Here is the installation from Chrysler. Did you replace the master/ slave cylinder and hose assembly together, as it is shown here?

CLUTCH LINKAGE

The clutch master cylinder, remote reservoir, slave cylinder and connecting lines are all serviced as an assembly. These components cannot be serviced separately. The linkage cylinders and connecting lines are sealed units. They are pre-filled with fluid during manufacture and must not be disassembled nor disconnected.

REMOVAL

  1. Raise and support vehicle.
  2. On diesel models, remove slave cylinder shield from clutch housing, if equipped.
  3. Remove nuts attaching slave cylinder to studs on clutch housing.
  4. Remove slave cylinder from clutch housing.
  5. Disengage slave cylinder fluid line from body retainer clips.
  6. Lower vehicle.
  7. Disconnect clutch pedal interlock switch wires.
  8. Remove locating clip from clutch master cylinder mounting bracket Clutch Hydraulic Linkage
  9. Remove retaining clip, flat washer and wave washer that attach clutch master cylinder push rod to clutch pedal Clutch Cylinder Push Rod Attachment
  10. Slide clutch master cylinder push rod off pedal pin.
  11. Inspect condition of bushing on clutch pedal pin Clutch Cylinder Push Rod Attachment Remove and replace bushing if worn or damaged.
  12. Verify that cap on clutch master cylinder reservoir is tight. This will avoid spillage during removal.
  13. Remove screws that attach clutch fluid reservoir to dash panel.
  14. Remove reservoir mounting bracket screws and remove reservoir from dash panel.
  15. Rotate clutch master cylinder 45° counterclockwise to unlock it. Then remove cylinder from dash panel.
  16. Remove clutch master cylinder rubber seal from dash panel Clutch Hydraulic Linkage
  17. Remove clutch cylinders, reservoir and connecting lines from vehicle.

INSTALLATION

  1. Tighten cap on clutch fluid reservoir to avoid spillage during installation.
  2. Position cylinders, connecting lines and reservoir in vehicle engine compartment.
  3. Lubricate cylinder seal with liquid dish soap to ease installation. Then seat seal in dash and around cylinder.
  4. Insert clutch master cylinder in dash panel. Rotate cylinder 45° clockwise to lock it in place.
  5. If cylinder seal is hard to seat, unlock cylinder and reseat seal if necessary. Then lock cylinder afterward.
  6. Position clutch fluid reservoir on dash panel and install reservoir screws. Tighten screws to 5 N·m (40 in. lbs.) torque.
  7. Install reservoir mounting bracket on dash panel, if removed.
  8. Apply a light coating of grease to the inside and outside diameter of the master cylinder bushing.
  9. Install bushing on clutch pedal pin.

  11. Connect clutch pedal position (interlock) switch wires.
  12. Install locating clip in clutch master cylinder mounting bracket.
  13. Raise vehicle.
  14. Install slave cylinder. Be sure cap at end of cylinder rod is seated in release lever. Check this before installing cylinder attaching nuts.

  17. If new linkage has been installed, remove plastic shipping stop from master cylinder push rod. Do this after installing slave cylinder and before operating linkage.
