It's a flat head screw on the throttle body, just below the ISC. You will need to reset the TPS if you increase the idle.

Here you go:

If you increase the idle the TPOS value will also increase.......this can cause unstable idle.

White smoke coming out of the air cleaner?

Could be the motor "breathing", technically this should be returned to the engine.

White smoke is also the engine burning coolant, but this is seen from the exhaust.

ye the pod filter casing, it just like seeped out this white smoke for 2-3 seconds then stopped. and exhaust blows white smoke after gear change sometimes, im bit worried it has something to do with the turbo :\ even though its been re-con it shouldnt blow smoke, oil or something like that right? turbo seals? sorry for questions man but rather get it answer by people who own cordias then paying for mechanics to have a look and then give me a complelty different reason to what people say on here..

If the turbo is recon then disregard it........sounds like engine......could be using coolant (cracked head) or depending on boost pressure it would be oil entering the inlet manifold AFTER the PCV valve has opened.

cracked head?? fuk no!!, could be though :\, how could i check if it is burning coolant? i checked radiator and thats coolant mixed with water and looks good, i have no leaks that i can notice, if the head were cracked would the car still boost? or would it have no pull? no im worried ive been boosting on a cracked head, fudge always have little problems with the cordias lol i CANT STAND IT but i fkn love these cars <33

Best way to tell is pull the plugs out when cold, turn it over and watch for coolant sprayed out of the cylinder..........another way to tell is the engine will "stumble" when revved cold............and the last, the cylinder plug will be cleaner than the rest (gets a stream clean)

If it's running alright I would just check your fluid levels (coolant & oil) before driving.
