Before adjusting anything, try cleaning out the throttle body with some carby cleaner. This will often bring the idle back up as it clears out all the oil vapour inside the t.body, where the air is supposed to pass through. Follow the air intake hose from your air filter(i'm assuming it's an m.p.i). Where it is clamped on to is the throttle body. Undo the clamp and slide the hose off and back so you can see the open throat of the t.b. Spray some cleaner inside and on a clean rag, then hold the throttle wide open and wipe all the black residue off, and keep doing this until it's all clean inside. Also wipe clean the butterfly inside, including the edges. Restart the car, and if you're lucky all will be good.
