Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds like there is still air in the system or air is being drawn in somewhere. if this happened after replacement and was not there before replacement for a different problem then it was created when the replacement parts were installed. it could be a seal causing it.

You may want to read bleeding instruction at this link, it may shed some light.

Did you bleed the system? When you replace the the master and/or slave cylinder you have to bleed the system just as you would with brakes. There is a bleed screw on the slave cylinder. Open the bleed screw, have a helper depress and hold the clutch pedal down.Tighten the bleed screw, then release clutch. Repeat this procedure until you have removed all air from the system and the clutch pedal is firm. Keep an eye on the fluid level to avoid sucking air into the system. If you have done this, remember there is a possibility that the master or slave cylinder is defective.

You cannot bleed these clutch hydraulics. They are meant to be a pre-bled sealed unit that you buy. You should never replace just the slave or the master. Buy them both and replace them as one unit which is already bled from the factory. Otherwise you will experience what you are describing.
Make sure you install the slave cylinder (into the transmission hole) first and then the master cylinder (pedal side) next and do not hook up the pedal until everything is installed.
If you take the slave out with the pedal attached it will extend the rod and ruin the hydraulics rendering them useless.
