Is it that screw on the throttlebody? the BISS screw?

my car idles at aroun 500rpm.. so its kinda lumpy.. I would like to raise it to around 750.. I tried turning that screw counterclockwise and it did raise the idle to that level.. then I reset the ECU and it was back to 500,, ?? if I turn the screw too much a hissing noise occurs.. what the hell is that?

I believe that the hissing is air escaping b/c you pulled the screw out too far. And yes, that's the BISS

That article is about idel surge my idle doesent surge, its just too low.. its stready and pretty consistant.. but its just too low (a tad under 500rpm) so it causes the car to be kinda jerky at low speed low accelerations... what I want is to RAISE the idle.. its alreayd smooth, just too low.

I did that too but I didn't reset the ECU and it worked fine for me. Is your throttle body dirty?

Right, but the troubleshooting steps that are listed there could fall into your situation too.

The hissing noise is air going out. It could also be that the o-ring on the screw is going bad.
