Power steering stops and engine cuts off. Has happened twice and only when slowing down and try to turn corner. The coolant light keeps coming on also.

Since you did not provide a motor size, I assume it is a 4 cyl.

Could be vacuum leak causing the stalling or a bad iac motor. When the motor stall, you loose the power steering. Normal operation.

The low coolant light is the overflow tank is low. Have the system checked for a leak.
