Problems Shifting

Having alot of trouble going in to gears and things. Started not too long ago but the other day when I was in a rock drain it wouldnt come in and out of the gear it was in, and I mean I was pulling and pushing as hard as I could..

When Im moving in and out of the garage going from reverse to bulldog, it grinds. I figured Id just get a Centerforce Clutch Kit and replace everything, but want to make sure its indeed the clutch first.

Any Suggestions?! (PS I dont know the exact model tranny, but its on my 85 PowerRam 5.9l)

I am not familiar with dodges but double check your linkage first. If it is hydro then you might just need to bleed it.

Ill try to bleed it tonight, Ill have to try and find a haynes manual or something first because Ive never bled a clutch, only brakes..

And is adjusting the linkage of a clutch pretty resemblant of say throttle cables, brakes, etc.?

Unless you have done a clutch job recently, the linkage is usually ok on a Hyrdo clutch. Some aren't even adjustable. Just make sure there isn't a lot of slop before the throwout bearing starts make contact with the pressure plate. It shouldn't ride against the pressure plate either. You might have someone watch the clutch arm as you push the clutch in to make sure it is moving enough. If it is not.... start by bleeding, if that doesn't make it move more, you may have a bad master or slave cylinder.

Bleeding the clutch is much like bleeding the brakes. (I have not had to bleed an internal slave, I understand it to be a bit harder but still doable.)

Before you open the bleeder valve, ensure that the clutch fork has pressed the pin all the way back into the slave. (This was a big problem of mine until I figured it out.)

Fill your reservoir up!

Crack the bleeder valve, have your helper press the clutch pedal down slowly. Once it is to the floor, have them hold it there until you close the bleeder valve. Check to make sure the clutch fork is pushed back in again and repeat the process until there is no air escaping.

If you have to do this more than a few times, refill the reservoir.
