I recently had my power steering pump replaced. The new one is still occasionally growling and howling like the old one. The shop claims it takes time to break it in. Any truth?

No, but it does need to be bled which takes a while. It's filled with ATF and not power steering fluid, correct?

When I introduce air into the system, I try to run the car on jack stands and turn lock to lock until the noise stops.
