Use an Eezybleed to bleed the system.
Have the callipers been redone? If so check if the left and right 
calliper have not been mistakenly confused, and fitted up side down. It 
will be neigh impossible to bleed the system in that case. I am not sure

If the callipers have not been redone, overhaul them (and fit them the 
right way), they may suck in air when pressure is released and seal 
properly when pressure is applied.
