Just guessing here, possible carbon buildup. seems the 3E venturi carbureted engines are famous for it. Any noises or smells noticed that are out of the ordinary?

Location of idle adjustment screw on v6 with efi

There is no idle adjustment screw, as idle is controlled by the car's computer through the idle air control valve (IAC). This is possibly sticky, and needs a clean. There is a throttle stop screw on the engine, but that is a different thing.

How do I adjust the idle on my 1993 24 DL Volvo?

Trace the throttle cable from the accelerator pedal to the engine block , it will terminate in a lever

Somewhere on the backside of that lever is a screw which you can screw in to set the idle speed

Honda civic 2000- idle speed is high even in park or neutral

Check your coolant level. The Idle air control valve works with coolant in the system and will produce high idle it there is very little coolant. Also check to see if there are any vacuum lines disconnected. They can also cause the high idle.

Nissan ga15 engine idle adjustment locations

The idle speed is computer controled, it is not adjustable, you most likely have sludge in the throttle valve and the idle speed control air bypass valve, clean them with carb spray with the engine running.

Where is adjustment for idle located in 528

Idle speed is not adjustable, it is controlled by the fuel injection computer, even if you tried to adjust it the computer would over ride any adjustment made by you. I assure you idle speed has negligible affect on fuel consumption
