Mazda midge 323 idle?

Not certain what question you are asking; normal idle is 750-800 RPM hot, transmission in park (AT) or neutral (MT). Cold idle can be 1500-2000 RPM. Idle speed is adjusted at the trhottle body; remove the rubber plug, turn the screw to increase or decrease as required, when the engine is warmed up and in park or neutral. A wandering or hunting idle may be indication of a worn throttle body butterfly valve shaft; poor fuel pressue; vacuum leak; or worn out throttle position sensor, etc. Good luck Malcolm
