It takes a while to work the spurts and sputters out. If there is still a lot of air on the pressure side of the system, the pump won't shut off either. Turn on all your faucets and let the water run until the spurts and sputters quit before troubleshooting anything else. If it never quits, then I agree with minggat, air leak on the suction side.
