It doesn't sound like a slipping power steering belt. Be sure to post back and let us know what you found out.

Re: Electrical problems maybe???

what year, engine, transmission, how many miles?

Any codes? Does it always do it or only when cold/warm, etc.?

Sounds like a light-load issue, maybe EGR/DPFE, vac. leak, dirty IAT/Throttle plate, dirty MAF, PCV, etc.
