idle problem (1998 saturn sl2)

Asked by Mar 12, 2016 at 06:03 PM about the 1998 Saturn S-Series 4 Dr SL2 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Well i have a saturn that a manual 5 speed and it
wont idle while the clutch is pushed in. Took it to
autozone and codes came up, missfire on cylinder
2 and oxygen sensor. I cleaned the throttle body
and it idled much better but still wont idle with the
clutch in. Anybody have an idea what that might
be. Car has 287673 thousand miles.

I would say replace which oxygen sensor is bad there's probably 3 in the system determine which one it is, before the cat after the cat. Could be your electronic idle control valve which is a little thing on the throttle body that controls the idle to go up and down.
