Question about Dodge Ram 2500

1 Answer

How far does the slave cylinder on a 99 ram 2500 diesel have to travel to disenguage the clutch?

The clutch on my 99 ram 2500 quit completely disenguaging. I replaced the slave cylinder and master cylnder. This helped the problem, but didn't fix it. Replaced the clutch, pressure plate and throwout bearing. When I reinstalled the slave cylinder there is no clutch pressure until the pedal is half way down. With the new internal componets, the slave cylinder will only have about 1 1/4" of travel to disenguage the clutch. This seems too short. Open for suggestions!!!

SOURCE: trouble starting after clutch/flywheel replacement

if starter does'nt turn over or only sometimes turns over the problem is the bolts that hold starter in there is something covering them (Sealant,Oil,Grease,Paint) the bottom of these bolts must be bare metal to provide A good ground for starter a quick ck of this to confim can be done with a jumper cable one end of cable on battery negative term and other to back cover of starter (scrape paint) do not let it hit starter power wire (red) turnn key if it works correctly you know you have a bad ground
bad engine grounds can also affect dash gauges from providing a believable reading and also electronic engine mgmt controlls

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 just bought a 1985 F350 1 ton truck, it has a hydraulic clutch. The clutch disenguages fine when the truck is warm, but when I drive it 30 miles and every thing heats up the clutch does not disenguage


I'm sure you've checked the fluid level, I would first try bleeding the system to rule out any air pockets. It also could be a fluid bypass situation, especially if the master/slave are old or the cup seals have been exposed to contaminated fluid. The seals can become hardened over time and will not expand along with their respective bore when hot. The cure for that is replacement of the clutch master cylinder and/or slave. The master cylinder is a fairly easy task, but the slave cylinder requires removal of the transmission. Bleeding this system can be frustrating, but you should be able to find plenty of information about the process around the web. Good luck.

It sounds like the clutch is getting worn or the slave cylinder is not pushing the pressure plate in far enough.If at all possiable try bleading the cluthch slave cylinder an see if that helps.
