Default Clutch problems, please help!

Ok so the car i am working on is a 1996 accord. Before I bought it the previous owner had replaced master cylinder for the clutch. It never had good feel, but I was driving down the road and I could just barely get it in gear. Just enough to get home. There was no fluid in the resivior and I noticed it had a slow leak before this happened. So i replaced the slave cylinder and have tried bleeding at the master cylinder and by the slave cylinder but it will only push out a few bubbles and a little fluid then nothing. The method of bleeding I used is cracking the bleeder pushing pedal to floor. Close the bleeder and bring pedal to the top and repeat. I am stumped and don't know how to fix it. So i figured i'd come here to ask you guys. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Ash

You need to pump the pedal before opening the bleeder. It requires two people and can take a long time if there is air in the system.

If the cylinders are good, the system is sealed and all air has been evacuated it will work properly.

I had the same problem after installing master and slave in 02 Civic. Worked for hours until I bought a bleeding pump. Turned out the new slave cylinder had a faulty bleed screw with burrs on the threads. Put some Teflon tape on bleeder screw and worked like a charm.
