SOURCE: I have a problem with

there is no carb, and no adjustment. if it idles too high, there is a vacuum leak, so check the large hose going from the base of the throttle body to the valve cover. if thats OK, these are known to have a leak at the base gasket, usually at the rear of the throttle body. spray carb cleaner around the base and see if the idle changes, if it does, replace the base gasket.

Can anyone tell me the location of idle adjustment screw on 1990 4-runner v-6

If it's fuel injected, look on top of throttle body for a large screw that accepts a flat blade screwdriver. adjust by turning screw out slightly to increase RPM's;in to decrease. Unlike a carb stop screw, it's a jet controlling flow of air @ idle.

Location of idle adjustment screw on v6 with efi

There is no idle adjustment screw, as idle is controlled by the car's computer through the idle air control valve (IAC). This is possibly sticky, and needs a clean. There is a throttle stop screw on the engine, but that is a different thing.

1990 cressida over revving. where is idle screw on carby?

It sounds like it may need more than just an adjustment, the mixture screw is on the side down reasonably low close to the base plate, there are lots of different carbs used but the idle screw is usually right by the linkage point.

1990 geo metro engine surges up and down when stopped..... prevous owner told me he turned the idle down. So, is the surging a direct result of idle adjustment or something else? ...and where is the idle...

hi sounds like your engine is surging due to incorrect mixture now your idle screw is on the thottle cable were it connects to the carb and the mixture screw is on the carb body as an approx guide turn the mixture screw fully in then out two and a half turns that should help but y may need to fine ajust later
