Is there just a screw I can turn to raise the idle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

IDLE TO LOW

1 Answer

113,155

Low idle can be caused by dirty/faulty idle air control valve or dirty throttle plate. Turn your a/c on. Does the idle raise? Turn your steering wheel hard to the left. Does your idle raise? If answer to both is no then it's more than likely your idle air control valve.
