Change out your power steering pressure switch. Failure Symptoms: When the power steering pressure switch indicates the system is always on or always off, the engine control computer illuminates the check engine light to the problem. During low speed parking lot maneuvers or when the engine is in idle, turning the steering wheel may cause the engine to bog down, and then surge as the computer overcompensates for the load. In some cases, the vehicle may stall at low speed when the wheel is turned, as the engine computer did not know there was a sudden demand for power and could not compensate fast enough.
