Ok, how do you adjust for a lean mixture?

See previous thread on adjusting idle....

They said they adjusted for a lean condition, but the idle would increase if they did that... So they reset it back to the lean condition and said it was a bad idle control valve.

I'm fairly competent with cars, but this is new to me.

Connect a voltmeter to the output wire/s of the lambda and ground the other lead.You should see roughly 500 millivolt and if not,turn the 3mm screw.Adjust CO only after the engine is thoroughly warmed up.
