I know this should probably be in the 1.8 forum, but I figure it's a pretty general question. My motor has always idled high, between 1000-1500 in park. I have never changed the idle setpoint, and the yellow paint on the idle screw doesn't appear to have ever been disturbed. When I got the car, someone had already advanced the timing (I forget what, but it's the common 2nd gen GT setting that was suggested on the tuner forums) and I left it there... would this affect the idle speed? I was already thinking about setting the timing back to factory, and certainly don't want to end up adjusting the idle twice. Thanks.

first of all check all the vacuum hoses, make sure they all go where the are supposed to (solved my high idle problem).
