on the throttle body, there is a screw, the easiest way to locate it is have someone rev your engine while you look for it. it is on the upper part of the engine, near the fire wall, on the left side of the fuel filter.

in a little more detail...

(http://www.autolibrary.org/)

If idle adjustment is necessary, place the engine control module in the correct mode, then turn the idle adjusting screw


The idle adjustment screw is located on the idle air control valve. The screw is visible through the intake manifold on the passenger’s side


Connect a tachometer to the engine using the manufacturer’s instructions.
Detach the throttle position sensor electrical connector. Start the engine.
Check the idle speed. Idle speed should be 600-700 rpm with the transmission/transaxle in N.
Race the engine at 2000-3000 rpm 2-3 times under no-load, then run the engine at idle.
As required, adjust the idle speed to specification by turning the distributor after loosening the attaching bolts.
Stop the engine and connect the throttle position sensor. Start the engine.
Race the engine at 2000-3000 rpm 2-3 times under no-load, then run the engine at idle.
Check the idle speed again. Idle speed should be 650-750 rpm with the transmission/transaxle in N.
Stop the engine and remove the tachometer.




this is for a '97

Fette! With the tech talk! Very impressive. :D
Suffice to say, it really isn't on the throttle body, or near the firewall.
Jethro_13 has a point, there, though. Maybe your idle has dropped due to air/fuel filter or the need for a tuneup.

A. That's too high
B. Did you read Fette's post? You don't adjust the idle with the screws at the throttle body. If you don't believe her or me, ask my friend Mr. Haynes.
