make sure the fluid doesnt look burnt.... when you floor it you can tell if the clutch is slipping or not....

No, there is no dip-stick. You have to crawl under it and remove the upper plug on the tranny, stick your finger in it and it should be pretty close to the hole, might even run out when you pull the plug. Dodge has pretty nice 6spds, if you end up with clutch problems buy a Luk clutch, we have had excellent luck with them on our Ford 6spds., and they were always cheaper than OEM. Good luck!
