    I am told that my model Tacoma, 2001 2.7l, has a screw that is inset on the throttle body, that if turned will raise/lower the idle by adjusting the air allowed in. does anyone know where on the throttle body this screw is located? or maybe have a picture of the location?
    thanks

    You should never have to adjust this, something else is making it idle too low...but the idle screw is an allen head that stops the throttle plate...

    View the build. Too much to list.
    Check around page SF-27 in the FSM.
