High Idling, Dies Randomly, 1999 Saturn SL2
I have a manual 1999 Saturn SL2 with about 183,000 miles on it. When the oil was being changed about 7 months ago, the individual changing the oil created a spark under the car and since then, I have been having issues with my Saturn. The first issue is that I will start the car and it will die right away, it will turn over and if I push the gas, it will rev the engine, but the second that I release the gas, it will die. I will get it to start eventually, but something is wrong there. The other major issue I have is that now and then the Saturn will idle very high while I am coasting or even at a complete stop, why is this? Any help is much appreciated. I thought maybe something iwth the fuel injector/pump, the ECTS, the TPS, or maybe even the throttle needs cleaning, but I am not an expert in cars, so someone please give me input.

IAC Valve? MAP sensor?
The high idle is a vacuum leak somewhere or a sensor sending incorrect data. Check all the vacuum lines for cracks or breaks. Replace as needed. Intake Air Control Valve could be leaking/stuck/not functioning properly. It's on the throttle body somewhere. Same with the MAP sensor.
SES light? any stored codes? Go to auto parts store and they will read them for you for free.
1999---Leaking intake gasket?
