The idle speed is not adjustable. It is controlled by the computer. If your idle speed is not correct, then your engine management system needs service.

SOURCE: engine idle speed

Sounds like you idle air control valve is starting to mess up. You can actually take this off and clean it with throttle body cleaner and it should help get your idle back to normal. As is sounds the idle air control valve controls how fast/slow your car idles. It is located on the throttle body normally held on with a couple of screws. The throttle body is where the air duct hose coming from the air filter box ends at the engine block. Here is a picture of what you are looking for: a483326.jpg
Make sure that you clean the valve portion and not the electrical plug with the throttle body cleaner. Let it air dry or blow lightly with compressed air before putting it back on. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

You can't adjust the idle , There is a minimum idle adjustment set at the factory , you don't want to mess with that . The PCM / ECM ,engine computer controls the idle speed by the idle air control valve (motor) .

WHAT ARE FORD ZETEC CAMBELT REPLACEMENT INTERVALS


60.000 miles/ 100.000 kilometres is the standard interval
it reduces for high speed engine work, dusty conditions and oil leaks
If there is oil mist/ dust evident on the cover, it is best to replace the belt, oil seals ,hydraulic adjuster and idler pulleys as the oily dust indicates a leak that will quickly destroy a timing belt

Engine idle/running speeds sometimes excessive


You have a throttle problem (it gets stuck) take it to a mechanic and have it cleaned and greased up and that should solve your problem.

Where is adjustment for idle located in 528


Idle speed is not adjustable, it is controlled by the fuel injection computer, even if you tried to adjust it the computer would over ride any adjustment made by you. I assure you idle speed has negligible affect on fuel consumption
