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. Jonesy's Auto Club videos are for reference and entertainment only and should not be taken as a direct step by step guides. If you attempt a repair like the one seen in this video please use the proper safety equipment, take your time and do the job right.

2000 Saturn LS1, Starting Defect
The anti theft system in the 2000 Saturn LS1, thinks you're trying to steal the car sometimes. You have to wait ten minutes before the 'Security' light stops flashing. Once the security light is not flashing you can start the car. Trying to start the car with the security light flashing will either burn out your starter or deplete your battery!

99 Saturn SC1 EGR clean-up
1999 Saturn SC1, SOHC. I had a P1404 code with the EGR valve. Since it was a brand new EGR valve I pretty much knew that the crud inside the car was plugging up the EGR. Removed the EGR and did a start without it on which is supposed to help 'cough' out some of the carbon deposits in the engine. Hopefully this will keep a code from coming up on the car soon.

How To Fix A Car That Idles Poorly
How to clean a throttle body and Idle air control valve (iac), How to fix a tough idle, running crappy, stalling, low idle, and high idle. ***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!). Codes that can be triggered are, P0401, P0505, P P0507 This video shows how to remove, clean and reinstall your IAC (Idle Air Control) and save a lot of money.

Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
UPDATE 3/21/2014: My car is still working fine. I still have not had a problem with it starting since I posted this video 5 years ago. Still on the same battery. Thanks for all the comments! This is me showing how I cut the passlock wire on my car. My car would not start on damp, cold mornings, often taking 30 - 40 minutes to get it to start. After reading several forums I found users who were doing this to "fix" the problem. I thought I would tape this for anyone who was thinking of doing the same but doesn't know anything about cars. Like me. :) Note: I owe thanks to meron for the post at this link http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f1137a7/83 it is where I first heard about this solution. Update 10.6.2012: I added a switch, I believe it was this one http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062533 I installed it with it in the off position, started the car, switched it to On while the car was running and the service engine light went away. Car started fine after that. I just shut it off again as it was cold one morning this week and I had trouble getting the car started. Once I got it running, turned it off and haven't had trouble starting it since. YMMV
