Kitchen Faucet water bumps (hiccups)

The plumber came out to fix the new faucet and a small leak in one of the fixtures underneath the kitchen sink. Every since then whenever I turn on either the hot or cold water I get for lack of a better expressions the sound of water bumps or hiccups. The water runs you just hear like bumps or hiccups. When I run the sprayer it doesnt do this. I told some people and they say its the water pressure. If so how can it be fixed? I am on a very limited budget.

Plumbing problems are not fixed on "limited budgets". They cost what they cost.

Your situation sounds simplistic; either one of the isolation valves have a loose washer causing the problem or there is an internal problem with the new faucet you bought, could very well be caused by dirt or debri.

If you have high water pressure, meaning anything over 60-80, you will have to install a PRV on the main line to reduce the pressure incoming to the home.

If you had a relatively inexpensive faucet installed, this might be the whole problem in itself.
