I have within the last 2 months changed out everything to do with the clutch. It started not wanting to go into gear. Now it will not go into gear at all makes a grinding noise. When all the work was done on the clutch I did not change the master clutch cylinder. I just changed it out, and bled it for over an hour. It is still not going into gear. The pedal has plenty of pressure and it is moving. There is engaging but no disengaging. Could there still be air in it? Or could the slave cylinder be bad already? Or could it just be the transmission is shot?
Do you

If its moving before the clutch job then no problem with the tranny.

If the clutch does not release completely when the clutch pedal is fully depressed, the disc will continue to turn the input shaft. This may prevent the driver from shifting the transmission from neutral into gear, cause grinding when the gears are changed or cause the engine to stall when coming to a stop.

A clutch that will not release may have a misadjusted linkage, a broken or stretched release cable, a leaky or defective slave or master clutch cylinder, air in the hydraulic line or cylinders, or corroded, damaged or improperly lubricated input shaft splines. Other problems include a worn pilot bearing/bushing, a worn bearing retainer, bent or worn release fork or pivot ball, bent clutch drive straps, bent or distorted clutch disc, an improperly installed clutch disc or clutch, or mismatched clutch components (new installation).

Yes, it was fine before the clutch job. It was slipping and needed to be replaced. It has driven fine for 2 months, and then it started to give me problems going into gear and then finally won't go into gear at all with the grinding. So, yesterday I changed out the master clutch cylinder since that was the only thing that I had not changed 2 months before. It didn't seem to help. How do you know if it has been bled enough?

Try rebleeding it from the clutch slave and adjust the free play and pedal height and see what happens-don't work I'm afraid you have to go back in and investigate.
