I'm pretty sure that engine does not have a carburetor so there will be no mechanical adjustment for the idle speed. But fuel injected cars have an Idle Control Valve (IAC valve) and the idle is controlled by the engine computer. You want to locate that part somewhere near the air intake. Inspect/clean or replace it if it looks stuck/clogged. Or scan for codes.

There is no fuel idle screw. The throttle stop is factory set on the throttle body, don't adjust it. If the idle is too high , check for air in the intake system, like a leak in one of the pipes or hoses.
