hi again, after reading threw all the threds to do with my problem, I found the solution, some1 mention to try an bleed frnt discs by opening valve, push brake,close valve, release brake and repeat, I tried this after an hour or two all the air was out of the lines, an had gd pressure on brake peddle, also checked calipers , they are working well against the rotors and are releasing well so thanks to the answers from those threds cheers.
