on it idles between 1000-2000...my dad talked to someone and he said that there was no
way to adjust it because it's controlled by the computer...HELP??????

1 Answer

First of all, he's right, it can't be adjusted. Cold, for a few minutes should idle at maybe 1200, then when thermostat opens drop to 900 or so. You might have unmetered air, a vacuum leak, or a bad MAF, 02 sensor, IAC , does it have CEL on?
