Have you checked for a computer code? That vehicle should have either a crankshaft position sensor or a camshaft position sensor. Make sure it is working properly.

You do not reset the check engine light on that year of sunbird, it will go off automatically whenever you fix whatever problem the computer is reading. Most likely it is one of your sensors that is malfunctioning. Check your Air Intake Temp Sensor (AIT) and your Oxygen Sensor (O2) as they are the most likely culprits.

Idle speed cannot be adjusted on this model. No manual adjustments available. Problem may lie in fuel pump, or fuel filter or temp sensor.

I think, and I THINK it is under the plastic cover on the left side of the engine, at least it is with a 2.0 4 cylender motor. You have to remove the belt covor than the belt, than the sensor should be visible. I say this because i read it in a Pontiac manual, that plus there are wires running in to the covor. Hope it helps
