There is a set screw on the side of the throttle body, use small adjustments to bring it up slightly.

Hi I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

I'm glad to help!

One of the biggest reasons an engine idles to high is because of vacuum leaks. Check all the hoses for cracks and while looking listen very close for the vacuum leak it will be a hissing sound. For further assistance visit my website below. Have an awesome day! Auto Repair

Ford escort won't idle sputter out rpm go below 1000

This is usually caused by having a vacuum hose come off or
connected to the wrong place. The diagram is under the hood.
Also the cold air bypass could be dirty and need cleaning. I use
carb cleaner in a spray can.
Other check air filter, plugs, wires.

4.0 liter motor will not idle below 24500 rpm. 1994 aerostar, 4 liter motor, auto

i hope that the 24,500 RPM is a miss-print and you mean 2450 RPM.

get a can of carburetor cleaner and spray around the intake manifold with the engine running if there is a vacuum leak causing the idle problem when you spray the cleaner around the leak the idle will change, if you find no leaks replace the idle control valve or motor witch ever you want to call it.

let me know if there is any thing else you need.

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!
