Your calipers on the correct sides with the bleeder facing up?

Are you refilling the Brake Fluid Reservoir before it runs out of fluid? If you don't keep an eye on that, you will find yourself pumping air into the lines when the brake fluid gets low.

gotta be sure all the air is out of the master cylinder first. if that is not done correctly, bleeding the system is a giant waste of time.

Brake booster fluid has to leak somewhere, either on the ground or onto the floorboard.
