In this video we show you how to replace an idle air control solenoid and clean the throttle body on a 1996 Saturn. This car was having a excessively high idle. It would stay at 1500 RPM even though your foot was not on the gas pedal. This was caused by carbon build up around and behind the throttle body as well as a defective idle air control solenoid.

How To Clean The EGR Valve On A GMC Safari Vortec V6 Engine
Here is how to clean the EGR (Exhaust
gas recirculation) valve on a GMC Safari Vortec V6 engine. If your engine
started running really rough all of a sudden, your EGR valve may be stuck

EGR valve gasket with a filter in it to prevent future carbon buildup.
Here is a link to a video I made showing the gasket:

Discussion about this video:

will solve a lot of confusion concerning the operation of the catalytic
converter. These tests work as you can see in the video. So the next time
you have a P0420 or someone tells you your catalytic converter is bad
you'll know what to do to find out if that is indeed the case.

How To Fix A Car That Idles Poorly
This shows you how to potentially fix a high idle, low idle, and or rough
idle. Most modern cars have an idler air control valve (IAC) that can get
gummed-up and you have to clean it. Be aware that unplugging the IAC can
trigger a check engine light (use a scanner or disconnect the battery to
get rid of the light). If you have any questions feel free to ask below. If
this helps also let me know (I like to know when I help someone out!).
This video shows how to remove, clean and reinstall your IAC (Idle Air
