No pressure on clutch

Clutch/pressure plate replaced on my Saturn Vue 2.2L 2wd standard transmission. The clutch has no pressure allowing me to use the clutch. I can shift it when engine isn’t running, but not when it is running. Clutch line is clipped into transmission. This wasn’t a problem prior to replacing parts.

Air in the clutch system, bad clutch master or slave, improper clutch installation… pretty much any of these might be the problem.

What does the shop tech who installed the new clutch ass’y say? Did it work ok at first, but now isn’t working? Is the clutch master cylinder filled to the proper level?

Not sure what that means. This isn’t a cable actuated clutch, right?
