    diving tach when turning?

    WHen i am at a stand still and i turn the wheel, my RPM's will dip down to around 300 and the car sounds like it is stalling out but never does. why when the wheel is turned does it effect my RPMs. how can i fix this?
    thanks

    Is your power steering fluid full? When you turn the wheel, the power steering pump needs to produce pressure to assist. If it has to work hard to create pressure, it can drag the engine down. Though ususally the engine computer will adjust the idle appropriately.
