Throttle body adjustment

Does anyone know how to adjust the throttle valve (followed by TPS) back to their original idle settings? I re-adjusted the TPS but I dont think that my actual throttle valve is set quite right. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Throttle body adjustment

Try these links. It has some good information. I tried the the setting the idle problem fix section. When I ajusted the throttle body idle screw according to the instructions, the idle just returned to the way it was before. Still idles like crap! It may work for you though. Good luck.

Re: Throttle body adjustment

thanks for the links, my car seems to idle fine, just a little high since I re-adjusted the TPS, so i might just leave it.
