It should bleed it's self with normal driving and turning. I guess you know the distinctive sound of a 'growling' power steering pump. It wouldn't be the first time a re-built pump was bad right out of the box. As long as the fluid is at proper level and the right fluid: ATF

yeah, it didnt do it till i tried to flush the system and it wouldnt quit whining, so i went ahead and change the hose (hose was leaking). No change in noise so i went ahead and replaced the pump and its the exact same low fluid/air sound. Fluid lvls are currect.

wasnt whining before the flush. I turned the wheel to get the fluid from the rack and introduced the cleaner and clean fluid but it whined and wouldnt get any better after starting the flush.
