Turn the steering wheel stop to stop slowly at idle about ten times. Keep tabs on the fluid level as it can go down filling the void air took up in the system. Dont keep the wheel in the locked position more then one second as it's bad on the pump.

I did this....and repeated....and repeated many times... no loss in fluid. Looks like my pump is just not strong enough.

I'm going to upgrade to a Legacy GT pump (my car is an L)

and see if it steers any easier
