Question about Cars & Trucks
Slave cylinder should be on the left side of the bellhousing (follow the line from the clutch master if necessary) If you don't see fluid but you have lost some, also check where the rod from the pedal goes through the firewall to the master...they often leak there and will not drip on the ground.

if the fluid hasn't gone down, then likely no leak. therefore suspect either a mechanical linkage problem, or a by-pass problem.
Start by checking the linkage to the master cylinder to make sure that the pedal is actually actuating it.
Other possible causes are:
air trapped in the system which will give a spongy feel to the pedal;
fluid by-passing the piston, I'd expect that if the by-pass was in the slave, the pedal would have some resistance.
you can bleed the clutch system but need something like a radiator pressurising pump to pressurise the system (pump once or twice only to avoid over-pressurising! and don't let reservoir get empty) Otherwise it's just like bleeding brakes.
Hope this helps, if it does please give me a "thumbs up"!
