 I and everyone I know use dot 4 and on every dodge that I have had and seen with the fluid detail stickers on the slam panel have said dot 4.

 If you have fluid loss through the rear of the master cylinder then start there, if you have fluid loss coming from the rear of the slave cylinder start there.
Sounds like classic air getting in somewhere.

 oh i thought of something else, you might have some air trapped in the slave cylinder, I have had to 'backbleed' them before, to do this you open the bleed screw  tiny bit as you push the push rod in thus forcing any trapped air out.
 I came up with this method a few years ago when I couldn't get one of my dodges new slave cylinder bled up, seem to work then & I have done a few times since too.
Give that a try, though if you do have leaks they will need sorting out asap or you will suddenly have no clutch at all somewhere not nice to be with no clutch.

when you say push the rod in do you mean to engage the clutch or the other way to dis engage it
and thanks again
