odd whirring noise coming from where? the water pump? reservoir? your title says "odd noise power steering" so is it coming from power steering?

Since you had to remove the reservoir, it is most likely air in the lines. It should work itself out over time. Turning the steering wheel lock-to-lock will also help work it out.

yeah, sounds like air in the lines. however, are there any clicks or knocks when turning from wheel-lock to wheel-lock?
