2002 Dodge Ram HO 6 Speed diesel clutch issue

I just added a bunch of upgrades...and not the clutch is wacky.
I can push the clutch pedal all the way to the floor from first to second.
It's hard to shift from 2nd to 3rd...and when I reverse I have to stop/shut down the truck to get the clutch out of gear so I can start it back up again and go forward...

Any suggestions?

Clutch plate? Master cylinder fluid?

SOURCE: 99 dodge avenger gears will not engage

This is most likely an issue with the clutch slave cylinder... Typically, if the clutch master cylinder fails, the clutch pedal will not return and [usually] sinks to the floor under it's own weight. If the pedal returns, it's typically a clutch slave cylinder issue. The best thing to do is to replace both cylinders so that you'll not have to worry about either cylinder failing again.

ok starting where you did... on the side of the transmission itself there will be a 1/2 inch socketed plug that can be undone to add gear oil there will be another on the bottom that can be used to drain the oil. for clutch master, standard brake fluid can be used and is recommended. the causes is most likely low fluid or worn out syncros in the tranny.. check the level of fluid in the clutch system and fill and bleed system at the slave cylinder. after that check fluid in the tranny. if all there is fine then i would recommend bringing it to a trans shop for diagnosis. if the syncros are going out then you will be looking to spend between 750 and 1500 to have it rebuilt or 2000+ for a new trans

My 2001 was doing this...would also cut out randomly mid-acceleration and return to idle. Very fun when trying to get up to freeway speed! Turned out to be an accelerator pedal position sensor. Also threw no codes! Was approx a $500 (part+labor) about 4 years ago.

Clutch not disengaging when stopped at a stop sign for a period o

It is either your clutch master bleeding down, or your slave cylinder is leaking. Should be able to check inside the truck for a leak from behind the clutch master, the slave is by the trans.
