Idle speed cannot be adjusted on this model. No manual adjustments available. Problem may lie in fuel pump, or fuel filter or temp sensor.

If your engine is ideling fast its probably temperature senser. There is no adjustment for idle. that last answer is not entirely true. u can adjust the idle. but it depends on if its a throttle body unit that looks like a carburetor or a smaller unit. on a TBI unit, there is a screw u can adjust but the only way to adjust it is with the right tool. its not a Philips screw or straight blade. but if its idling high or fast it might be the idle air control valve. the one went out on my 1985 sunbird and caused it to idle funny.

My pa says follow the throttle cable and you will find a nut that turns to adjust the idle. You can do this when the car is running, making it easier to see how much adjustment it needs. He says a half turn or full turn either way will usually do the trick. I need to find a diagram or picture for the throttle cable but hope that helps a little
