Question about 2001 Saturn SL
This may be caused by a dirty MAF sensor, buy a can of MAF spray cleaner, it is made bt CRC corp. all the auto parts stores carry it now, remove the MAF from the rubber air intake hose and spray it all around the inside of the sensor, then try and see if this cures the problem, While at the parts store ask them to show you the MAF and then ask to have a OBD 2 test run for trouble codes, if there are any post them back here on this same thread.

Here are the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and/or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving
