Default Slight Issue

I have been having minor problem. Its not really bad but I am curious to what it is. I recently came back from some highway driving. When I got to the exit, I coast it while turning the wheel and it felt like the motor had a misfire. Did the exact same thing as I was backing in the driveway. If I do city driving, it doesn't happen. Just happens when I do highway driving.

I did a full tune up when I got the truck back in Feb. The PS pump has fluid in it. Nothing is obstructing the wheels when I turn. Pump doesn't whine but I feel like its the original as its real raggy looking.

Truck has 161400 miles. Was also curious, the IAC is suppose to open up if it detects a load (PS, A/C, load on alt, etc). Would that have anything to do with the misfire feel I get?

The IAC is always open but how much depends on the load on the engine. Have you cleaned your throttle body and IAC/passages lately?

I had "dunked" the TB in CRC Gunk Cleaner during the summer for a day then cleaned it up, re-installed the TB and sensors. That was done around 158k ago.

I don't think your truck has a power steering pressure sensor on it, but check and see. If it has one and it's bad, that could explain the problem.
