Make sure the system is full of fluid and that your PS pump belt is good.
To bleed the system:

-open your steering fluid reservoir and observe the level.
-with the engine off, turn the wheel from lock to lock 5 or more times
-look at the level again and add more if necessary.
-do the wheel turning thing again
-turn on the engine
-turn the wheel from lock to lock 5 or more times, again
-look at the fluid level and add more if yoo need to.
-replace the reservoir cap.

Alot of power streering pumps wine when they are starting to go or there is excessive pressure required to turn the wheel

Did you check the level? Is it low?

If you're not sure, first look at the outside of the bottle (left hand side of engine compartment)..... if you can't see through it to see the fluid level, take the power steering cap off, along with the 2 filters, and look in the bottle. Is there fulid in it? If it's empty, you probably have a leak somewhere. If it isn't empty and your power steering pump is still making noise, it's probably time to replace the pump.
