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.

How do you adjust the idle on a fuel injected 89 Pontiac Sunbird?

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.

How do you adjust the idle on a 03 kx85?

The idle screw is on the left side of the carburetor, it's black and made of plastic with a spring on it. Turning it clockwise makes the bike idle faster, turning the screw counterclockwise will slow it down. It's a lot easier to do this when the bike is running, you can hear the engine and make sure its not idling too fast or too slow. I have my idle screw set to 3 1/4 turns out from all the way in.

Having trouble idling either too fast or too slow?

Idle speed is something that you will have to occasionally adjust on carbed bikes. They are not what you call high tech machines that have a computer that takes care for you. You may notice on a hot day your bike may idle a little higher when warmed up and lower on a cold day. This is ok...just adjust the idle speed screw...most increase when you turn to the right...etc..
