Hi MOOCH52, You may still have a failure within the breaking system. I would start the car and apply the breaks a few times to try to test the master cylinder and booster. I would also bleed the breaks again until you're sure there is no air in the system. Make sure you're using the right break fluid per your vehicle specification. Hope this helps!
