Default 1995 honda accord and im having some major clutch hydraulic problems.HELP?

my peddle went straight to the floor so then i pumped them with my hand and bled them. still nothing, then i replace both the slave and master clutch cylinder and then re bled the clutch and still nothing.The clutch fork isnt getting pushed by the slave cylinder fluid is coming out the bleeder valve. I know its not my pressure plate or throwout bearing because the other day i caught i little bit of pressure (clutch) and could barely shift, then i went to bleed them more and lost all of that little biit of pressure i did have. so its not my clutch being shot. its something to do with the clutch hydrualics, im possitive. im just getting NO peddle still, ive been working on it for weeks. i need my everyday driver back!

You have not really given any symptoms. When you replace slave or master, you really should have filled them first, before installation, in order to make bleeding easier and take less time. But now that you did not, what happens when you bleed? Does air and fluid come out, and do you keep doing it until only fluid comes out?

If you are doing the bleeding properly and it still is giving you trouble, there are only a few things that can be going wrong.

One would be you let the reservoir go dry.

It could be you just are not spending enough time bleeding, although you can speed it up by bleeding without pressure, by opening the valve and just putting your finger over it.

Another possibility is that you did not adjust the clutch pedal rod, it is too long, and it is not allowing the master piston to return far enough to open the reservoir vent passage.

You could also have a bad master even though new, with the seal cup installed backwards.

Since the slave is often lower than the master, sometime it is hard to bleed normally, and bleeding at the line where it attaches to the master can be tried instead. Once you get all the air out of the master, then usually you can move on down to the slave bleeder.

Maybe it's just me but Honda clutch systems seem hard to bleed. I have only had success with the two-man method, and doing it fast. The guy bleeding opens the bleed nipple, calls "down" and the helper pushes the clutch pedal down fairly quickly and calls out "down" almost before the pedal reaches the bottom.The bleeder man immediately closes the nipple and calls out "up"; the helper lets up on the pedal rapidly and calls out "up" and they repeat the process. The guy under the hood has to watch the fluid level and top it up (better yet, a second helper does it) as it is pumped. After half a dozen or so pumps try it.

The steep line seems to capture a large bubble that does not like to bleed out if you don't keep the fluid flowing.
