The coolant temp sensor is on the driver's side of the engine in the head. If you remove the lid to the airbox and lift the intake tube, you will be able to reach it easily. To remove the connector, you just squeeze it. Then use a socket or a wrench to remove the coolant temp sensor. You will lose some coolant so be ready with the new one or drain the antifreeze before you start.

Take off air breather tube,you should see a cone shaped part, on top and at back of engine right by the gas pedal cable. Remove the 2 10mm bolts, and it should come right off.

The PVC valve is located in the valve cover (top "cover" of the engine, near the oil filler cap) On DOHCs, it is immediatly to the right. On SOHCs, it a few inches to the left.The PVC valve is held to the valve cover with a rubber grommet type seat.
1. Remove the hose that connectes the throttle body unit to the PVC valve.
2. Using your hands, remove the PVC valve from the rubber seat. Wiggle it back and forth, then pull it straight out.
3. You can either clean this with carb cleaner, or simply replace it with a new one (<$5 at most auto stores)
4. Put the PVC valve back into the rubber seat and replace the hose

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?
