Dazed Re: 2000 saturn sl oil and idle issues

Sorry for the long reply, I finally finished work on the problem. Cylinders 3 and 4 weren't getting full compression because I had burnt and warped exhaust valves over them. After replacing them the car runs fine with no starting issues except it still will occasionally run at an incredibly high idle when the clutch is disengaged and send oil through the exhaust. And this I can tell you now is not because of any lack of compression, though because of the high idle I wouldn't be surprised if that caused the exhaust valves burning out.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
