something like disconnecting the isc, then putting the car in diagnostic mode by bridging the 2 connectors in the dash. Then after the revs settle, turn the butterfly screw in till it idles at 600rpm, then you can connect the isc

however ive never been able to do it that way cause as soon as i reconnect the isc, it shoots up to 3000rpm :?

Thats because when you do it, you are supposed to have a .75 feeler gauge in between the screw and butterfly. Then it'll work.

the procedure is disconect the isc. put a 0.75 feeler gauge between the throttle screw and the throttle stop.
start the engine and adjust the screw untill the engine idles at 600rpm..
remove the feeler gauge and the car should stall or near stall..
plug the isc back in and thats it..
start the car and the idle should be 650-750rpm in neutral..
