Try pulling the engine coolant temp sensor, They often crack not sure why but the ceramic tip cracks makes the car hard to start, or won't start, the car's idle may race while shifting gears, and often smokes. The sensor is on the right side of the engine when looking at it on the head. Easy to change and get too

This is a canister oil filter system.
It's located up front of the engine on the right side. It's half way down and it has a Black Plastic Cap. It's takes a big socket to unscrew. I can't remember what size, maybe 1 1/4.
Fram filter# CH9018

The best possible thing I could advise you to do would be this. Sometimes they can do it over the phone. Tell them that you are having issues with your radio being locked. Usually they can look up by your VIN number and get you your unlock code. Otherwise you will have to take it to the dealer and have them hook up their vehicle scanner (Tech-2) and they will be able to fix it. Everyone on the internet has their own secret ways about how to obtain these codes, but with it comes to GM the best way is to take it to a dealer.

For old models, Saturn/GM also used the same material
fiberglass gasket in your model, you almost certainly have a leak from
a crumpled, sucked-in gasket as I suffered (and many others). I would
say going to Saturn dealership to make repairs is probably not good
idea if they are going to put in the same GM intake gasket part. Maybe
possible to specify Felpro gasket with whatever shop you go to if you
don't do the repair yourself. I would not go too long with your car in
that condition as there is localized leaning at your cyl-3, that could
cause a burnt exhaust valve there.
The exhaust is extra hot venting out that cylinder. P0303 is misfire at cyl-3. Mine was P0301 (cyl-1). You may get P0507 once in a while when PCM fails to control the fast idle caused by the leak under certain conditions. Most of the time, it is very slow idle caused by 3 cylinders running. You run smoother in cold idle because the IAC opens up to increase idle and end up lowering the manifold vacuum, so the reduced vacuum causes less leaking at the failing intake manifold gasket.
I'd say try cleaning everything with your ignition before replacement; Idle problems could be caused by engine coolant sensor (ECTS). Are you sure it was changed? Did they put on a new wire connector along with it?
