sputtering faucet

I recently replaced the o-rings and seats in my kitchen faucet. Since then whenever I turn the water it comes out sputtering, sounds like air is mixed in, and in some cases the water slowly goes off, until I turn the handle off then back on, then a gush of water and air comes out and it is then usually fine. My house is only six years old and the faucet is a dual handle type. I am on city water and pressure is fine. No other faucet in the house does this.
Any suggestions?

Try just letting the faucet run.
If there is air trapped in the pipes from when you worked on the faucet, it will eventually clear out.
Good Luck!
