Hi guys I am new to this so hopefully posted in the right place. I have a 2002 Focus and recently the idle has been playing up. When I start it from cold the idle pulses for a little while until I get going and seems to settle down. Also when cold seems to idle at about 1200 but settles when engine has warmed up. Any suggestions on what could be wrong and how to solve? Cheers.

idle control valve shouldnt idle that high when cold

Cheers are they expensive to replace?

1200 sounds about right to me for cold idle

What about the movement when cold? Seems to settle when the car is warm.

1200 never had mine idle quite that high 1000-1100 for about 30seconds then it would slowly settle at 900 when warm 750rpm.

not expensive to replace 30quid and do it yourself you could try cleaning what you have already and see if it helps
