you need it plugged into the computer for diagnostics mate it sounds like a possible idle control valve issue but the traction control may indivcate other faults best way to find out whats wrong is to get it plugged in

I had a similar problem years ago when I had an Escort, and it turned out to be a split in one of the air hoses.

i had that problem with my last car a vectra that turned out to be a blocked valve the mechanic cleaned it up and it was great after.

I had the exact same problem with my 01 1.8 petrol focus and it was the idle control valve that needed changed. replaced the idle control valve and i have never had the problem since.
