power steering and brakes

alright si i crashed my truck but nothing to bad happend, the onlything that i can see that happednt was the cooler for the power steering cracked so i bought a new one and put it in today. so i toped off the fluid and i now have power brakes again and most of the power steering. when i hit the brakes i can hear and feel some kind of noise from the pump it sounds like and i get the same noise when im turning. is there a way to bleed the system out or is that even the probablem? any help would be great, i have to go to work now so i hope it cears up when i drive it more and i hope nothing gets messed up by me driving it but i have no choice right now.

Jack up the front of the truck. Take off the cap of the powersteering resevior. Top it off, then turn the tires left and right, checking the fluid level often. This is a quick way to bleed the powersteering system. Now if you still have the noise after you do this you may need to bleed the brake booster. Which I never have done so someone else will have to give you that info.
