If it is running ragged and eventually stops, it is because the engine idle is too high. It has an idle solonoid that controls the idle speed and sometimes you need to take it out of the throtle body and clean it, If it just idles smoothly as if you didn't turn the key off, it is probably the ignition switch which is on the steering column under the dash. Not where you insert the key. that is simply the lock mechanism.

How much would it cost to replace or rebuild the engine in a 1994 Saturn sc1?

I am not sure how much it would cost to rebuild the engine, but I just did an engine swap on my saturn. The engine cost $325 and it had 102,000 miles on it. Keep in mind that this price doesn't include the price for the oil/filter, coolant, sparkplugs/wires. All said and done my car was up and running like a new car for under $400.00. The hardest part of the whole thing was actually finding an engine for it.
