Re: Jeep clutch

Is your clutch hydraulic line picking up HEAT?? Seems like you replaced the whole system. And if it's working when it's cold, I'd suspect that your line is too close to the exhaust and is boiling the fluid.

Re: Jeep clutch

Before you try anything, bleed the clutch. Run a lot of fluid through it, that should insure that the fluid in there is clean and free of bubbles.
