Clutch Problem Fixed, but not really!!!
Well as many people may or may not know, I've had clutch problems with my Jeep Wrangler since I bought it. Well, the the dealership I took it to(the one that replaced the clutch) said that it was definetly the master cylinder for the clutch. Well, I replaced that tonight and we bled the system and it drove great. Then I drove it some more and the clutch started losing a bit of pressure. I thought maybe there was still some air in the lines. Well, a ways into my journey home I realized that I could put the clutch in and still drive, not a good sign in my book. So after a good half-hour of driving with no clutch, I got home. I popped the hood and opened the cap on the master cylinder and found it low. It also had some sort of white stuff in it, can anyone explain that? I crawled underneath it and couldn't really make out any leaks, but I did manage to burn myself mutiple times on my exhaust
I wiped away the dirt and crap from around the drain plug and tranny. I went up top and pumped the clutch. I then crawled underneath again and found that the area I wiped clean was now having fluid run down. I smelt it and it had no real oder, so I'm figuring it's hydraulic fluid. Anyone have any clues as to what the deal is? What's the white stuff, where's the leak coming from. If you need more specifics on what's going on(like I haven't given enough in this short novel I call a post), let me know and I'll get back to you. Thank you all so very much and may my Jeep, Darva, be running soon...
