When you turn the steering wheel, you place a load on the engine, on the power steering line is a power steering switch, This informs the ECM to increase the IAC (idle air control). You may have a problem with the IAC valve, but the sure way to do it is with a scan tool that does Ford key on engine running test.

I agree I would suspect either the power steering pressure switch or an issue with the idle air control valve.
