Engine Performance problem
1999 Saturn SL1 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 196000 miles
I have had this problem for the past several months - when I start the engine it accelerates to around 2000 RPM and hangs there for minutes - it does not drop to the normal idle speed of 7 - 800 RPM. Once the engine warms up it behaves a little better, but not right.
I have a 5 speed manual transmission and when driving and come to a stop and push in the clutch the engine accelerates to 1,500 - 3000 RPM and slowly drops to 700 - but this takes a minute or two.
I can drive along town streets at 30 MPH with my foot off of the gas. - Even then when I push in on the clutch the engine accelerates to 1500 RPM. Only when I come to a stop at an intersection - no forward movement.
Example: driving along at 50 MPH (2200 RPM) and push in clutch ( foot off accelerator) - RPM goes up to 3000 and slowly drops.
I replaced the throttle body and the spring is very strong - but I still have the same problem
have the same problem?
