1984 Porsche 944 Clutch slipping problem?

I have a 1984 Porsche 944. I just replaced the clutch and now after a day or so of driving the clutch starts to slip. I can fix the problem but only for a day or so by bleeding the hydraulic lines, there seams to be some residual pressure left behind in the lines when I am having the problem because when I crack the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder it squirts out some fluid. For some reason it seams that the slave cylinder is not returning all the way when the clutch pedal is released so it is not allowing the clutch plate to fully engage. Do you have any ideas what the problem might be?

Check the free play at the clutch pedal. it should be between 2.5mm and 3mm.

first thing you check you brake fluid level if is too low that would create air in the system .
It is part of brake fluid reservoir

My 944 porsche just stopped while i was driving it??? it had been running great all day. It didn't make a sound just stopped running. It has a new battery. it won't start, the engine won't turn over. I...

have you tried jump starting it?does the starter engage and try to turn the engine over?it's possible your alternator is not working properly and your battery is in a discharged state,could this be the reason you replaced the battery?try turning the engine over by hand to make sure it rotates freely.
