It should be on side of the throttle body where the cables connect. If it's not on the side, it's on the bottom side. It takes a flat head screw driver. You really shouldn't have to mess with the idle screw though. The throttle position sensor should set your idle for you. Also check the inside of the throttle body where the blades are and make sure that you don't have alot of dirt build up in it. Use throttle body cleaner and clean it really well. You'll most likely see alot of black dirt come out of it when you clean it. The dirt could be clogging the small gap that lets air in for idle.

Cannot figure how to adjust the idle on a 1997 ford escort lx


Hi, welcome to FixYa.com my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

There is a screw on the throttle body but you should never adjust it the idle is computer controlled. If the vehicle has a low idle check for a vacuum leak or a faulty Idle Air Control valve located on the throttlebody.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

I have a V6 2005 ford mustang. When I start the vehicle it runs for 5 seconds then dies. It does start back up, but dies again.


you may have a bad idle control sensor. is the check engine light on? if so, any auto zone or advance auto can code read it for free. that's if you can get the car there. usually if it does'nt idle like you've described,the idle control sensor is #1 suspect.they cosy around $20,00 and very simple to replace,only 2 screws and 1 plug in on the top of the engine. suggest that you try this 1st when you purchase this part,have the parts place explain the exact location of the part on the engine. thank you for choosing fixya.com

What should my 1998 ford expedition idle at right now it is ideling at 5 is this right


It should idle at 1100 or 1200 max, If it is 5000, something is wrong. 500, should stall out. Check the idle screw first, make sure it didn't come loose, If not, then you have to adjust the idle air mix and all that. Check it out, hope this helps.

1999 ford explorer starts, but will not stay started unless foot on gas pedal


SOUNDS LIKE THE IDLE IS TOO LOW! YOU MAY NEED TO IDLE IT UP JUST A LITTLE! YOU CAN EASILY DO THIS AT THE THROTTLE PLATE UNDER THE HOOD! THERE IS A SMALL BOLT, OR SCREW LOCATED ON THE BACK SIDE OF THAT PLATE! TURN IT CLOCKWISE, AND IT WILL RAISE THE IDLE!

1994 ford escort vibrates horribly in idle, does not stall. Idle is set @ 800rpm, runs smooth when raised to about 1200rpm. Suggestions?


Your Idle air control valve is probably going bad. It is located on the throttle body and is a relatively easy fix as it is only held in with 2 screws. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

the idle screw can be located by following the throttle cable to the carby body, you will find a quarter wheel which the cable hooks into at the bottom you'll see adjustment screw, this will adjust your idle speed.
