HI GUYS.

LOOKING FOR A 'HOW TO' TO CLEAN THE IDLE CONTROL VALVE.
TO BE HONEST NOT EVEN SURE WHERE IT IS ON A 2.0L FOCUS?
IS IT IN THE THROTTLE BODY ON THE SIDE OF IT??
I AM ASSUMING THEY CAN JUST BE CLEANED WITH CARB CLEANER AND PUT BACK ON???

Have something to contribute?

changing the icv on a 2.0 sounds like hard work as i think its inside the throttle body??
may get one from scrappy to see if it sorts out idle prob, that way i'll have an idea how it comes apart lol.

just read all the posts you have idle problems and a problem where the car feels like its braking without diagnostics you could replace loads of parts from a clogged fuel filter to a dodgy injector a faulty sensor or a faulty maf i think it would be cheaper to have diagnostics done first as these problems sound related in which case the idl control wont be the cause
