Low idle speed.

Car: 1989 260E,
Is there an adjustment for idle speed?
With transmission in gear with a warm engine, idle is between 475 and 500RPM. Very stable (no ups or down) but I can feel the car is about to stall. It actually never stalls but idle speed is too low.
Any adjustment possible? Thanks

obviously something is wrong. my car idles at
700rpm. when was the last time you had a tune up?
maybe you should start from there. the OVP and
idle control valve are some of the possibilities.
good luck.
