why does my power steer pump still stop?

Asked by Feb 10, 2015 at 10:46 PM about the 2008 Kia Rio LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey guys. I put a new power steering pump on 2008 Rio last week. we bled the system
per the instructions i received with the pump. My problem is that the pump still stops and
squeals when I first start the car for about 10 seconds and anytime I turm the wheels all
the way each direction. Is there something else that can be causing this problem? I've
had the belts replaced about 8000 miles ago.
