First thing to check if your slave is bled is the pressure plate athoue the clutch may have pressure, it dose not always engage the clutch all the way witch would cause slamming of the clutch. Anothing thigs to check on those if you have had you clutch changed resintly make sure that the proper clutch has been in stalted because there are a couple diffrent choise. If that's not it all I can think of is your slave is low on fluid. Hope this helps you. If not it was a start.
