Hello there, thank you for asking about your 1986 Ford V8-5.0L. The throttle body and idle air control valve should be cleaned first. The idle is not adjustable on this vehicle but the throttle stop on the throttle body can be set by disconnecting the idle control valve and setting the base idle to 525 rpm, then reconnecting the idle control valve. If you notice your car has a rough idle, an expert from YourMechanic can come inspect your car and make the necessary repairs.
