SOURCE: Idle seems a bit high. Need to know how to adjust and what RPM

There are a couple of things that come to mind. One is make sure the EGR Valve and intake manifold are not carboned up. I normally have to clean them every 60 to 80,000 miles. It will actually close up with Carbon and restrict air flow and make the EGR valve malfunction. 
Secondly, the diesel pump may just have a lot of wear and it is putting out too much fuel at idle. The only way this can be checked is by the dealer with a VW specific scan tool such as VAG-COM. With this tool, you can go in and look at the the pump timing and start injection quantity. 
I have the start injection quantity many times but you have to have the software and login to get the readings. Most dealers will not do this but would rather sell you a pump if it is off.
Remove the hose from the intake where it connects to the EGR valve and look at the inside with a flashlight. See how much carbon is accumulated. This may not solve this problem but will help with starting and performance issues if corrected.

Good luck and hope this helps. To adjust the Idle, it needs to be programed in to the ECM so i am thinking that it's a Carbon issues that is restricting the air flow which the ECM is compensating to keep the engine from stalling.

You might also check the single injector, had a friend's that the fuel pressure regulator had been messed with and was over-pressurizing the injector, that weakened the injector allowing it to flood at idle and also when cut off (the injector was leaking)

Yeah it sounds kinda high. There is no adj except for the idle screw on the throttle, the computer does the rest, if it has one. If not, then you can adjust it some how. If carbureted, check for 2 little screws in the front, and check the choke, If throttle body, then just the idle screw, the idle should be around 1000. Hope this helps.

1995 geo tracker .. when start the truck it idles at 3000 rpm and when shifting between gears it idles high at 3000 rpm .. it randomly started this but i also noticed when it started doing that my lighter...


Hello,
I doubt it has anything to do with your lighter/aux, but change the fuse on it and see if that corrects the problem. Check to see if you can pull the gas pedal back with your hand and see if that lowers the RPM. Old cars can wear the parts that make your pedal rise fully back up.
There is also the intake adjustment screw near where your intake meets the manifold. It's usually a phillip's screw. This will lower or raise your RPM levels on idle. You may have to adjust the screw. Every time you make 1/4 turn adjustments, you need to let the car run for awhile as the process is gradual and NOT immediate. This is the steps I would take because I know my cars, but if you feel uncertain, please take it to a mechanic. Best of Luck!
