SOURCE: 99 Saturn SL 1 stall on startup
I'm not sure what I did, but after I had cleaned out the throttle body (I'm sure thats not what did it, since it was pretty clean to begin with) and took it for a drive it was jerking alot and the check engine light had come on, I took another look and seen I had not plugged back in a sensor thing (I assume thats what it was LOL) which after plugging back in fixed the check engine light and the jerking. As for the stall out on start up thats gone and replaced with a new problem. When I start the car now it roars to life and the rpm thingy jumps up to 3000 and slowly works its way back down to 1500 which is higher than it ran before I fiddled with the throttle body. I'm assuming I bumped something while putting it back together. also when i put it in park or slow down alot it jumps way up as well. So no more startup problems now I have a gas guzzling problem LOL. Is this going to hurt my car any or am I simply burning up more gas than needed and nothing more?

Look on the throttle body for a little cylinder with an electrical connector on it. Use the handle of screwdriver to give that a few whacks while someone starts the engine after it starts, give a few more whacks. Engine running now? Replace the Intake Air Control motor. or IAC.

do you have a K&N air filter system some times oil from the filter will get on the air mass flow senso and wont let it start. If it does try cleaning air mass flow sensor and some of the oil on K&N filter
