Default clutch slave cyl help

ok so im outside trying to bleed the clutch and im pretty damn sure that the piston in the slave cyl is supposed to push out when pressing down the clutch. its doing nothing.. i beleive that the rubber boot around it is leaking because there is a small puddle of fluid under the slave cyl... my slave cyl is brand new and came preassembled.

why wont my clutch bleed at all.. nothing but fluid is coming out

So, when you are pushing the clutch down, you do have the bleeder valve closed right?

Sucks. Either a) your bleeder is unscrewed, b) your clutch line is cross-threaded or fucked in some way, or c) you got really bad luck and have a bad seal or a scored cylinder from the factory. (unlikely)

Its a clutch, its the simplest thing to bleed. Hook hose to bleeder put it in clear glass cup of brake fluid open it and pump and pump and pump and check fluid level and pump, when its clear of bubbles close bleeder, done!
