    Sounds like clutch master/slave cylinder going bad or transmission clutch springs getting going bad. Have done both, have it checked by a transmission specialist for answer of which.

    There is a shop on this website in Vegas. Try the locator for your area. I can't keep track of all the different prices anymore, Age & mind goes first. On a Dodge I would rather get the clutch/slave assy from the Dealer. It's ready to go, no bleeding. The labor is not bad maybe an hour or so, not at the shop for estimator. If transmission clutch on a Dodge maybe $800.00 some places more. No worries just money. Lol
