Question about 1997 Saturn SC
Replaced engine in 97 Saturn SC and it runs great at idle and on the road. When stopping and when putting in gear it shakes and dies
I would check your MAF and the IAC. Try cleaning your Mass Air Flow sensor which is in the tube that takes air from the air filter to the throttle body (you will see that it is plugged in). Clean it with some cleaner that says it's safe for a MAF. If it's not that and what I am leaning towards would be your IAC valve. The idle air control valve is located on your throttle body and is normally attached with two screws. I would start with the MAF just because it's cheaper but I'm leaning towards the IAC. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!
