car is idolling low.. need some techy help

Car: 92 acura integra RS 1.8L

problem: Car idols low around 400-600 RPM's

Attempted fix: changing spark plugs and tighting the screw on the throttle cable.. brought it up to 900-1000RPM's

Current situation: its back down to 400-600RPM's and i dont want to tighten the nut on the cable again because it hasnt really moved. Aside from maybe a leaking head gasket and/or replacing air filter (tho this shouldnt have that big of an effect on idol state) I'm stuck for possible fixes.

Thanks in advance!
