As title says, i read all the time about setting base idle and all that. And mines been dropping lately. So I turn the car off, unplug the idle control motor plug, start the car but it doesnt start, have to keep the revs up... is that normal? Should i bump the screw up until the car does idle without the switch?

Cheers
Josh

Exactly as you said but also clean out the solenoid by using carb cleaner after removing it from the throttle body
