A 1999 will be computer controlled and you cannot adjust the idle like you would with a carb. If it is idling rough there is probably a larger problem in play. Most auto parts stores will read the trouble codes from the computer for you and help you track down the problem.

there is a sensor on it called the E G R valve replace it that's on a 1999 5.4 engine

You cant. The idle is controlled by the ecu.

You don't. The Idle is controlled by the ECM. There are no idle adjustments

All Ford vehicles cannot adjust idle nor timing wich is pre-set at the factory and the computer sets the idle and timing, vehicles after 1990 no longer can be adjusted.

The idle speed is computer controlled

The computer does - there is no way to adjust it. If it is improper something is wrong with one of the sensors - that is the most likely problem.

Idle is not adjustable. You have a electrical or vacuum issue that needs diagnosed.

A bad IAC (Idle air control valve) or a vacuum leak or both.

Don't mess with that adjustment. The idle speed is electronically controlled.

It is very likely there is no way to adjust the idle on your car. If your car is idling low, it's probably a problem somewhere else. Idle is likely controlled by the computer.

The engine idle is controlled by the ECU, and is not adjustable. If the engine is not idling properly, either too fast or too slow, take it to a shop and have them check the OBDII codes.

The idle setting for a 2001 ford escort zx2 is something that is not owner adjustable. It the idle is off, check for vacuum leaks or a clogged air filter.

User Avatar

unfortunately, you cant. it is controlled bu the ecm. you must have either a vaccum leak or an egr problem. also could be the idle air control valve. good luck!!

At the base of the carburetor are 2 screws. One adjusts the idle speed and the other adjusts the idle mixture. Screw the idle mixture in until the engine starts missing then screw it out 1 turn. Then, adjust the idle speed screw to about 850 RPM.
