Question about 1998 Saturn SL
It may be the IAC (Idle Air Control) Valve or the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor), you are better off to take it to a local mechanic to help you better diagnose the problem.

Sounds like you came apart under the hood. Check the linkage and on the drivers side there is a switch called a TPS. The throttle position sensor should have a spring in it. There should be some return action on the linkage too.
There is a cable that works everything from the foot pedal to the engine. If the cable is still attached it must have broken inside.
