Question about 1994 Saturn Sl
The idle is high then goes down in a few but as soon as i put it in gear to go it stalls could it be o2 sensor?
Doubt it's the O2 sensor.More likely an issue with your IAC(Idle Air Control) motor.Quite often they get plugged up with carbon and stick in position.

I went through this scenario while working in a toyota sienna a few months ago and it ended up being the battery. When battery supply voltage starts to drop the PCM will limit voltage to certain areas.

My 2001 Saturn SC2 would randomly rev itself, i did a diagnostic test at auto zone and found the temp. sensor was going out fixed the problem. Ya its fun when your car keeps going when you let off the gas O_o. Hope this helps!

In 99% of the cases of GMs doing that it's the Idle Air Control motor, which you already changed. But changing it does not always fix the problem. First, if you bought the new IAC motor second hand, change it again cause last time i had to change mine 3 times before i got one that worked OK. Second, if it was bought new and/or your are 100% sure the IAC is working fine, then you probably just have to much carbon deposits where the motor's tip and the intake manifold meet and are supposed to seal up, preventing it from closing normally and giving the engine too much air, cause the high RPM idle. So take the IAC out again, clean the opening, lip and everything you can see and get into around that area, with a cue-tip and some contact cleaner, or lighter fluid or rubbing alcohol to get all the carbon deposits out and you should be ok. If not, then the problem probably resides in the car's onboard computer.

SOURCE: 96 Saturn SC1 (automatic): b
If it ran beautiful I don't see why you installed CPS. ???
The CPS and CAS should only be replaced if the car is stalling or shorting out. I just changed the CAS on my 95 Talon but only because it was cutting off like I turned the key off.
If the only thing you did was change the CPS then it's not lined up right. Every car is different but the CPS usually has to be aligned.
