I called a local shop and they said the labor would be $30.00 and the part could range from $20 - $50 depending on the brand (anywhere from $40 - $80).
The stealer (dealer) said that the part will be $25.00 and the labor is $121.00 = $146.00!
Hope this video helped save you some money.

Saturn Idle problem.mov
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.
