Re: 1997 Gtv Idle Speed

you cant adjust it yourself. you may have to get get it reset by a dealer. mine does the same. i ahve has the throttle body cleaned, idle actuator changed and it still does the same. could be the throttle body needs replacing if the mechanism has been buggered by manually opening the butterfly. also check for cracks in air intake pipes.

Yes, I believe that the idle speed is done on the ECU programming so not really a DiY task I'm afraid.
