== == There's a pressure switch on the power steering system that's supposed to tell the computer to increase the idle speed when the power steering is being used, since it increases the load on the engine. So, either that switch, or the wiring for that switch, is bad. If that doesn't do it, then you may have crud in the idle air control or the throttle body.
