The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.

The pedal itself is the sensor. It is all one assembly called the accelerator pedal position sensor. If you are getting a code for this or the throttle position sensor don't assume either are at fault. There are many problems with wiring and the throttle body assembly which contains the throttle position sensor so a thorough diagnosis is needed before any parts should be put on.

SOURCE: location of the evaporative cannister solenoid? 2003 saturn vue

Depends if the engine is 3.0 or a 2.2?
3.0 purge is on the top, back side of the intake. Black, cylinder. Looks the same on a 2.2, but is located next to the air filter.

If it is a 2.2 Auto it has a VT25E Trans,A really bad experiment from G.M.There is no dipstick.The only way to check it per service is to remove the center part of the main drain plug while running in park,if fluid drains or trickles out they say it's full.You probally have other Issues inside the trans.Check your mileage they have a special coverage period for this Trans through Saturn Dealer!! They May cover it or do a partial coverage for you.Hope this helps

SOURCE: Bad idle on 2002 Saturn Vue

make sure you have no hoses on the engine that fell off listen for a hissing at idle. If all ok and you checked for codes which should be done before any parts are replaced then the most likely cause is the Idle Air Control Valve. (IAC). IAC's usually wont set a code.

Car has in a fuel injected 1500 cc engine ,hard to start and uneven idle usually jump from 1500 to 3000 rpms when it should be idling


You probably have a bad Idle Air Control Valve (IACV). If it does not control the idle correctly , you can find yourself driving 50 MPH with out touching the gas pedal. The IACV is located on the throttle control valve and is typically held on by two or three small screws. The price for an IACV can run from $25 to $500. I purchased a throttle body for $40 , removed the IACV, and saved $400.

All you need to do is hold your foot on the gas pedal to start and hold to keep engine running, hold gas pedal for about 3 minutes then let idle, computer needs to relearn the idle speed thats why it stalls out, hope this helps,

1995 jaguar xj6 stalls once you stop at the stop signs


Look for an IAC sensor (motor) Idle Air Control.
Usually located on side & front of throttle body. Not 100% sure which type you'll have but if you have pintle type (pointed end) Remove it, spray it well with throttle body cleaner as well as port it came from, and retry. If it cures it temporarily & starts to do it again, replace it.

The car starts and immediately stalls unless I


Hey Jruthesq

The 850 is equipped with an Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) which supplies the engine with air when idleing (a necessity since the main throttle body valve is completely closed when no throttle is applied, thus the engine would lack air without the IACV when idleing). The IACV is suspended in a rubber mount on the front of the throttle body itself, and is easily removed and inspected/cleaned. If it's dead a good cleaning usually gets it going again. Also make sure that the air from the IACV is unhindered on its way from the IACV to the throttle body (it's actually common for the holes in the throttle body to be gunked up so bad by hardened carbon deposits that one sometimes needs a nail or even a drill to open it up again).

Just thought I'd mention this since you said that the gas needs to be feathered for the engine to start. When you press down on the gas the main valve in the throttle body opens up, closing the IACV and supplying the engine with enough air.

Oh and if your fuel pump relay is a green one marked 103 you should replace it with the new and improved red one. The relay is located under the fuse box cover under the hood. Remove the 4 torx srews holding the cover in place and you'll see the relays under there.

Good luck mate!

Wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed


Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.
