Exclamation need help big time

ok i own a 98 dodge ram 1500 4x4. when i bought the truck i had the brake fluid flushed cause there was what looked like dirt in it. then a week later i looked in canitster and stuff in there so i thought that jiffy lube didnt do the job so i took it back and they flushed twice while i was there. so a week went by and my brakes started to feel sluggish i would have to to mash pedal to floor to brake. being that the truck was so old i decided to change everything. so i took it to a mechanic and had brake flush,new master cylinder not rebuilt, all brakes pads new and all adjusted, new rotors new bleeders, checked brake lines and nothing thru out truck meaning no air holes that i could see,no cracks.must of went thru what seemed like a gallon of fluid when bleeding no air and no change plus i have abs and brake light on can someone help me.ive talked to different mechanics and all have said bleed brakes but i know that cant be it.

They're right, you do need to bleed the brakes. What they don't seem to know is that you have to bleed the brakes, run a brake bleed routine of the HCU via scan tool and then bleed the brakes again.
