I have 1997 SL1 Idle problem that started last night, I was teaching my wife to dive my Saturn wich is a manual, in doing that she made a few really hard stops and killing the motor. Now when I drive it the engine has a high idle, I do know that saturns take a little time to come down in rpm but this is really abnormal. If for example I'm driving down the road in 3rd or 4th gear at 2200 rpm and I either take it out of gear or push the clutch in (with my foot off the gas pedal), the engine will rev to like 3k rpm it raises in rpm and stays there for a like 5-10 secs and then slowly goes down a little, if I'm coming to a stop it will eventuall settle down to the normal 8-900 rpm at idle but it takes it about 20-30 secs, it never used to do this, it usually took a few secs to get to idle but never like this. And it never increased in rpm when pushing the clutch in with my foot off gas. If I have the engine parked and running at idle and I rev the engine up it immediatly goes back down to idle like it should, its only when I start to let the clutch out or in gear and driving that it starts to react this way, the motor wants to rev higher for some reason. ANy help is appreeciated. I checked for engine codes and there are none.
have the same problem?
