1998 Toyota Corolla - Low idle

when starting when cold, the car idles very low & sometimes stalls.
when it warms it's ok.
Is there some sort of adjustment?

Cheers
John

When you start it warm does the idle raise up and then come down to the normal idle?

No, it seems to just stay at the normal idle.
Thanks

Sounds like a bad Idle speed control motor.

If you need the removal of the ISC send me a PM of your email. The file is to large to attach.

I would try cleaning the Mass air sensor. Here is a link with pictures on how to clean one, scroll down the page a bit and you will see it. It's for a 4x4 but it's the same.
