Default 1996 Honda Accord having issues with my clutch?

I just got a 1996 Honda Accord about 3 months ago. It was used but the paper work showed a lot of replacements including the clutch. First thing that happened was my throw out bearings went out got that fixed...then one day my clutch went straight to the floor I have my slave cylinder and my master cylinder replaced. When I got it out of the shop it didit have much pressure but everything worked fine and it felt better....This is my first manual....then some days it had pressure and it wouldnt engage until my pedal was almost completely at the top an other days not so much pressure an would engage closer to the recently it has a good bit of pressure engages closer to the top....If i push my pedal in I can hear something under the hood really good if my car is off an not as much with it on....I dont know what it could be and im trying to figure out before i spend a lot more money on something its not so please help!!!

Im not quite sure if the 96 accord is using a hyrdraulic clutch. if its hydraulic then there might be some air in the system. You need to bleed the cluch to fill it with fluid.

A broken motor mount explains it all.

I don't think the shop bled the clutch hydraulics well. It isn't easy because the line between the cylinders is so steep but it has to be done. They should try it again... and you should not have to pay for it. It is just a few minutes of their time to get it right. I have not been able to fully bleed a Honda clutch without having a helper and doing the two man bleed in order to move fluid through it fast enough.
