    That is weird. Does it make a whining sound when you turn the wheel?

    Power steering could be leaking/empty, check and see how much fluid you have. What do u mean stalling? Does the engine cut out?

    Happened to my 05. Power steering pump went bad. You'll see bubbles in the reservoir.
    Don't rebuild, just replace the damn thing.
