It takes a while for the air to get out of the system.

Keep turning it side to side with the engine running until the bubbles are gone. You have air in the system, if it gets really pink and frothy let it sit for a bit before continuing.

Make sure you are replacing the correct oring, the reason i say this is because there is only One that caused trouble on your car, it's the very easy to replace and it's the power steering inlet oring, it's rite at the pump just remove bolt with 10 mm wrench, remove ps inlet fitted, install new oring (there was a bulletin for the problem) and reinstall hose inlet fitting.. Have never had trouble getting air out of the system, it shuts right up after repair ..
