There is a bleeder valve on the top of the caliper. Have another person pump the brake (WHILE THE CAR IS OFF) until the brake is solid with pressure. Now have them continue to apply pressure by slowly turning the bleeder valve counter clockwise until you hear air or see fluid being expelled. Once the brake pedal pumper has pushed the peddle to the floor have him keep pressure on the peddle until you re-tighten the bleeder valve. DO NOT HAVE HIM RELEASE PRESSURE WHILE THE VALVE IS OPEN or air can make its way to the master cylinder. Start with the tire furthest away from the master cylinder and work towards it. I know you are thinking, "but only one caliper has air in it". This does not matter once air is induced into the brake system. Each and every caliper must be bled to maintain safety and failure to do so can cost your your life along with someone elses.

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.

Did you bench bleed the master cyl. before installing it? then when you installed the new master, did you bleed all 4 points? If yes, then check all for points for leaking caliper/s and leaking wheel cylinder/s. If the van has ABS, check the valve body for a bleeder screw and see if air bleeds out of it. If you've checked everything twice and did everything right then your new master cyl. may be defective.

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.
