1996 d16y7 166k miles

starts up and idles high about 1500-2000 once its warm up idle stays consistently low
id say prolly 500 rpm
sometimes it will idle around 1k (on the tach) and i feel like thats where it should always be but it always goes down, its consistent but low

ive adjusted the idle screw before but it always seems to either get too high or too low so i put it back to the stock markings


any help would be great

also car seems to be getting no-so-well gas mileage and exhaust smells a little rich


thanks in advance

does the idle goes down almost to the point of shutting off the engine and goes back?

or maybe its not so dramatic, but it goes searching up and down?

do you have a fpr? at which psi do you have it set?

you've changed spark plugs recently. did you checked them today?

if they're soot black, your engine is rich.
