Replacing the bleeders doesn't fix the problem, as the car heats up you crack the bleeder screw open to let the air out then close it. It may take a fey times to get it all out.

We have bleed valve quite a few times . Is there a trick to getting all the air out??

crack the bleeder slowly but don't close it immediately, allow a little time for the air to escape.
