My car idles really high over 1000 rpms. how do i adjust this problem?

A lot here depends on what make and year of car are----quite normal for 1000 in park but should be for most vehicles 6-7 hundred in drive etc.

What vehicle do you have? Is it worse after warm or better or ?

When accelerating tachometer keeps rising and wont shift into 3rd gear, rpms just keep reving. Car is brand new only 1000 miles on it

Go straight to the dealership and have it repaired. Don't let anybody else work on it. It may void your warranty.

2004 escalade, tachometer only register between 0-1000 rpms. Idles at 0. ???

Your probably going to have to bring the car for service. When it is idling and reading 0 can you rev the engine? Does doing this change the tachometer reading or no? When you drive it is it only going to 1000 rpms maximum? If so, it seems that you aren't getting to the higher gears. Either way, if it continues, definitely bring it in for service.

Car revs higher than normal at about 30mph even though in top gear and tachometer doesn't show abnormally high reading.

You may have a defective tachometer gauge stepper motor, making the tachometer show incorrect RPMs.

How many turns in should the throttle screw be on a 1991 f150 with a 351 windsor

I believe that most automatics like 600 RPMs in drive.As far as how many turns that is,you can use the median settings of one to one and one half after the screw makes contact with it's stop.If you don't have a tachometer to set the RPMs use the turn to turn and a half initial setting and readjust while the engine is running in park.You don't want it to lurch into gear because of too high a setting so take it easy.Lots of RPMs won't let you stop on ice,the engine will power right thru the brakes.So find a tachometer and set the curb idle speed according to the specification sticker on your shock tower or radiator support.

Good idling speed

This all depends on when you are reading the rpms becaus ethe engine will run faster when you first start it to bring it up to operating temperature than it will drop down to about 700-800 when the engine is warm. i recommend letting your engine warm up, than read your tach and if it is still reading 1000 rpms than reduce it down to 700-800. your ECU will compensate for this when your engine is cold.

this could also be a possible bad Idle Air Control Valve because your engine speed should be regulated by the computer.
