2003 jeep wrangler clutch failure

I have a problem when I try to shift from neutral to 1st when the engine is running. The shifter gets very hard to move and doesnt make the shift. The same situation occurs when I try to shift to reverse. I dont have any of this problems when the engine is off.

If you have a hydraulic clutch it may need bleeding. If manual shafts as in the older jeeps, there was an adjustment on the linkage. First and reverse are the fastest moving gears in the box, so your clutch is not allowing the separation needed between the drive and driven plates to complete and friction is still driving the plates, preventing the shift.

That wouldn't be a clutch failure. That would be a clutch release problem. Big difference as your clutch plate is ok.

Yours is hydraulic. If the fluid level is low.... you have a leak. If pumping the pedal a few times allows you to shift easier then you possibly have air in system that needs to be bled out. How the air got it could be a leak.

Other than that you are at hydraulic actuator and remote piston replacement.

Luckily the actuator and remote piston can be purchased and installed as a unit and requires no bleeding.
