With fluid full, turn the steering wheel back and forth 4 or 5 times to bleed air out. Any leak in the system can continue to suck air in though. Also, check belt tension. If belt is slipping, that will create the same symptom as a failing pump. If all of that is ruled out, it's probably a bad pump.
