First of all, its IDLE. Do you have any lights on in your speedometer. Sounds like a problem in the fuel system(injector, pump etc). Also could be your idle control valve. Not too familiar with the colt though

7,415

if your screw is moving around coz of vibration. use thread locking compound; ex. loctite to keep screw in place. i hope this helps the idle stay within limit. happy motoring! :) ohhh and... be sure all vaccuum hoses are not leaking esp. rubber. they should be replaced if 5+yrs old.
