1999 Dodge Ram

I have a 99 Dodge Ram 2500- Cummins, 2 wheel drive, 5 speed manual trans.
I had the slave cylinder replaced approx. 9 months ago. Lately, it's getting harder and harder to shift.
Any suggestions?
Thank you

Master and slave cyl come as preassembled unit. No way to bleed it. If someone said they changed slave cyl...they maybe pulling your leg. You have to change both at same time. Usually around the $250 for parts alone.

Hello HighDesert222
Before I changed the clutch and pressure plate I would have the master cylinder looked at, In my experiance its sounds like It could be either the Master or the Slave One or the other, If its What your saying Getting harder to shift is usaually has to do with what I said it would be. If it where your clutch or pressure plate you would not be able to Pull anything or it would Slip when accelerating and you would not be able to go up steep hills without it slipping thats a sign of the clutch and pressure plate going out. But what you explained it sure sounds like your Master or Slave Cylinder Try bleeding system and see if you get your clutch back. I am sure you will see thats the problem. Should save you a lot of money too. Most service stations will not change the Slave or Master when Changing a Clutch and Pressure Plate so if you have that done make sure you ask them to maks sure they change it, And if you don't and just do the Master or Slave, I am sure it will work. I have seen many parts bought from a parts store go bad in 6 months too. Always buy lifetime parts Just in case of what has happend to you. sure hope that saves you some cashola. Thanks for using Fix it

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.

Abs and park brake light came on same time


Its either the speed sensor on the rear differential or your steering wheel is all the way down pinching a wire in the harness. I have had both problems. Raise the steering wheel and if that does not fix it then its the speed sensor(might be called something else) but it is on the rear diff.

Dodge cummins won't start, fuel reaching injector pump but no fuel coming out of injector pump.


You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?
