Adjusting idle

99 tj; I had a exhaust leak and I added a all in one gasket, my jeep mysteriously only had one on the intake.
All is well but now she idles high about 2k. What is the best way to adjust this? The butterfly valve off and adjust that upside down screw? Seems too complicated for just this.

Thanks!

You most likely have a leak in the intake on the new gasket. There is no idle adjustment on the TJ.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

Can I diagnose that with carb cleaner or something? If so how should I fix that?

Your idle was normal before? You removed the manifold, replaced the gasket, reinstalled the manifold, and now you have a high idle. The manifold isn't seated properly.

Yeah it was normal before, basically what you said. I guess I'll take it all off again tomorrow after work
