need. Anyway my clutch was going out so starting Sunday I began working on it. I'm sure many of you have changed out a clutch, no biggie right? Well, last night I get it all back together and hop in to test the clutch feel. The clutch does not move...it is completely locked in place. So I hop back under and look at a few things and can't find anything wrong. I hop back in and the clutch now goes all the way in with absolutely no feel. I think oh crap, hop back under and see the slave cylinder dripping, so I just am thinking this can't be happening, so then I take the slave cylinder off and what do I find? Oh, yes that's right I find the whole internals of the slave cylinder missing. I guess it exploded out into the bell housing, putting a nice thick coat of hydralic fliud all over my brand spankin new clutch...I haven't fished out the interals of the slave cylinder though, but I read in my service manual that for the 94 and 95 Wranglers the slave cylinders are none servicable and must be replaced as a master cylinder/slave cylinder/connecting line assembly. Ok so now I pretty much have to take the whole thing back apart to clean up my clutch and to get the pieces out and if that didn't suck enough, I have to find a place to get the clutch hydralics assembly...my dad went to Napa this morning to try to get it but the item they had that that said was the right part only had one cylinder in it and not the assembly. Alright long story yes, I guess I mostly jsut had to vent a bit. But here's the question: What could have caused the slave cylinder to do that? Anyone had this happen before?
