Dizzy 2004 Saturn ion 2.2 manual transmission little to no clutch pedal

We have a 2004 Saturn ion 3 we have replaced the clutch flywheel slave cylinder clutch master cylinder and had it bled by the GM dealer and there is very little clutch pressure still runs and drives but has Half to 1 3rd the clutch pedal as our other ion 3 and canít seem to figure it out.. We have checked the Clutch pedal assembly and is had a very little bit of play I shamed it and put the master cylinder balls clipped back in the pedal and it just feels like you push the pedal halfway or more and then you get pressure..

Any help or input would be very much appreciated as we do not want to damage the transmission.. we have this one that has 210,000 miles (herís) and mine thatís got 283,000 miles.. we love the cars they get good MPG and the have some pep to them for being 4 bangers

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You need to vacuum bleed the clutch. The vacuum needs to be pulled from the reservoir, leave bleeder screw closed. attach vacuum tool in way to the top of the reservoir that is air tight. pull the vacuum 2 mins, release, pump the clutch several time, and repeat several times. the vacuum tool needs to pull 26-27 inches. Hand type pumps may not work. I use a tool that works with shop air.

If the is still low then the clutch system still may have air in it.
Note most technicians don't know how to bleed these systems. did you share the information above with the technician (not the service advisor)? Is it fixed now and if so what done to fix it?
