REPLACED THE SLAVE CYLINDER AND NOW IT HAS TROUBLE GETTING IN GEAR.

2006 Ford Mustang • 77 miles

Replaced the Slave recently there is good clutch pressure. But I have to force it into gear. When the clutch is pressed there is a slight squeal as if rubber is rubbing rubber. Before I even get it in gear the tires will spin (the car is off the ground)

I have attempted to bleed the system multiple times with no luck. Small bubbles came up once every three bleeds. It is still making a rubber on rubber noise. When I attempt to but it in gear the rear tires begin to spin. I do not have to entirely put the shifter in gear to get the tires to spin. Hard to shift it to gears 3, 4, 5 when car is on.

When the clutch is pressed periodically there will be what looks like evaporated brake fluid escaping from the master cylinder
