Default Clutch not working all the sudden.

I went off-roading and after I got in my jeep I pushed my clutch in and had it in first and when I tried to start it my jeep was jumping like the clutch wasn't pushed in. New to manuals so don't hate haha

I'm guessing it has an internal slave and has leaked out.

Look at the slave cylinder on the side of the bell housing and see if it's leaking
And check the fluid like stated above

X2 sounds like either a leaky slave or master cylinder

Took it for a drive and the clutch broke free and is working fine now. Not sure if it was jammed or rusted together
