Clutch is getting the best of me

So my clutch stopped working on Thursday, went to get parts Saturday and got a new slave&master cylinder! Got them in and bled them and there's a steady stream of brake fluid coming from the slave, but the clutch is still sticky. Itbwont come up right away when releasing it comes up slow, and I can barely get it into my gears, what's happening is it the master cylinder or what? Do I need to adjust the engagement point?

Still have air in the lines. Did you bench bleed the MC before install?

I even used a bleeding kit! That's preposterous. And no I read it would be the same either way of I did or not it just takes longer I heard.

Re: Clutch is getting the best of me

Is there air coming in around the valve fitting? Might need to take it out, wrap a little sealing tape around the threads, and reinstall it.

What do you mean by the valve fittings? Like the brake line valve fittings?

Update, I bled the clutch again as much as I can, keep getting a steady stream, and It got a bit tighter! Still sticky when coming up though but now its driveable, just took it around the block! So I might go get some more brake fluid and try to bleed it a little more

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
