Question about Subaru Legacy
im dave hope i can help
technically the idle control on your vehicle is computer controlled and non adjustable. If the idle is high or low there is likely a code in your emission system (check engine light) and a sensor or emissions part that is not working properly or the computer itself. However if you look on throttle body you will find a slotted screw that will adjust the air/fuel mixture to get a better idle. When you find the screw be sure to have the engine running while you adjust it so you can hear the differences. If you would like to fix it properly you will need to the pull the codes from the computer diagnostic terminal. If you'd like to do that after adjustment of your air/fuel mixture post back. It would be a good idea to make a mark between the screw and the throttle body so that when you fix the emission related component causing the erratic idle you can put the screw back to its original position before restarting the engine
