Engine Performance problem
1997 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 250k miles

Autozone diagnostic test came back as " engine lean fuel trim". He said no parts needed only adjustment. Can you tell me where and what to adjust or do I need to take it in for specialized fuel metering? Runs rough at idle and losing gas mileage. Was 29mpg, now 23mpg. Thanks.E
