Make sure you got enough fluid and when you bled the system dont let any air in. Have a person push down the pedal, open valve real fast, and close it. You have to do this many times, inorder for the air not to get back in. After you bled it pump the pedal a few times. I just changed my clutch too, and thats what I did. If that doesnt help maybe you have a bad slave cylinder?.. Good luck.

Yeah, you just need to bleed the system.

If that doesn't work then I agree with theruss1an1, your slave cylinder has probably gone bad.

Check the slave cylinder bye taking off the two bolts and looking to see if the plunger is still on it. If you didn't get it to set in the release fork then the first time you press the clutch the plunger shoots out.

Have you tried starting the car? It might just be a lack of pressure from sitting or bubbles that are in the slave (even after bleeding).
