    I have the same problem and my car has 195000 miles. I changed the throttle position sensor, idle air control, and thoroughly cleaned the throttle body. Immediately after that, the "engine" light came on resulting in codes 341 and 507 (amshaft speed sensor and high idle issue). As I have no diagnostic equipment, I am forced to bring it to a reputable shop for diagnosis and computer reprogram. Will keep you posted.

    Your car may be equipped with a cold start feature that keeps it running at a higher rpm when it is cold. Does this stop after driving it for a while? If so it is normal.

Pull the engine coolant temp sensor, I know it sounds funny but do it if your looking at the engine it is located on the right side of the head.. chances are the ceramic tip on the sensor is cracked.. 15 dollar fix or so should take away from the high idle.. let me know how it works

My 1997 Saturn SW1 will not shift into 2nd, 3rd,


The cables attach near the back of the transaxle. You may be able to see them under the brake lines. You will probably need to remove the air intake from the throttle body to get good access.

High idle/low idle pattern


This issue is caused by the egr valve being stuck open, more than likely. Just remove it and clean the plunger on it. Also clean out the two ports that are in the intake. Check out saturnfans.com for more information. I hope this helps.
