Hi All. Please help! I recently reconditioned my Duratec 2.0L Mondeo engine. The engine idles fine, revs fine, starts fine and even accelerates fine. However, whenever I depress the clutch at an intersection, the revs fall right down and the engine dies. It starts at the first swing again. Someone told me that the timing was out. I rechecked and reset it. Still the same problem. What else can I try? Thanks.

Idle control valve would the likely culprit. Other possibilities; crankshaft sensor (hence somebody telling you the timing might be out), or lambda sensor.

Thanks. I will check those.
