There is no idle screw. The idle control solonoid is on the throtle body and sometimes it can get dirty needing cleaning. ---- Well, this is assuming you have TBI or fuel injection, or if it is a carbuerated engine, if it is FI, the idle is set at the factory, no adjustment to the idle is recommended, as the computer controls the idle in FI engine's, if you must, their is a idle adjustment screw under a tin cap seated in your throttle body, an awl or a similar tool can remove this cap, is it located directly in front of the throttle stop, lower right of your TBI unit. jr Since in 1992 there WASN"T a carbureated engine in that car, if you are having idle problems the culprit would be the Idle Air Control Valve (IAC Valve). There is no cleaning it, only replacing it will fix your issue, assuming you don't have an intake gasket leak. Scott

Where is the idle adjustment on a 1992 protege?

I looked into this about 5 years ago. idle is not user adjustable and the 92 is factory set to idle very slow about 800 to 900 rpm. I think it is computer controlled. Incorrect sir. There is a bolt under where the accelator cable is connected that you can adjust and it WILL affect your idle, you can do this with a simple screw driver if you really feel that you need to.
