Default Mercury Sable 3.0 power steering problems

I know it's not a jeep but having problems with my car. It's a 2001 mercury sable with 3.0 v6 (same as ford Taurus). I put a different engine in it and it runs great but I can't get the power steering to work right. No matter what I do I can't get all the air out of the system. Seems like every time you start it more air gets in. The ps works but is noisy and after you drive it and when you shut it off it builds pressure and shoots fluid out of the cap. I have tried more than 1 ps pump and it does the same thing. Any help would be appreciated!
