i think youre doing the right thing. they are very stubborn to bleed because the hyd. line goes up high across back of engine before droppiing back down to slave cyl., trapping air. could try to gravity bleed by opening bleeder at slave, cap off of master cyl, full with fluid then it may start to come out after a bit. then try your process again. or can try to bleed at connections further up the line, working your way back to bleeder. hope this helps. be patient.

Best to get the help of a friend to pump the clutch pedal for you.
Take care with the brake fluid, as it removes paintwork !
Top up your clutch fluid reservoir, connect a bleeding tube to the nipple on your slave cylinder, and put the other end of tube in a container.
Get your friend to pump pedal 3 times, and then hold to the floor.
Open the nipple for 5 seconds or so, then close.
Repeat this about 6 to 8 times topping up the fluid as you go.
You should then find, that the air is out of your system, and your pedal is back to normal !
Good luck !
A FixYa rating would be nice.... Thank you ! John.

I have not tried myself but see if the link below will work for your case. It is not the same model as you have but most vehicles have the same components for the non electronic parts. http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1988-dodge-dakota--bleding-air-out-of-clutch-master-cylinder-vt248517.html
