Question about Cars & Trucks
I believe the two problems are unrelated. The clutch sounds like a bad master cylinder-an internal seal may be failing. Does it grind the gears, and difficulty shifting? If it's that bad, trey a new master cylinder.
Rough idle and low power-sounds like it is missing-one cylinder may not be contributing power. Pull the spark plugs and check them for proper gap and wear. If one appears different from the others, that may be the problem cylinder. If it is not firing, it may have black sooty deposits on the end of it. From unburned fuel in the cylinder. If you have a miss, check your secondary ignition: the spark plugs and plug wires and the distributor cap and the rotor. and the high tension wire from the coil to the top of the distributor cap. If all these are in good shape, do a compression test of the engine. This will tell you the internal mechanical condition of the engine. Good even compression on all cylinders is a healthy engine, and translates to good power output. Don't pay $150-200 for a test from a shop. Buy a compression test gauge for about $40 and learn how to do it yourself. It is quite easy. Here is one tip for starting: a compression test should be done with engine at normal operating temperature. Pulling a spark plug out of a hot aluminum cylinder head can strip the threads easy. While the engine is cold, loosen the spark plugs and then just tighten them back down a bit. Run the engine until it is hot. Now you can remove the plugs, without fear of ruining the threads. Proceed with the compression test. You tube or google for info on compression tests. Or a repair manual.

SOURCE: Bleeding clutch slave cylinder
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.

SOURCE: Clutch pedal goes to the floor.
you shouldn't br having those issue, its seem you done everything correctly, I would take that new master out and replace it with another new one, hope you still have the reciept. I've seen and have brought many manufacture default many of time because it has been setting on their shelves for long time. if that dont fix the issue check your line it may have small leak somewhere between the master to slave.

You need to PRE BLEED the master cylinder, or you may never get pressure. Parts houses sell little hoses for this purpose.
