IAC I very possible. EGRs are a sore spot with these cars too. Clean em both.

Coolant temp sensors are known problems and will cause high idles/ Easy and cheap fix. Get the updated brass tip design from saturn. Also check the wiring plug for corrosion. Clean or replace it also.

Good luck and let us know. : )
