Did you just get a new master and slave? If so the only way I know how to bleed it is to hold the reservoir above everything else, fill it up and move the slave back and forth, not the clutch lever but the one that goes into the transmission. As you move it back and forth your notice air bubbles rise to the top of the reservoir. Keep doing this till you get all the air out, and youre good to go.

I know somewhere on here is a really good write up on this try the google search on this site. I had the same question and I belive it was MoparMan that helped me out. but if you just replaced a part of it you need to take the whole system out and put the reseivor in a vice and have your slave lower than the vice then with the cap off fill up the reseivor with brake fluid and pump the system slowly from the slave cyl. side forcing the bubbles up this is the ONLY way to do it. trying to bleed it from the master cyl. side don't work. when it's all bled make sure your slave cyl. don't pop apart and put it back on the trans. then bolt up your master and try it. Hope this helps.

interesting I called a dodge dealership and asked a friend of mine about bleeding the master and slave clyinder for the clutch and he said the way they bleed them is to unhook slave cylinder and push the rod all the in as far as it will go and hold it there and then pump the master in and out several times and that will force the air back up to the top,but he was very specific about making sure the slave rod stayed all the way in during the bleeding or it won't work,I tried removing the line at the slave and bleeding it that way,and made my clutch worse I have no pedal now,by the way I just converted mine from a auto to nv5600 with a new clutch and slave cylinder,also dodge dealers don't sell them pre-filled and bled,but I will try his way sunday and see if that works.
