Almost stalls while idling?

I was just outside messing with my Wrangler and it was idling between 700 and 1000 RPM. Whenever I turned the wheel to the right, the RPM would drop to 500 or a little lower and almost stall. I had the clutch in neutral and had the 4WD in 4L. If this is a problem or something to look in to, I would appreciate the help.

I am not sure about the turning the wheel to the right part... but my 89 YJ (carb) was idling terribly and I did all kinds of stuff and finally decided that it must be the carb was not getting the right mixture... so I started playing with those two screws on the front of the carb and played back and forth with them till it idles very nicly now (little high) at 1000rps? that might be all it is or...

It is a 94 YJ, 2.5 4Bang Not 100% sure but i think injected. it idled fine for a little while and then it would try to stall but then pick itself back up after a split second. it wasn't 1000 rp's but it was between 500 and 1000. where would a leak be?
