My 2005 Dakota,V6, 6spd Getrag manual. This has a hydraulic clutch and after nearly 12 years, the fluid is out. That explains the clutch don't feel up to par.

So, is there a step by step way to bleed the system when adding new fluid in?

I don't believe that there is a bleeder screw. If air has gotten in through the slave cylinder, then air will continue to get in, even after bleeding.
If the slave has worn enough to leak or to allow air in, then the master probably isn't far behind.
The brake/clutch fluid (DOT4?) may be deteriorated and the rubber swollen.
You may wind up having to replace the one-piece clutch hydraulic assembly to fix this properly.

What do you mean by "the fluid is out"?

Is the fluid level too low? Likely that means you have a leak, bleeding won't fix a leak.

I certainly can't hurt to replace the fluid in a hydraulic clutch system, but I've never heard of the fluid going so bad it effected the performance of the clutch pedal.
