I have a 1993 Saturn SL2 4dr Sedan 210,000 miles. I replaced every sensor my idle has been erratic for the past 3 months I cleaned the throttle body, fixed all Vacuum leaks, My car idles at 1500 RPM'S and I have to hit the gas pedal to kick it down now recently I replaced the fuel pump relay it was good for 2 days but now it's doing it again. Also replaced the accelerator cable. Any suggestions. No problems with the transmission just the idle.
Do you

I replaced the IAC, TPS, EGR Valve, MAP sensor, O2 sensor, I had a code 22 for the TPS but that has been gone since I replaced the sensor.

It wasn't the fuel relay I replaced it was the fuse I swapped them for another and it worked fine for 2 days but now the high idle is back.

Alright if you replaced the iac and your sure there are no vacuum leak's I would replace the coolant temp sensor and inspect the connector and make sure it's not corroded. The sensor is screwed in the head below where the upper radiator goes on. There are two you want to replace the bottom one with two wires going to it there is a black wire and a yellow wire going to it. If the connector is corroded you will have to replace the connector too. When there corroded they usually turn green or blue where the connector meets the sensor. The sensors are 10 and they fail pretty often sometimes they leak coolant into the connector also thats why I want you to inspect the connector. Let me know how it runs with the new sensor.

I had to order the wires (dealer part) for the sensor they will be in on Monday. The wires cost more then the sensor. But I will let you know by Tuesday evening.

All you have to do is unplug the connector and see if the connector is green or blue.
