To adjust the idle on a 2005 Honda Civic locate the idle control valve. The IACV and is found near the intake manifold. Open the top of the valve and tighten it to lower the idle or loosen it to raise it.

you cant without having a remap. its controlled electonically by the ecu via the Idle air control valve on the throttle body. generally only vehicles fitted with carburetor can adjust idle speed manually.

a 98 Honda civic should not have a carburetor. it is a fuel injected vehical. in this case there might be a screw that you can adjust the idle with. have someone watch the engine as you pump the gas. the engine can be off when you do this. they will show you the arm, of lever that moved. when it sits all the way down (gas pedal off all the way) it will stop on a screw. turning it right = idle up, turn left (counterclockwise) = idle down. but mostlikely everything is all electric and a shop will have to adjust it with a computer.
