Focus Mk11.6 Zetec Rough Idle

3 posts in this topic

Morning Guys,

I bought a little focus yesterday, mainly to use as a second car and a run around.

It does have an issue that i'm sure is quite easy to fix.

When the car is idling it (when warm) it feels rather rough, it idles at about 750 rpm and just feels a bit shaky, when i pull away it's a tiny bit hesitant, but nothing too bad, when driving in normal driving circumstances its fine, it's only when you come to stop.

I've seen on the net that this is quite a common problem, the car is a 2001 model with 113k on the clock , so i'm assuming a sensor , valve or pipe is leaking, where should i start looking?

Any help would be great!

could be the ICV as the prime suspect, you can remove this and clean it.

Hi, thanks for this.

I have an slightly noisy exhaust as well, but i could just be imagining it.

Where is the ICV and how do i clean it?
