Hey how are you ,I will Try to Help you with This Issue

Did you move that screw already ,or you could not , there is no manual adjustment on it ,it is computer controlled ?

you must have a check engine light on ,if you do ,did you scan it for fault codes ?

If you do not mind me asking are you looking for the most possible causes and taking it to a repair shop or you are repairing it yourself and you need step by step instructions
Please Let Me Know

Check engine light is on.Did not scan, can not do that.

Sounds we have a vacuum leak or tb body issue , how about cleaning the tb body for carbon build up on the plate and is getting stuck ,

you can try that ,get a can cleaner from local parts store

also get some starting fluid and spray around intake and vacuum lines on cold engine so we want cause a fire and see if engine rpm surges up when you spray,

now-days if you have advance auto ,auro zone oreilly they will scan it for free and give you fault codes
