Acting funny

I was going thru the drive thru at taco bell tonight and it kinda wanted to die. When I stopped and had it in drive the rpms would drop to about 500-400, the oil guage would drop almost to the red, and the check guages light comes on. It wouldnt die but it seems like it was trying. It only happens once in a while. Which is kinda confusing. When I put it N or P it would idle right back up. Also, sometimes when im not moving and I turn the steering wheel it will do almost the same thing but not as bad. Any ideas?????

the tach normally drops below idle speed when its in gear and not moving...even my 31k SC does it. oil gauges acting funny are a hallmark of some sc's & xr7's in my experience. wanting to stall when u turn tho reminds me of something i think i read in a tech article. maybe you can find something in that section.

Sounds to me like you may need to set your idle speed up a lil bit...You may also want to find out what that CE light stands for by running for codes...It should be in the memory. Also, if you turn your wheels you are putting a load on the eng. at the pwr. Steering pump, this would explain any change in idle...It should recover via IAC though...
