1999 Dodge Ram 3500 Pickup - Clutch

Changed the master cyclinder and the slave cyclinder and we are trying to bleed the clutch but there is no bleed screw on this year model truck. We have used the method suggested by our local mechanic and it has not made much difference because it has not even broken the tabs off the slave cyclinder, do you have any suggestions on how to bleed the clutch?

    I just replaced the clutch master cylinder in my truck. I went to bleed it and just noticed there is no bleeder valve on the slave. How will I bleed it? It just doesn't make sense, damn Dodge's, lol.

    i have the same problem-it is a 83 dodge dually-replaced the clutch master and the slave cylinder,i filled the slave cylider on the bench-next i filled the reservoir and allowed the fluid to gravity bleed down to the slave-once the air bubbles disappeared i connected the slave-still not working so i pushed back on the slave to reverse bleed it. it did get better but the pedal is still very low,must still have air in the system-help is greatly appreciated.

Use a hand vacumn and cover over the reservoir, apply light vacumn and the air will come to the reservoir, usually take 2 or 3 time and the air will work back out to the top,

Either you have to pull off the old clutch assembly(Master, slave cylinders, reservoir and the line),since its a factory sealed unit and replace with a new one or one from another vehicle, or , see if a parts store has the new ones out. The slave cylinder is the one with the bleeder valve.

New clutch not disengaging


When I do clutch jobs. I replace the clutch package(comes with the slave) and the master cylinder also. Have the flywheel turned or replaced. Just a note. The clutch plate can be installed backwards. No matter how many times you bleed it, It won't work.

I have a 1988 f350 diesel i replaced the clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder bled the lines and the truck still wont go in gear the throw out arm is moving about 1/2 inch what could be my prob


Ford has special bleeding and blocking instructions for clutch slave. Check manual for proper bleeding requirements. May consider presurre bleeding of master cylinder or use master cyclinder bleeding tubes that fill the resevoir as you bleed the and remove all air in system.

How do you bleed hydrolic clutch on a 97 Ford Pickup. I have tried pumping the pedal and it stays on the floor. I have replaced the Master Cyclinder and the Clutch cyclinder, plate everything is new


First of all, fill your brake fluid reservoir to the top. Not the clutch master (I will explain later) Now lift the vehicle in the air or crawl underneath it. This will take 2 people to bleed this properly. Measure the distance between the clutch slave and the nearest brake caliper. Cut a piece of hose this length to go between the caliper and the slave. Put the piece of hose on caliper and the slave, have the second person get inside the truck and pump the brakes. At the exact same time open both bleeders and when the pedal hits the floor close both bleeders (on the caliper and on the slave cylinder) do this until fluid starts escaping out of the clutch master reservoir. What you are doing is back bleeding the clutch from the lowest point to the highest point which is the direction air travels. Repeat the process until you get a pedal out of the clutch. This trick works every time for me, whether it is a bmw, ford or ferrari.
Good luck

How is the best way to bleed a master and slave cylinder for a clutch on a 01 dodge 2500 6 speed with the cummins


Bleeding any Dodge clutch hydraulics are very difficult & almost impossible. The best solution is to buy the whole assembly (master,line,slave) from the dealer. Its pre-bleed & all together. So don't separate or open system!!!! just install & go. Also do not remove plastic piece that holds the pin in at the slave.There is a reason(manufacturer) does all of this. It might seem expensive but the time you spend trying to bleed & or replace parts to fix it, will pay off.

The clutch will not engage properly on my 1988 toyota pickup. Already replace clutch master cyclinder and clutch slave?


There are a couple of possibilities; worn clutch plate, failed pressure plate, possible hanging up of the throw-out bearing. Also, some hydraulic clutches have a throw adjustment on the slave cylinder that may need adjustment after replacing the slave cylinder.
If you plan on more DIY maintenance, I would highly recommend buying a Haynes service manual, you'll find the $25 well-spent:

Have a 1990 150 lariat 4x4 put new trans in,clutch,slave cyclinder,and clutch master cyclinder, still having problems with the clutch pedal being low, i bleeded the clutch several time but it won't come...


I assume that the master cylinder is correctly installed. In that case the master cylinder's piston rod (to which the pedal is attached) is too short or maladjusted.
