on 1994 Lincoln Continental

Sometimes when I stop the engine runs above idle especially when I make a quick stop after accelerating away from a light or stop sign. How do I correct this?

You cannot adjust the idle speed. You may have a vacuum leak or possibly a bad Idle Air Control motor. I recommend you get a diagnostic test.
