1998 ford expedition booster new master cylinder new all disc break new break peddle goes to floor after bleeding hole system

You can bleed the system all you want and STILL have the pedal go to floor unless the master cylinder was bench bled in a vice BEFORE it was put on the vehicle. ALWAYS bench bleed a master cylinder before you put it in service. If you don't, you'll never get the pedal off the floor.

Check the vacuum line on the power brake booster, the diaphram may be pushing the air down the rod, the break booster may be defective all together if the vacuum line is intact.

You either have air in the line or your vacuum booster needs replaced. Try to bleed them first. Then pull the vacuum line of the booster and see if it makes a change. Good luck.

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.
