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.

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 Find A Vacuum Leak - EricTheCarGuy
Vacuum leaks are one of the biggest causes of engine performance problems. This video is pretty straight forward in it's approach to finding a vacuum leak. On thing I might mention is that not all vacuum leaks are at the engine. Some HVAC systems run on engine vacuum and can cause a leak under the dash in some cases. I've even seen vacuum operated door locks. Just be sure to be careful spraying flammable stuff on a hot engine, you don't want to take one problem and make it a whole lot worse. You can also use a spray bottle with water to do this same test. It may not be as effective, but you don't have to worry about spraying a flammable substance on a hot engine.

Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this video in response to it. There are many different configurations of throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts store. One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle (DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle. If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my website. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/faq/solving-automotive-idle-problems The best place for answers to your automotive questions: http://www.ericthecarguy.com BowlingBalOutl's channel http://www.youtube.com/user/bowlingballout Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy?fref=ts Twitter: https://twitter.com/EricTheCarGuy Google+: https://plus.google.com/100195180196698058780/posts Information on Premium Membership: https://www.ericthecarguy.com/premium-content-streaming-etcg-content Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

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!

How to Seafoam your vehicle (Also called Top Engine Clean)
This is a carbon deposit cleaner that when used can help eliminate the carbon deposits that build up in the top end of your engine block. I perform this about every 15,000 miles on my own vehicle. Steps to seafoaming: 1. Bring your vehicle up to normal operation temperature 2. Separate seafoam canister into 3 equal parts (one will be for sucking through a pvc line or brakeBooster line, one for gas tank, and one for putting in the oil filler cap) 3. Locate the PVC valve that runs through the intake manifold, for this is where you will initially suck 1/3 of the seafoam canister through. (If PVC is non accessible then you can use your brake Booster line in the same manner.) 4. Once engine is at normal operational temperature, have another person sit in the drive seat and bring the engine RPM up to around 1500. 5. Pull your PVC off (or brake Booster line) and start slowly sucking 1/3 of the seafoam in through either of these locations. Be cautious & steady handed, you don't want to stall the engine out. 6. Once you've sucked all of the 1/3 portion up turn the engine off & replace pvc or brake Booster to its original housing. 7. Once engine is off, unscrew your Oil Filler cap & pour 1/3 of the seafoam in as if it were oil. 8. Unscrew gas cap and put the remaining 1/3 seafoam in. 9. Leave the car alone for 15 minutes. 10. Come back to the car and start it up, let it idle for about 10-15 seconds and then BRING ENGINE RPMS TO A STEADY 2000-3000RPM for no more than a couple minutes. (major revving or fluctuation can knock carbon deposits loose so please keep a steady foot) 11. Once this is complete, take your car for a 10-15 mile drive, while doing so make sure to bring the engine through its total rev band spectrum to make sure all the carbon deposits have been cleaned out. 12. Once the drive is complete, bring the car back home. 13. CHANGE YOUR OIL & FILTER & SPARKPLUGS WITH KNOWN GOOD OEM SPEC PARTS. (The reasoning behind this is that the seafoam lowers the viscosity of your oil, thus weakening its ability to control wear on your engines major mating surfaces and your plugs get buggered up with carbon after this tuneup due to the carbon coming loose during the tuneup.. So an Oil/Filter change & Spark Plugs are a must after seafoaming is complete 14. Tune Up is complete!
