The power steering problem is not related to the engine stall. They do not occur together.
The power steering pump fails randomly while the engine is operating. The only way to get it to work again is to shut down the engine and then restart it. My research shows that the power steering pump may be an electrical pump. I am not able to find a fluid reservoir.
