OLDSMOBILE INTRIGUE ENGINE PROBLEM

1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue • 112,000 miles

Sister left for work when the power steering starting making all kinds of noise. I brought it home and see it was leaking ps fluid pretty bad. I pulled the lines, flushed them out and made sure there were no leaks, replaced the power steering pump. When at idol, it's hard to turn and makes really bad noises but when the engine is rpm is increased, it's normal. Same with driving. It's only when sitting still while turning without the engine rpm higher that it makes bad noises and acts like there is no power steering. I did turn the wheel from right to left and back with engine running to bleed the air out of the lines. Fluid level is fine and no leaks.

What could be causing this problem?
