2004 Dodge 2500 Diesel Not Starting

2004 Dodge 2500 diesel will not start. Electrical seems OK. Have lights, gauges and all functions electrical. Clutch does feel stiff. When I try to start I get the same reaction as if I am trying to start when clutch is not depressed. This problem resulted after rough road driving. Could have I have a problem with master cylinder, slave cylinder, clutch linkage or clutch reservoir I can check? Can I find diagram of clutch system layout that might help me? When I had running before this problem shifting began to get hard in higher gears. Thanks

    Thanks for the help. It was the clutch switch. It had seemed to come out of the housing. I pushed switch back in housing and started the truck with no problems. Thanks again. Great Job!

2000 dodge 2500 diesel 5.9 automatic ac compressor doesnt turn on

ac systems require a certain pressure to function at 15 years you more likely have lost pressure. you will have to hook up ac gauges to see whats up , if you have sufficient pressure then you can look for electrical issues , clutch, pressure switch, fuses,relays etc.

Oil pressure gauge in my 2001 2500 dodge ram diesel is at 0. the check gauge light came on. Plenty of oil. what could it be

Any number of things but do not drive the truck. Possible sheared oil pump drive. Possible electrical fault in oil pressure sense and warning system. If it is an emergency you can loosen the oil filter a little to allow it to leak, start the truck briefly and see if oil is pushed out under pressure. This tells you if the oil pump is OK. Personally I would have the truck towed to a garage or dealer.
