Sounds like you still have air in the clutch system. Sometimes it takes several tries to bleed it all out of the slave cylinder. Make sure you keep the resivoir full as you bleed the air. Also have someone press the clutch in while you watch the rod come out of slave cylinder. Is it fully extending? If not check for leaks and continue to bleed. If it is fully extending you might have a clutch, pressure plate or throw out bearing issue.
