How does it idle when you first start or idle when hot.
On the top of the air intake tube there is a small screw which should when screwed in speed up the idle and if it dosent work or it idles fine when cold or warm at idle then its your GEARs are binding up and there's not to much you can do about that ........sorry

I, too, have a 2000 Alero 2.4L and am having the same problem, but worse. Whenever I brake to a stop while in Drive, the engine stalls sometimes. I thought it was the torque converter going bad. I tried the cheap fixes first when fuel system cleaner and air filter. I took it to a parts store and they pulled the code. "Service Engine Soon" light came on. "Too Rich Bank 1" was on the screen of their code machine. I was thinking fuel filter on my way to the parts store, but wouldn't a clogged fuel filter make it too lean? I have cleaned my air filter and have ran two tank fulls with "Sea Foam" additive. I have had some better low-idle performance, but it hasn't cured the problem. Today I held the throttle down at 1,500 RPM in Park to see if it was running steady, and the engine began to stall! I had to let off the throttle so that it wouldn't stall. That's when the "Service Engine Soon" light came on. About a year ago, I had the fuel injectors professionally cleaned at a shop. Is the throttle actually electro-mechanical? Is there a throttle relay or servo that's going bad?

Tips for a great answer:
First off, is a check engine lite on,if so do you know the codes?It does have a cam sensor,the cam sensor malfunction gives a code reading,in general fuel probs do not give a code this is done bymanually checking fuel press ect....the module does give specific codes as well...I have seen a cam sensor give the prob. you list, BUT TEST BEFORE YOU BUY,you can get your own codes from the a.l.d.l connector,under dash...take a coated jumper wire and push one end into the g .circuit ,the other into the b terminal and watch the lite flashig in the dash,,ie, 2 flashes...pause then 4 flashes is an example....wilf
