Powersteering 2006 6.0 litre

Lost all powersteering, so i changed the pump, Now i have got powersteering, but its intermitent, it cuts in and out what could be wrong with my system? also my belt started chirping a bit, since i changed pump... What should i try next? I bought a steering box and will be changing that out when i get home from the rigs. if anyone could offer me there 2 cents in the meantime that would be great. thanks fellas!

When you replaced the pump did you drain all of the ps fluid to get all of the burnt fluid out so your new pump would have all fresh.
