Step 2:

Begin by turning the idle air mixture screw left by 1 and a half turns to adjust it to the factory setting.

Next, starting from this position, gradually turn the screw a quarter turn to the right, pausing each time to check if the engine RPM decreases.

Once you observe a decrease in engine RPM, take note of this point.

Then, turn the adjustment screw to the left until the RPM begins to stumble or become irregular.

Finally, set the adjuster screw between these two points where the engine stumbles or the RPM starts to decrease.

For example :

At one turn, you'll notice the engine RPM starting to decrease. By two turns, the RPM begins to get irregular. At two and a half turns, that's the sweet spot where the idle mixture screw should be set.
