There's an idle speed screw on the side of your injectors/carburettor. when you turn it clockwise it will slow the speed down. This should be a screw sticking out of the carburettor/injector pump with a spring around it's base, you should be able to turn it with your fingers but if its too hard to turn you will be able to get it with either a 6~8mm socket or a flat bladed screwdriver. There will be another one for idle mixture but you need to get the one connected to the throttle linkage. This procedure will be explained with details/picture in a workshop manual which i would recommend buying.

Engine idling fast


The most common reasons for a high idle speed is a sticking throttle, vac leak, or a faulty idle air bypass valve. The computer uses the valve to control idle speed.

I have a 1991 honda civic hatch with 1.5 engine idles fast cold and hot and ECU flashes twenty times


Hi Jason, I suggest you take the vehicle and have a diagnostic scan carried out. Doing that will pin point the problem area and take out the guess work. I have known occasions when someone has tried to adjust the throttle butterfly, hoping to reduce the idling speed and by doing that have taken the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) out of the correct adjustment, causing abnormal idle speed. Regards John

My 1991 Celica GTS has a fast idle even when the engine is warm. I have already turned the idle adjust screw all the way down.


The idle on these is controlled electronically by an IAC solenoid (idle air control). Adjusting the screw will not do anything to adjust your idle down. Chances are you could have a vacuum leak, or a faulty IAC solenoid. I would start by checking for vacuum leaks.

My 1991 mercury grand marquise seems to be idling to high at all times.


Try removing the neg battery cable.leave it off for 10 min. It will take the computer a few miles of driving to re-learn the idle. Hope this helps

1991 S10 2.5L throttle body idles to fast


A vehicle that old will suffer from brittle and cracked vacuum lines. I would say there is a bad, or several bad lines leaking away vacuum from the intake manifold. Don't forget to check the hose going to the PCV on the valve cover. A vacuum leak will also cause the engine to stumble and miss intermittently when idling.

Idle too fast?


Check for vacuum leak at the base of the throttle body. Also check all vacuum line and for loose connection points
