Its tuff to get the air our once you have it, it should in time clear up. Their are numerous was to get ride of it are to not have it to start off with.

1) Fill the reservoir with fluid to the proper level, with the front wheels lifted are lifted enough so you can turn he steering wheel EZ lock to lock 20 times with the engine off keep a eye on the fluid level.

2) Are as soon as the engine starts turn it off and re-pete till the reservoir stays at the proper level.

3) Are you can pull a vacuum on the reservoir once it stays at the proper level.

4) Are pull the return hose off block the return nipple on the reservoir put the return in a can to catch the fluid,,, keep the reservoir full and have someone start the engine. make sure you do not run the reservoir dry. 1,3,4 its nice to have a helper that can will understand stop, turn off now.

You can also install a inline filter if need be....

You can leave the fill plug out and over the next few days/week turn the steering wheel lock to lock a few times engine off to help bleed the air out of the system...

The best prevention is to not induce air from the get go... Once you have it, its hard to get rid of....
