Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
You have air in the line so you have to turn the steering wheel left right left right with the engine running to get the air out of the line.this happens after you installed your power steering pump.good luck.my motto is try it you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.lol.i tell myself this all the time.

This is a possible bleed/air in line problem. Open the hood, Open the cap to the power steering reseviour.
See how much fluid is in the tank via the dipstick.
Open the driver door and roll down the window, START the engine, turn the wheel all the way to the right until it stops, immediately turn the wheel left all the way until it stops, then do that one more time if the reseviour was full, if it was NOT full, check the fluid level in tank.
NEXT- See if the fluid level has went down AND look IN the tank to see if there is bubbles/foaming. Fill it up if the level went down if NOT, Don't add any more fluid and with the cap OFF to the tank do that same Step again only holding the wheel(steering) for a 2 second count then Slowly turn wheel the other way and hold again for 2 seconds, REPEAT after checking level/condition(bubbles) of fluid. As the factory recommends that this be repeated 18 more times (R to L) but that should not be necessary just do it 5 more times right to left or vice versa fill fluid to a level between the marks on the dipsick. Center wheels and turn the car off.
Put cap back on and drive as usual, after short drive to the store(it should be fixed), look for leaks under car and recheck the level of fluid= there should be no bubbles, but if there is Small little ones they will work thier way smooth. I pray that this fixes your problem and I would suggest that YOU DO as well, before and during the operation, it seems to work for me.

Forget arcade games they won't help.
It will come with time but what will help is, as someone else suggested, find an empty car park or a large open space.
If possible put down 2 traffic cones or some other marker and keep driving "figure of eights" around them; that will really help.
