Default Re: 99 saturn SL1 idle issue/ Sporadic fluctuating power

Thanks. I tried changing the plugs and wires this past weekend. The old plugs were pretty bad. But there was no noticeable difference. Nonetheless it was probably a good idea to change them anyway. I forgot to use dialetic grease but i did use the anti-seize around the threads. So I guess this weekend I will do the ECTS and thermostat. If we dont get rain again tomm I am going to attempt cleaning out the EGR and maybe reclean the throttle body properly. Is there a certain way to clean out the intake manifold?? There is a ton of carbon built up in there. I am a newbie at auto repair so any help/tips would be highly appreciated.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
