I'm gonna try to pressure bleed fromthe bottom,I have a feeling the mastercylinder by the Pedel isn't keeping the pressure because the slave is fine. If all fails I'll change the master.

Finally got it! Had to pressure bleed it from the bottom. Here's what I did!

1. Took an empty brake fluid bottle, cut it in half.
2. Took an old fuel pump that I had lying around, got
a rubber hose and connected it to the "out" side.
3. Placed the pump into the bottle.
4. Put the rubber hose onto the bleed nipple and slacked it.
5. Bunjee tied the clutch pedel up
6. turned the pump on and waited till the brake fluid resovoir started to run over.
7. Tightened up the bleed nipple, took off the hose and BAM! the clutch was back!

Thanks for your help guys!

found New issues!
there's a little pump underneath the car right by the drives side rear wheel, that's leaking fuel like crazy!
Rear brake lines are rusted.
Car has a missfire, bad injector? Time for M50 injectors?
And thermostate need changing! Hopefully that's all. Cuz I really dont wanna spend more
money on this car. Probably gonna end up selling it after I fix all the little things.

That's it for now. I'll post pics of the car tonight! Hopefully I can hit the first e30 meet and still be in decent condition!

Thanks again!

Yeah, or you could have put it on the same way it came off, which means the bleed screw is on the top of the cylinder.... hence all the fluid fills up the cylinder, air comes out the top, until the brake fluid comes out... no more air = clutch working. Just like a brake caliper. Anyways...

There was no way this slave would fit the other way..the old one was facing down and when I tried to put it facing up because it makes more sense being up..the line would hit the tranny and it wouldn't bolt up..I didn't feel like getting another line made up..I don't know if someone did it before and switched it up cuz it's my first time doing one on am e30..but I'm just glad it works!

I have the same issue with my clutch now. I was actually going to post a question about it.

The bleeder is located facing down, that I know for sure.

Are you absolutely sure the rod is sitting in the "Divot"?
Does the slave cylinder have any special way of going in? It seems like I have pressure and it bleeds just fine but my pedal only comes back half way and that's it.
