    The gismo that steps up the idle speed when you turn on the air conditioning
    is not working.

    When you turn the wheel as far as it can go, you are forcing the power
    steering pump to try to force the steering arm past the stops. This makes
    it harder for the engine to turn the power steering pump. If you keep doing
    this, you will damage something. Always back off a little bit with the
    steering wheel when it hits the stop. The engine should not stall, though.
    It sounds like you need a tune-up.
