Would a leak from the power stering cause a car to sputter or die at idle?

NO... You have other problems. Sounds like WATER is in the fuel.

A malfunctioning battery can't provide enough power to your ignition system when the motor is idling can cause sputtering. If there is not enough gas, that can cause your vehicle to sputter. If the spark plugs fail to fire will also cause your vehicle to sputter.

Lots of things. From misfiring spark plugs to incorrect timing to deposit build up.

Fastening bolts a pulley and power steering fluid lines.

Low of power steering fluid is one possible cause. I urge you to have this looked at by a professional. Loosing your power stering in a turn can cause a serious accident. Do not ignore this as it can be very dangerous. Funny cause Ion's have electric steering and have no fluid resevoir. The problem is in the motor unit, and it is not seerviveable. You will likely need an EPS motor assembly. (Electronic Power Steering)

Water will cause your engine to sputter and lose power within a few miles after getting into your tank. A can of Dry Gas or other like product will remove the water after you drive a few miles.

the most likely cause of that would be the power steering pump failing.

Lossen the serpentine belt. Then remove the power stering pump pulley. Drain the fluid, at the rack would most likely work better. then pull all of the mounting bolts.

try changing fuel filter first. it could also be the catalytic converter. that can get plugged up and cause your vehicle to lose power.

some models did have 4ws,im sure it also cut out at a certain speed.

either look for the power steering pump attached to the engine if you're not sure look for the steering rack or steering box and look for hoses.

if it tends to sputter and have no power i would suggest the fuel pump. it it is only after the car has warmed up, or a while after you start driving it might be the ignition module.
