Before you could adjust the mixture, make sure that the spark plug gaps, ignition timing and valve clearance are all OK.
- Start the engine and bring it at operating temperature.
- Adjust the throttle stop screw to bring it at the stable rpm.
- Turn in the idle mixture screw while observing the engine speed till the engine starts to stall. At this point turn out the idle mixture screw and keep on opening slowly till the engine acquire the most stable rpm. Finally adjust the throttle stop screw to obtain the desired idle speed.

Check the codes and see if any are stored. Make sure all the wiring to the sensors and engine ground wires are connected.
