Can anyone help me fix the idle speed?

The car idles at 2k in park. I need it to run closer to 1k.

i got nothing for you, but i know you can figure it out. if it's not throwing a code, look for vacuum leaks or binding in the linkage/cable.

many years ago, you said to me, "you know, that tire would already be off the ground if your shock wasn't broke in two." and you were right.

+1 on vacuum. The vacuum system on these cars is a real pain. Check the connection and vacuum tubes for leaks, I hear people do it with ether or carb cleaner and see if the idle changes when the volatile solvent is sprayed on a fitting, meaning you have a leak.

Good luck!
