Explanation:
When talking about engines, "idle" can be translated as "ralentí".

So, the sentence in your question could be translated as "Ajuste / ajustar ... el motor al ralentí apropiado".

funcionar en régimen mínimo, en mínima


Explanation:
"Ralentí" is also correct, but I have never heard it in actual conversation.
An option coul be "Ajuste el motor al régimen de (rotación) mínima adecuado".

Hope this helps, best regards,
