Hello, My old clutch in my 95YJ was slipping a little so decided to replace. I installed a LUK clutch kit. Pilot bearing,throw out bearing, disk and pressure plate. started the jeep and I can't shift into any gear. shut off I can shift into all gears. I pulled slave cylinder (external)got several drops of fluid, So I replaced slave cylinder. Bled line the best I could (by myself) I think that I got all the air out? but it still will not shift while running. No problem with master of slave before new clutch. Any idea's?

How does the clutch feel when you push it in, if it has little or no resistance until almost to floor you may still have air in line, if you have no one to help you bleed it get a 1 man bleeder kit ( small plastic bottle/plastic tubing) from the auto parts store...

Did you use the alignment tool when you installed it?

Power bleed it or open and let it drain through it.

Are you sure you installed the throw out bearing correctly. And are you sure the clutch fork is hooked on the ball.

Check the travel in the slave cylinder first, as was mentioned.

There are a few other things that could cause this, the disc in backwards, the throwout bearing not correctly installed.

How difficult is it to put in gear w/ the engine off? Does the clutch work then?

99.9% sure the disc is in right, Installed throw out bearing with both clips, took off clip for the fork and re-installed.Installed new slave cylinder and bled it. shifts fine when engine is off. peddle feels good. clutch just will not dis-engage.

SOunds like there is not enough throw. Is the clutxch master cylinder full? Is it spongy? You may have to bleed it more.

i, we just changed a clutch, pressure plate,and throwout bearing on a friends yj yesterday and it was doing the same thing. we checked it all again and found nothing wrong that we could tell!!! found out that if you let the clutch up a bit from the floor while shifting, it shifted just fine??? kinda like it had to much throw?? does yours do the same thing??

Mine turned out to be the bolts on the pressure plate backed out a little.I guess that you need to use lok-tite or lock washers on them. I torqued the bolts correctly, But apparently the PO had replaced the clutch before and must have used lok -tite because there was no lock washers on them when I took it apart. I couldn't figure it out so I took it to my Mechanic. He used lock washers and it works now. I don't know if this is your problem, a lot of people said air in the line can cause it not to shift.Good luck and let me know how you make out.
