I have a 91 trooper 2.6 6cyl. Bought it a few months ago with about 160000 on it. Had the whole engine rebuilt top to bottom due to a major coolant leak. Part of that rebuild included replacing the clutch kit.
A couple weeks ago my clutch started losing pressure and would not go into gear, especially not into reverse without grinding. My mechanic thought it may be the master cylinder and the slave which he replaced. After replacing those two components Trudi (my trooper) ran fine with the clutch nice and tight with lots of pressure shifting quite well. Two days later tho the clutch started losing pressure again and is now not shifting very well especially not reverse...
It feels like sometimes itll have more pressure than others especially if I sit and pump the clutch for a while before shifting... ANYWAY
Does anyone have any idea what may be affecting my clutch pressure if the master cylinder and slave have been replaced??? I dont think its the pressure plate because Ive been told that if that was the issue then it wouldnt be inconsistent like mine is.... Honestly the pressure plate seems to be the only thing left to replace as everything else is new as far as I know...
ANY help would be greatly appreciated as Trudi runs really well other than this problem... and my mechanic said that as far as clutch pressure goes the master and slave would be the only things causing that problem ---- yet! the problem has come back!
HELP HELP!!!! S.O.S. Please and Thanks Trooper lovers
I recently bought a 99 Trooper. It is in excellent condition, but the transmission has become "clunky". It has 87,000 miles on it. By "clunky", I mean that there is a clunking noise when I shift it from park to drive or drive to park. It also clunks when I come up to a stop sign and it downshifts from 2nd to 1st gear. Has anyone else experienced this? I was hoping it was U-joints, but I fear it is not.
Well, you pose some questions that I don't think anyone can guarantee the result, but let's look at this from the perspective that auto trans need good, clean fluid in order to function properly. In your situation, you know your trans fluid needs changing. When you change the filter and fluid, the reality is that you will be only changing about 3 to 4 qts of trans fluid and the new filter won't increase pressure except that it will allow the pump to suck up the fluid easier. You will still have about 7 to 8 quarts of old fluid in the trans (converter, TCC module, etc;), so there is not that much "shock" as you might think. Each oil change will gradually improve the condition of the oil and hopefully prolong the overall life of the trans.
HTH One guys opinion.
