1998 Chevy Beretta mileage: 95,000. My car is in very good condition; however, it has developed a rough idle upon coming to a complete stop. The tachometer oscillates between 200 Rpms to approximately 1300 Rpms. If I don't even off the idle by giving it a little gas, the engine stalls. How and where do I adjust the idle? Thank you in advance for your help.

The idle speed is controlled by the computer. Your car may be ready for a major tune-up including spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, fuel filter and air filter. Also, perform a fuel pump pressure test. Clean fuel injection system including throttle bore, idle speed control motor and passages. If problem still exists, scan computer for trouble codes.
