What would cause a car to intermittently shutter when starting and run but then stall later when idling?
Fuel filter was replaced less than a year ago. Battery is original, factory. Car ('02 Saturn SL1) has about 125,000 miles on it. Problem is intermittent and usually occurs after car has been running and is turned off and back on. One final note: The car will turn over, run, all electrical works, no dimming of headlights. Car can be driven but will stall when idling later. Quick fix seems to be simply turning the car off then back on immediately.
Timing belt or tensioner, loss of charging, fuel pump, ignition module among others. This year and model has a recall posted for the ignition switch. When the faulty ignition switch becomes worn over time, the vehicle will begin to intermittently and suddenly shut off while driving or while standing and idling. The recall notice says that the car will be able to restart but will continue to intermittently shut off without warning.

Well, a transmission itself does not idle...the engine does. A vacuum leak in the engine will cause faster idling or slower idling depending on where the leak is. Newer transmissions do not use vacuum at all for their operation. Older vehicles used vacuum to help with the shifting of gears-automatic transmissions.
