Question about Saturn SC2
Could be, but if it was you should also have a check engine light staying on. Cranking the engine with the throttle wide open kills the fuel injectors, so it could be getting too much fuel from somewhere.

Have you checked the exhaust for a restriction, it may be a clogged catylictic convertor. Any muffler shop can assist you in checking for a restricted exhaust, they most likely will not charge for it.

Blair, I would take a look at he TPS (throttle position sensor) located on the throttle body. In other words, it sounds as thought sensor when heated is changing its value to "open" or "shorted".
If the car starts OK when cold, use a hair dryer to heat the TPS when the engine is cold to see if you can duplicate the problem.
Also is the a service engine light on? Codes?
If you have a "digital volt/ohm meter" available you can read the variable resistance of the sensor when the problem occurrs to determine if the sensor is defective.

First, disconnect neg battery cable 10 minutes and reattach to clear codes.
Lean condition means it is not getting same fuel as other side of engine.
Since you had it scanned before, try Autozone to see if new results.
You might try a TPS switch which regulates spark and fuel feed. At lower speeds EGR starts to open-you should have code for a problem there.

Try this,apply the emergency before stepping on the brake.
If this helps the pedal,the rear brakes are out of adjustment.

Hello: The number one injector could be stuck open. to check you will have to remove fuel rail with injectors attached, energize fuel pump with key off and see if #1 injector drips/sprays fuel. YOU COULD ALSO SWAP #1 AND #2 injector and see if the misfire goes to #2 cylinder.
